Now it’s time to select the Most Padres Moment of 2013.*
What is that supposed to mean? I’ll tell you.
Over the course of the last couple of seasons, some of us have used the #ThatsSoPadres on Twitter. Usually when something stupid happens to or involving the Padres. Sometimes they’re good. Many times they’re just depressing and sad. Like losing Game 163 when Matt Holliday never touched home plate. Or 1997 when Andy Ashby lost a chance for a no-hitter in the ninth.

September 16 in Pittsburgh. I missed this game live because I was having dinner at a relative’s house and they don’t have cable or satellite. So I had to catch the replay.
What did the Padres do this season to make you say “That’s so Padres”? Go ahead and tell me how much I suck in the comments for not including it in the poll.

I don’t want to oversell it, but it’s going to be bigger than 10 Super Bowls!
