Haaaaaaappy Opening Day!

March 31st, 2008 by Melvin

I cannot wait! The 2008 seaons brings so much to look forward to, I’m blown away.

Our opening day starter pitched better than anyone in the world last year.  The core group of Adrian Gonzalez, Khalil Greene, Kevin Kouzmanoff, and Chris Young are also household names. They’re healthy, in the prime ages of their lives, and are an absolute thrill to watch. Chase Headley is a stud and will likely be ready to roll by June, while prospect Matt Antonelli is putting the final touches on his game before prime time.

That’s a helluva crew of young people who are really good at being baseball players. Our gorgeous ballpark is a fun place to kick it, with enough to keep everybody entertained both before and after the game.

On top of that, this year I’ll have the opportunity to watch more action at Petco than I’ve ever had the pleasure. The Sacrifice Bunt is in full force and I am stoked.

To celebrate this momentous occasion of awesome, I’d like to share a couple of desktop wallpapers from my portfolio. If you want to share, please do, but I’d prefer you link to this post rather than directly to the image.  I put a lot of work into them. Thanks!

    That’s a sweet wallpaper of Adrian. Nice.
    He got robbed of the 3-RBIs by Bourn last night. Still, Adrian swing the stick good.

    Thanks Didi, Bryan. I get to see a ton more games this year than in the past. Maybe we’ll dedicate this blog to the ushers the way GLB loves their Pad Squad. What do you think?
