Memorial Day weekend. A beautiful spring night. Baseball. Padres. Win.

There is not a bad seat at Petco Park. The setting is intimate (as far as ballparks go) and the view of the cityscape is a bonus.
Last night was a packed house. With Padres coming into their 8th game after seven straight wins, it was promising to be a great game against the Cubs. And there were a lot of Cubs fans packed into Petco last night. But that did not deter the Pads fans.

And our guys did not let us down. Tony Gwynn Jr. was playing. His father is a San Diego Baseball Hometown Hero. My son, C and Little Tony played Little League together in Poway. They were 7 years old. Big Tony is such a down to earth, nice guy. He was right there at all the games and cheered his son on with all the rest of us parents. At the end of the season party, Big Tony gave all the boys an autographed ball. That was cool.

It was a good night. Great seats, peanuts, singing during the 7th inning stretch....take me out to the ballgame...and the Padres 8th win in a row. Yep, it was a good night.
