Welcome Home Kid

Friday, May 22nd, 2009

Last night a really cool thing happened in San Diego. Anthony Keith Gwynn returned and led the Padres to a 3-2 victory over the San Francisco Giants. No I didn't take a flying Delorian back to 1998, this time the Gwynn in question had a "Jr." appended to his name. Tony ...
