Throwback

*Picture from the Boston Globe*

On a night when the Padres celebrated the 80's, the Padre's won the award for ugliest uniforms EVER while the Red Sox won the game.

Seriously, whoever came up with that brown, orange, and yellow color scheme of the old Padres uniforms was either dropping acid or eating 'shrooms: those things are HIDEOUS. Meanwhile, because of it being "Throwback Night", I had to sit there looking at the Sox wear the uniform just like the '86 team wore: thanks for the memories, San Diego.

I thought it was gonna be over before it started: Daisuke walked the bases loaded with nobody out in the bottom of the first, but somehow escaped with giving up only one run. The Sox scratched out 2 on 4 singles in the 4th, and that's how it ended: 2-1 Red Sox.

Fittingly, on "Throwback Night", Papelon closed it out in the 9th for save #17: this cat would have been right at home pitching in the era of Gibson, Koufax, and Drysdale as much as he is in 2007. Old school all the way, right down to the stare he gives before throwing each pitch.

Shockingly, his reaction in this picture after getting the save last night looks a lot like mine when it happened: fist swinging and yelling like a maniac.

Somehow, I don't think the crowd at Petco Park was as upset with his reaction as Angie was at mine.

After all, it WAS 1:30 a.m.

All I know is this: ain't no way I will EVER blog as much as you, so I may as well shut down the Perch.

KAYLEE said...

Ted D said...

Little brother: you are going by the "quality over quantity" rule.

As you can tell, I threw that one out of my rulebook.

Carol said...

Yipes, I just checked it myself. Jr won't be in a good mood.

Kaylee just let it go it's a sickness, you say something back and I will comeback with one quicker, once it starts Im not responsible for what happens.

Ted D said...

Jr has behind the couch: not good Bubba. 6-0 Padres, or Friars as the obnoxious Padres announcers I'm forced to listen to like to say.

Ted D said...

Jr *has* been behind the couch.

One of those games: though the Mother's Day miracle is still fresh in my mind.

KAYLEE said...

OK,SCOTT I will for tonight.

KAYLEE said...

I WANT A WIN TOMORROW:-)

John said...

I made it to the 6th or so most nights..it was easy to give up Sat. night

Carol said...

Yes it was John - Though the only consolation last night was that they didn't get shut-out!

Ted D said...

John and Carol: stayed up til the bitter end, and I'm paying the price right now. Going to try to catch a quick nap before this afternoons game.

Hope you both are having a great Sunday.

Carol said...

Hi Ted - Hope that nap helped! We went to a Strawberry Festival this afternoon, and I was able to make it back around 5:30 and see the Sox win today!

KAYLEE said...

Yummy Carol.I need strawberries now and my heart medication would help too.:)

Ted D said...

Carol, the nap lasted all of minutes: baby woke up and Ang was sleeping, so there you go.

Sounds like you all had a fun day: I'm just trying to hold on with my fingertips to my sanity.
