Oh my god, it’s been 3 days and I still can’t believe it’s actually happening.
We did it.
After all these years; all the frustration, the petitions, the dismissals, the insults. We persevered, we kept fighting, we stayed positive, and we’re about to get what we’ve so passionately been asking for.
We did it. You did it. Congratulate yourselves.
I like the color brown for Padres uniforms. I like the “Bring Back The Brown” movement. It shows our commitment to Padres history and folklore. However, out of this vocal minority wanting to bring the Padres back to our roots, to our brown and yellow days, I feel just a tad off their beaten path. I like the navy blue too. I LOVED it when the Padres went to blue and orange in the 90s. I thought it looked so cool! But, in the last 15 years, our uniforms have transformed to bland, removing the orange all together and replacing it with “sand”. Then, back in 2011, they really embraced the boring navy and completely minimized the sand color to next to nothing but an outline. This was a mistake. You need a second color. You need an accent color. And, with the unveiling of the new 2016 All-Star logo, we now will have that accent color! Ladies and gentlemen…YELLOW IS BACK!
