It seemed like it would never come. We had planned a great vacation to San Diego for months, and it seemed so far off. After a busy start to the summer (buying a new house, running a mission trip, working, taking classes [Kim, not me]), it was finally the beginning of August.
You really can’t argue with the weather: sunny with a high of 75, every day. We covered about 800 miles in southern California, including a stop at Petco Park to see the Padres play. Tim Stauffer (UR ’03, we were in an intro music class together in college) started for the Padres that night, and it was the first time I had seen Tim pitch in person since the spring of ’03 out at Pitt Field. The bullpen couldn’t hold off the Braves, so Tim ended up with the L that night. This was one of his first pitches of the night:
