APPY MOTHER'S DAY!!!
I know we have plenty of Gaslamp Ball mothers so hopefully your children are spoiling you with something that will bring you joy and reward for all of the hard work you've done.
If that's the case, I imagine you'll be staying very far away from this Open Thread and the Padres game today.
Tomorrow then... When you return to the often thankless task of being a mother on days other than Mother's Day, you will find this Open Thread and you will see our warm wishes and you will see the comments that your husbands and children have left in your regard and you will wonder why they were leaving comments on some stupid Open Thread as opposed to taking you out to breakfast or lunch or dinner or cleaning the toilet or something.
In terms of the game... I heard the Houston Astros all, from man to man except for Geoff Blum, don't think very highly of their mothers and baby mamas. On the other hand, the Padres ("fathers" in Spanish), are here solely to defend the honor of Madres ("mothers" in Spanish).
THIS IS OUR FIGHT TO WIN!!!
