RickeyFan goes to Petco

So last week I was on vacation down in San Diego, so I figured it'd be great to watch my first every baseball game at a non-Bay Area ballpark.  And I took pictures, because I'm jealous of the Pads shiny newish park.

We bought 'lawn section' tickets, which is basically a large patch of lawn out beyond center and right fields.  It's a great place to chill out on a blanket and have a picnic and watch the game.  Here's a couple pics of the view from that section

The bleacher section is separated from the lawn by a walkway ... you can see the Omni Hotel behind the left field line.  Apparently the top floors are condos.  Must be a nice deal, buy a condo, get to watch Padres games.

These great flat panels and mini scoreboards were everywhere around the stadium.

Speaking of scoreboards, we won that day ... and the Angels would eventually lose.

What's great about Petco is the way the stands are constructed, there are a lot of open spots on the walkway behind field level to watch the game (unlike the Mac which has the green fencing around most of its walkway).

Kicking myself for not catching video of his intro with Hell's Bells, but here's a shot of 'Trevor Time'

There's also a cool exhibit in the park of the area historically
