Nose Bleeds

The Angels are my team, but I'm a baseball fan, so I always enjoy taking in a Padre game. The Padres have actually ended up a lot better than I expected this season. With their new ownership, I think they really have the potential to improve. What I don't understand, is why San Diegans don't support them more. I understand the team is currently without a superstar, but two years ago they had Adrian Gonzalez, and lead the NL West for quite awhile before finishing 1 game out of the playoffs. Even then it was rare to see a sell out. Petco is a great stadium, and other than difficulty parking, the location is tough to beat. If you're into photography, the Padres are really photographer friendly, and the stadium has some great views. The cheapest tickets are $10 or less, and that gets you access to some great spots. Even if you're not a baseball fan, it's worth visiting for the photography and the views, and when the game is over, you're right there in the Gaslamp.
