  The San Diego Padres’ franchise has always had trouble when it comes to developing a sense of tradition and cultivating a winning philosophy.

Why Does Ron Fowler HATE the Color Brown?

January 28, 2017

In a stadium full of various sports fans, a San Diego Padres’ supporter wearing old-school brown merchandise will always stick out. But yet, seemingly every year, Padres management remakes the jerseys with a stale boring look. A once unique franchise now resembles that of dozens of professional sports teams with the blue and white color scheme. It’s not the color blue and white that is the issue, it’s the fact…

Would you Support the SoCal Chargers?

January 20, 2017

It comes as no surprise that the San Diego Chargers once again dropped the ball when it came to doing the right thing. The Chargers’ owner is a douche bag, we all know that. There is no debating that fact. There is no “family” feeling among Chargers fans and players, and the all-mighty dollar has always ruled since the Spanos family took over the team in 1984. Countless players were…
