On this very special episode of Pads Pod, we speak to Kirk Kenney, sportswriter for the San Diego Union Tribune about his new book 100 Things Padres Fans Should Know & Do Before They Die. Kirk shares his favorite Tony memory, his thoughts on the current state of the Padres and discusses some fascinating tidbits of Padres lore from the book.
On the 25th episode of Pads Pod, Manny and Ryan discuss if a temporary boycott of the Padres would be an effective tool for showing fan dissatisfaction and improving the quality of the team. Then we get all philosophical on your asses, and discuss what the minimum requirements are to consider yourself a fan of a given team. We also boldly attempt to answer the question: “What is the Padres identity, and have they ever had one?” We even talk about that jabronie extraordinare, James Shields.
*At the beginning of the episode, Ryan refers to it as episode 26. He was incorrect. Like you give a shit.
