I ♥ San Diego!

Well. Let’s just say that the players were anxious to get back to San Diego, so they weren’t fully concentrated on the game. We lost to the Mariners 18-3. Yeah. Chris Young threw 3.2 innings and gave up nine runs on nine hits with four walks. Not very good, but of course he was thinking about getting back to his wife and daughter. Scott Hairston hit a homer, though.

Last night, some of the Padres played their Double-A team. The Missions came out on top 7-3. It was not the best game for the Padres, but Kouz had two hits!!

I don’t think I’m going to have the time to blog this weekend, which means that my next entry will be a report on the Fan Day! As you all know, I super excited along with Hyun Young and Jen. I am really excited about getting to go downtown.

SanDiegoSkyline_lg.jpgI am pretty much obsessed with downtown San Diego. I love just going anywhere near it. I love even going down the highway towards it! We went to a party in La Jolla last week, and we went part of the way that we go downtown. I was pretty excited! Kind of weird, I know. But I LOVE downtown!

I’m sure that the majority of my love for downtown San Diego is because of this:

petco ariel.jpgI LOVE PETCO PARK!!! That place is my favorite place to be. I absolutely love this ballpark. It’s so beautiful! And it’s in downtown San Diego. I live about 45 minutes from downtown, so I’m not used to all the buildings. But I love it! I love how crowded, how busy it is. I love the towering buildings.

I am so obsessed with downtown San Diego. Like I said, I love just going anywhere near it. And on Sunday, I have the extreme privilege of going to the place that I dream about: the gorgeous Petco Park. I haven’t been there in about seven months. I miss that place, and I am so excited that I get to go to Petco Park. It’s going to be so much fun just to be there! I’m going to take so many pictures it won’t be funny. Thankfully, I have room for 1000 pictures on my camera πŸ™‚

I was born in a hospital near downtown San Diego, so I think that’s where part of my extreme love and loyalty for the city comes. I loooooooove San Diego!!!!

san diego sunset.jpgThis is my home. This is where I was born, where my loyalties lie. I love San Diego! 

Tonight we are playing the Angels at Petco Park in the first of two games in the So-Cal exhibition games. I can’t believe we’re going to be in Petco!! Very exciting!!

GO PADRES!!!

    For a second there, I was like “Where is that gate?” Then I associated its location with the overhead picture before it, and I realized I’ve never walked through that gate. I come in closer to the scoreboard since I live in the Gaslamp. At Horton Plaza. πŸ™‚ I can’t wait. And then real baseball starts Monday! YAY!

    Great entry! I love living in San Diego area right now. (I live about 20 minutes from downtown) Even though I was not born there, it’s the only place I could honestly call ’cause it’s where all my good memories are from. That includes going to PETCO and watch our boys play πŸ™‚ And no matter where life takes me, San Diego will always be my one and only home.
    I LOVE those pictures and I would be seeing you at PETCO on Sunday!

    San Diego is a beautiful city. Nice pix. Do you have a section similar to the Dodgers Dugout Club at Petco? I was at Petco a few years ago and thought it was a very nice stadium. We even happened to be there on a giveaway night. How cool is that??

    Hey Kaybee, thanks for the birthday wish on Julia’s blog. I lived in LA (Pasadena, to be exact) for 5 years, going to seminary. Good Scripture verse there!
    I HATED LA (WAY too hot, WAY too $$$$$!), but I LOVED Sand Diego the one time I got to visit there! I am not a Padres fan, but I could live there ANY DAY! (Nice to know we have another fan who “likes” the Red Sox on the side!) πŸ˜‰ (I live in NC now–nowhere NEAR a team! If anyone here “roots” for a team, it is the Braves).
    Although I never have followed the Padres, I HIGHLY respected Tony Gwynn! Great tribute to him! I loved that he and Cal went into the HOF together!!! πŸ™‚
    Take care, and keep blogging! God Bless!
