LobShots’ ALS Ice Bucket Challenge…

YouTube Preview Image

Say what you want about the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, but before you judge too hard, just know that it’s raised millions for the ALS Association.

So, what’s the consensus? Think our buddy Mahon will respond? I don’t.


[thanks for the challenge, Eileen - thanks for the ice, Showman]

Ahhhh…. Vacation.


Hello, friends. That’s a photo from LobShots co-founder, Showman’s, bachelor party in Cabo. Showman’s got the white shades, I’ve got the late 80s Padres hat on. The last blog I posted was 2 days before that photo was taken. Feels weird not blogging in over two weeks. I kinda wondered if anybody would notice or care. Turns out I did get a handful of emails asking, “are you ok?” – “are you done blogging?” – “I’m worried about you” – things like that. Feels nice that you all noticed. Thanks. Granted, if you follow me on twitter, you were in the loop as I’d been updating my feed.

Anyway, amazing Cabowman bachelor party in Cabo, then when all the boys left, my wife flew down to meet me and we celebrated our 10-year anniversary for 4 days, just the two of us… no kids. Also amazing. We had dinner at this cool place called Flora Farms, and my wife was in celebrity heaven, as we ate right next to Liev Schreiber and Naomi Watts. Then we came back to San Diego for a few days, then we loaded the kiddos up in the mini-van and went to visit friends in Santa Cruz (Capitola actually) for a few days. Now we’re back in San Diego and it’s business as usual when Monday rolls around.

Anyway, I’m back. Thanks for reading. Go Pads. Go Bolts. xoxo.

What Happens When Someone With 3.41 MILLION Followers Retweets You?


Well, that’s cool. Rob Dyrdek retweeted me. (kinda) I guess he thought my little “Kawhi Leonard has big hands” joke was original. He’s got 3.41 MILLION followers. My @ mentions were blowing up yesterday afternoon. I went to check out how many followers I gained from this incredible exposure…

Any guesses?

My Two Favorite Comic Con Videos…


These are both from the 2013 San Diego Comic Con and I love them as much today as I did then. The first is from Dallas McLaughlin, a local comedic genius that also blogs here on LobShots from time to time.


So great. “I meant fantasy baseball.” The second is from local radio legend Chris Cantore.


Nothing better than walking up to the Zelda kid and calling him Peter Pan.

Love Comic Con. I hope I make it downtown for some people watching this weekend.

Did Young Randy Jones Look Like Jake Peavy?


I know the uniform side-by-side helps, but I think they kinda look alike. I posed that question last night on twitter, and Randy Jones himself responded to me in the best way ever. “No Way. Get your eyes checked Meat!” So great. Haha. Check out the exchange below. Pretty good. Love the crafty lefty.

Randy Jones once punched me on live TV, so this response is not shocking.

Bring back the brown.

The Lebron Redemption

A lot of people get annoyed by Caliendo. Whatever your thoughts, you can’t deny he’s incredible at his craft. This right here… this Lebron letter (as told to Lee Jenkins) narrated by Morgan Freeman… it’s perfect. Brilliant, even. I’d recommend minimizing your browser and just listening.

Chase Headley, Instant Yankees Legend


“Yeah, I’ve heard this is baseball’s biggest stage. It’s the fourteenth inning and you need a run to win the game? I mean, I was on the Padres this morning… got traded… packed… shaved… flew to the Big Apple… and showed up late the game, but here I am. Sure, I’ll get you that run. Get your gatorade ready.” – Chase Headley, probably.

What a stud. First ever walk-off Yankees victory that I loved every second of… so happy for Chase Headley. All baby-faced and adorable. That walk-off means that Yankees fans are guaranteed to love Chase… at least until tonight.


Like I said… instant legend.

San Diego Lost A Lot of Handsome Today…


Chase Headley traded to the Yankees. Larry English released by the Chargers. Neither is a surprise to San Diego sports fans. Best of luck to both of those handsome fellows. I don’t know much about Larry the person, but I know a lot about Chase. A really stand-up guy and I wish him all the success in the world. Great person.
