Time for Padres’ team nicknames to grow up.

Baseball 27 Jul 2010

Hey Padres fans, isn’t it time to stop using the terms “Little”, “Small”, and “Baby” in nicknames for the Padres? Isn’t it time for this organization to grow up, and sit at the big boys’ table?

These terms such as “Gritty, little Padres”, “Baby Padres”, etc. while intending to be endearing, to me only perpetuate the perception of being a second tier organization not to be taken seriously.

Time to come up with something new that tells the world that Padres players and their fans don’t view themselves as prepubescents that get patted on the head by the rest of the league, before being told to “Go way kid, you’re bothering me.”

Come on, Padre faithful, time to come up with nicknames that portend the brand of baseball you expect from now on out of your team – hard nosed, unrelenting, and unified in purpose to win a championship.

    Reacting and responding will keep your body from
    a plateau. Aping Schwarzenegger, well, not as the ‘Governator’ but as the ‘muscled machine’ has been a traditional phenomenon that has been in
    practice among the ‘bulk yearning’ youth of the past three decades.

    However, by early next morning, in most cases you will notice that your weight has considerably dropped compared to where it was the previous night.

    It does not care where you live, but it certainly does seem to thrive on the
    way you live. Sunlight on un-protected skin produces a highly usable form of Vitamin D that lasts twice as long in your bloodstream as when you consume it through food or a supplement, but
    you still need caution due to the risk of skin cancer.

    First of all, I want to point out that dieting and exercises are best methods for
    fat loss. Women should take half a serving, and men should take
    one serving, mixed in the recommended amounts of water.

    The main focus should be hands and feet (that is, arms and legs) and should be developed via endurance rather than strength, as
    it’s more important to work your muscles longer than harder.
    If you work out everyday and you aren’t seeing the desired results, you may need to consider your workout strategy.
    Creating a personal fitness plan is important for everybody who is looking to be healthy
    in their lives, whether you are a complete beginner, or an everyday gym rat, a fitness plan will be your success plan.

    for men and women to find a happy balance in the home, and consequently harmony between work and life demands.

    There is nothing worse for a women than to be made to feel as if she is obligated to you
    because you picked up a tab. This is a repetitive theme that
    became somewhat annoying at times.
