God help me, I'm a life-long Padre fan
I am a life-long Padres fan, having lived in Ocean Beach in the mid- to late-70s. I was a San Diego resident when Randy Jones won his Cy Young, Butch Metzger won the National League Rookie Pitcher of the Year, the Padres hosted the All-Star Game and announcer Jerry Coleman took a turn at the Padres helm.
Cut me, and I'll bleed brown and gold.
I collect everything Padres - Sports Cards, Media Guides, programs, memorabilia, you name it, I collect it. Bottom line, if it deals with the Padres, I want it. I have plenty of doubles, including lots of Tony Gwynn, so I'm definiely interested in trading.
While, I now live in Iowa, I still religiously follow my Padres. A Public Affairs Specialist for the Iowa National Guard, I still make the occassional trip to San Diego to visit friends and to catch the odd Padres game.
Check in every now and then as I continue in my pursuit of life, liberty and the San Diego Padres. I think you'll enjoy the ride.
See you then!
