Everybody head east immediately! The ocean’s gonna freeze!
The best part of this screengrab is not the typo, it’s the tagline: “San Diego’s most accurate forecast” – nailed it.
I racked my brain for at least 15 seconds for a “Did I catch a ‘niner’ in there? Were you calling from a walkie-talkie?” joke… but I couldn’t find it. That’s on me.

I have no clue what he talked about or how it went… I’m just glad to see my boy Mahon back in action!
[thanks for the grab, Erock]
I only posted this because it features my favorite move in the history of bro moves… the backpedal while simultaneously flashing the “come at me, bro” hands. “Come at me! … as I run away like a coward... ” – it’s the best.
Worst part about this? This punk will be a hero in IV this weekend.
Even ESPN makes mistakes, kids.
Kidding aside, sucks about Maybin. Kinda surprised he’s not gonna get surgery, but what the eff do I know about bicep tears? Nothing. Good talk, Russ.
Work out much this off season, Bryce? Look at those cannons.
p.s. I see you, Thin Mints.

Picnic table power! Love it. Gotta admit… I’m very impressed with the Padres Vine game. They’re killing it. They’ve been posting their mini-videos to the official team twitter feed. Yesterday, the Padres were able to grab a Vine of two home runs… the first was Carlos Quentin’s first AB of the season… a jack.
Shortly after… they were able to grab a home run from Yonder Alonso. Two for two!
If you’ve never used the Vine App, you don’t know how impressive that is. You only have one chance. You have to hold your finger down while the app records whatever you’re pointing at. When you let go, it stops, and when you press down again, it starts back up. So if you miss it live… there’s no going back to fix it. Once you’ve filled up about 6 seconds, you’re done. So how did the Padres capture those two jacks? Are they recording every freaking swing, and only posting the ones that are home runs? I went ahead and asked yesterday.
I got an answer, and I’ve screengrabbed them below from the Padres Director of Communications, Dave Holtzman, and the Padres Communications Assistant, Patrick Kurish, who is the man behind the Vines.
Dr. Vine, indeed.
People in the background are laughing at the people running at the end… but those people sprinting away are the smartest kids in the crowd.
That’s funny…. and no, I’m not disrespecting real tragedies that deserve real prayers… I’m simply mocking San Diegans and our ability to handle weather that’s not perfect.
