THIS IS NOT A DRIL!

MLB: San Francisco Giants at San Diego Padres Jake Roth-USA TODAY Sports

A year and eight months ago, the Padres were one of only two teams left in Major League Baseball without a cycle. Now, thanks to Wil Myers, they have two.

I was sitting on my couch watching the game. Fox Sports San Diego, knowing that Myers was just a triple away from the cycle, played a video of Kemp's (which, coincidentally ended with the triple as well). I was about to go on Twitter to make a dumb joke about them jinxing it, but got distracted and never hit the send button. The next thing I knew, Myers had hit the ball in the outfield, out of any defenders' reach. I stood up and yelled, "NO WAY" followed by a string of profanities. As Wil rounded second and the ball was bobbled by the outfielder I just screamed and got down on my knees.

I cried.

I'm still a bit teary-eyed as I type this. This Padres team is SO MUCH FUN.
