It’s only 14 days until Opening Day, and I can’t wait!!!
Tonight’s game against the Rangers made me really excited for the season to start, because I can’t wait to see how we do.
We won 15-5, which always makes me happy. I love it when we have big blowout games like that. I mean, you can tell that it’s going to be a good game when you score your first 12 runs within the first three innings. Yeah. That definitely gives you a good feel for how the game is going to go.
We are opening the 2011 season two weeks from tonight. Two weeks!!!!! Do you have any idea how long I’ve been waiting for this?? Man, last October feels like forever ago!! Finally, we’re going to get back into Padres baseball.
We’ve got a lot to prove this year. I don’t think that people believe in us, even after what we did last year. I guess we weren’t good enough, but compared to what we were in the years past, last year was amazing. I just don’t get it.
Hopefully Padres fever will catch this city again. We’ve got the Best Aztecs Team Ever (GO AZTECS!!!) playing right now, and man, I hope they go all the way. That would fire up this city like nothing else. I think this is exactly what San Diego needs. We need to get fired up about our sports, and if we can get fired up about the Aztecs, I know that we can get fired up about the Padres.
I can’t wait to see how my boys do. Every team has a blank slate at the beginning of the season. Every team has an equal chance. It’s going to be such a good season. I CAN’T WAIT!!!!!!!!!
This is kind of random, but I wanted to put out a quick plug for The Telescope, Palomar College’s student-run newspaper, which I am working on. There’s all sorts of sweet stuff on the website, but especially check out the Watercooler, which is our Palomar sports blog. There is some great stuff there, including the exploits of a certain sports editor competing against a certain women’s track and field team. Keep an eye out for that video, you are not going to want to miss it.
