Two Padres Links 4/24

I was going to post some links, but there aren't really many worthwhile stories out there this morning that I can find.

I'm going to the game tonight. They better win because three losses in a row is about the most I can stomach.

Every Friday is Friarworks Fireworks for the whole season. Do fireworks bring in crowds? Those are pretty expensive so they must. Is that what people want to see? I prefer to only watch fireworks on July 4th, otherwise they just don't have the same appeal. You look at a Christmas Tree in July and it's just not the same.

I'm going to try and sample the Five for $5 if all goes according to plan.

Here's my two links:

  • Everybody is wondering if the Padres are for real. This is the point last season where things went sour. "Five games and 5½ innings into an eight-game road trip, the Padres were 4-1 and holding a 4-0 lead – and looking to have only their second winning road trip since 2007." They ended up 4-4 after losing three straight. Things appear to be getting real. Real fun! Ok, maybe just real.
  • Nobody really seems to have formed an opinion about Mark Neely yet. Channel 4 isn't getting hate email about him so that's a good thing.
  • Petco Park won the recycler of the year award yesterday. No link available.
  • GASLAMP BALL FLASHBACK. Our first failed t-shirt.
