This week I went to YouTube to check out this show called The Hog Watch after the Padres lost to the Nationals on Friday night. For most of this season I’ve been hearing mostly negative chatter about this program, but the chatter has been consistent. Hosted by Borna Nazari, The Hog Watch channel is a destination for Padres and LA Chargers recaps and analysis.
From what I saw the host is mostly one note. The Padres are bad and he signs on to scream about it. Is it my thing? No. I like shows where the hosts come on with a takes and work through them in an interesting way. This is more of a rant session show where viewers comment and the host plays off of that.
Even though I didn’t connect with Borna’s cartoonish performance style, it’s not hard to understand why his show has gained some traction. He’s channeling a rage that we are feeling in the wake of the Tatis suspension and recent struggles that feels like another promising season is slipping away. When he screams, “We should be nutting on these teams,” it’s not something I would say on air, but I understand the verve.
If you’re feeling powerless and want to connect with other Pads fans in a collective primal scream, this is something that might help you feel seen.

This week’s tweet comes to us from @Chancho_SD and it actually made me LOL. Like, for real:
Listen, I know the Padres won the last two, so we’re all excited and whatever, but that was a rouuuuuuugh fucking stretch, and just because my beloved Josh Bell got his swing back it doesn’t mean everything is rosy. After that second heartbreaking loss to the Nats where I think Josh Hader purposefully tried to make me break my TV, I think we were all feeling this perfectly put sentiment from Chancho. Until proven otherwise I will always be waiting to be let down.
