Alliterative Padres Names

You've probably heard by now, but Dex and I hitched a ride on Fox Sports San Diego's new Fan Express bus to Spring Training in Peoria, Arizona last Friday.  Dex was asked to be one of the bloggers in FSSD's #BloggersTakeOver in-game segment and I was his trusty sidekick and platonic plus one.

Before the start of the journey I'd freely admitted to anyone who'd listen that I was a more than a little nervous about being on a bus for 6 hours due to my recent bout with sciatica.  Thankfully the ride turned out to be a really comfortable and entertaining.  I discovered early on that all my trepidations were for naught.  There was plenty of room to spread out, stand up and move about the cabin.

Immediately after our departure we were treated with a screening of all of FSSD's programming from the past year and all the gummy bears a normal human could eat.  I, however, ate 6 bags and wanted more, with my appetite for gummy snacks unsatisfiable.

Following the FSSD programming we watched the science-fiction thriller Moneyball.  That was a movie I had decided I'd be content if I never saw again, but surprisingly it was still decent on a second viewing.  We were deep in the Arizona desert before the TV's were mercifully shut off.

Left to our own devices, we tried to entertain ourselves.  We considered starting a sing-along and sing children's songs in rounds but for the life of me I couldn't remember the last line from The Wheels on the Bus. I kept wanting to finish with "All the livelong day!"

Dex suggested we compete against each other in a Padres alphabet game where we'd take turns naming a player who's last name started with each letter of the alphabet.  If we could name a player's name who's first and last were the same letter it was double points.  I started with Andy Ashby, scoring double.  Dex, I think, named Billy Bean.  I shot back with Calix Crabbe and then we promptly ran out of  alliterative names.  I think we made it to Joe Hamilton before we stopped for lunch at Chiptole in Yuma and ended the game.

I told Dex that once I had access to my computer that I'd try to generate a list of all alliterative Padres names.  Below you'll see the list of who I came up with.  Print this off and put in your wallet, just in case you go on a bitchin' road trip anytime soon.
