Opening Day. A time for excitement over the upcoming season. A day of smells like hot dogs and leather and freshly cut grass. Every fan loves the experience of Opening Day.

I spent this Opening Day in a small room with three other guys watching the game on TV and making smart-ass comments about stuff.

The Kept Faith invited me and Padres Haiku to partake in an experiment of sorts. A podcast recorded at the same time as the Padres Opening Day game.

I have no idea how good or bad this is, as I haven’t listened to it yet. But we talked about things that happened in the game, opened some baseball cards, and drank a little. Enjoy?

You can download the podcast at The Kept Faith or listen to it below.

Chris joins guest Randy Gyorko for episode 32, brother of former Padre and current St. Louis Cardinals infielder Jedd Gyorko.

Randy shares his thoughts as a close family member of a major leaguer, as Jedd is drafted by the Padres and rises through the farm system. Randy also shares his feelings about learning Jedd was traded to the Cardinals, plus has a great story about hassling Chase Headley at a game in Pittsburgh, and his story of becoming a Padres fan from West Virginia.

Later, Rick of Padres and Pints: the Podcast! makes an appearance.

Back in December, at the Padres Social Summit, I met the guys from The Kept Faith. After helping to break up their fight with the Padres And Pints crew (by pointing out that no one from Gwynntelligence was even invited) we sat around talking about all sorts of stuff. A few days later, they asked me if I would come on the podcast as a guest.

Unfortunately, I came down with a really bad cold just a few days before I was supposed to record with them, so I had to take a rain check.

This week, that rain check came due.

We talk about our predictions for the Padres this year, the All-Star Game, how the O’Fowdler Group is doing as Padres owners, and the horrible movie from 1996, The Fan.

A few months ago, I was asked by Padres Jagoff of Gwynntelligence if I would be interested in doing a guest spot on one of their podcasts. I said, “Sure. Why not?”

Many weeks went by. Change the Padres moved to the East Coast. Padres Jagoff forgot about ever asking me. I forgot Padres Jagoff ever asked me.

Then, suddenly, we both remembered that he asked.

After some tense negotiations about who and what we would eventually talk about (re: nothing in particular), we finally recorded it.

Here, then, is that podcast. Over the course of about an hour of mindless chatter, we sum up our feelings on the Padres 2015 season in general, the changes to the radio and television broadcasts for 2016, the state of the Padres blogosphere & Padres twitter, and whether or not the McRib is actually just an unnatural way of cleaning out your digestive tract on an annual basis.
