Trevor Hoffman Day (Retiring #51)

The Padres season as a whole has been a disaster and sucked big time this year, but today the organization did themselves proud in the way they retired Trevor Hoffman's number (#51). It was awesome from start to finish. About an hour overall. The best part of course was when they brought out former Padre players. Some were expected and some were totally surprising to see: Chris Young and Steve Finley.

But when they trotted out the other 4 Padre players (Tony Gwynn, Dave Winfield, Randy Jones and Steve Garvey in their respective Jersey's) who's numbers were already retired, from center field as they walked toward Trevor, it was hair-raising goodness. Another what the f*uck moment was when they showed former players, coaches and the commisioner on the Jumbo Tron congratulating Trevor on this special day, the best was getting a shout out from Brian Johnson of AC/DC. Waaaaaaaaay cool. Even Trevor was completely shocked at this, as everyone else was in Petco Park.

The organization then gave Trevor a Mint condition 1953 Cadillac convertible. That was dope. But the best part of the entire ceremony was when they played a video of his Father, Ed, singing the National Anthem at a Red Sox/White Sox game on opening day back in 1981 up on the Jumbo Tron. Chills.
