We were in Salt Lake City Saturday and Sunday, Phoenix Sunday and today, and came in to San Diego this afternoon. I was getting used to the furnace blasts every time I went outside in Phoenix, so when I got off the airplane today, the mild temperatures in San Diego put me in an instant great mood. My mood really skyrocketed when I saw that our hotel was walking distance to Petco Park. One of the most beautiful things I've ever seen in my life:
Awesome. Simply awesome.
Of course, I almost wept when I saw this beautiful statue of one of my baseball idols, Tony Gwynn. I don't care how bad the Padres are. If I lived here, I would be at this work of art of a stadium every stinking game. The Lovely Wife and I are going to need to dump the kids off with babysitters and spend a few days here!
