In late January the San Diego Padres put out an opening casting call for a new announcer for all home games at Petco Park. Chad saw the announcement & his adventurous personality thought, 'Why not?'.
About 700 fans showed up & about 450 were able to make it into the park to read a 30 second script over the PA system in the park. Chad went extra early & was #45.
He sounded fantastic!
Unfortunately, the Padres didn't call. Fortunately, it was still a bucket list item check off the list.
We made a whole day out of being in downtown SD.
We visited Hodad's - a famous burger joint. Wouldn't you know it that our favorite Guy from Diners, Drive-Ins & Dives named it his #1 burger from the show?
Chad claims the Guido burger [Burger, Pastrami, Grilled Onions, Swiss]
was the best burger he's had.
We also visited Horton Plaza [our downtown San Diego mall] & Keller challenged Dad to a game of checkers on the giant Chess board. Unfortunately, Keller lost the challenge.
