Tweet of the Week

by Dallas “SEZ ME” McLaughlin

This week’s tweet is a little different. I didn’t select it cause it was good. I selected it cause it was stupid. By now, most of us have seen it, so here it is by @thehogwatch one of the worst takes in San Diego sports history:

Listen, I know this guy has been making a weird reputation for himself, and that’s…a choice, but this tweet right here is honestly just fucking stupid. It reeks of Canepa, and at best is trying to be Dave Palet. Honestly, I’d rather this kid just post a dick pic and be done with it.

Let me break it down a smidge — this kid is bummed that a professional soccer team sold out a stadium that was built for a team that can not, and probably never will, sell it out on their own. He’s claiming here that because the only team that could sell it out so far is a soccer team, and that that team is also a woman’s team, it somehow means the city is in trouble when it comes to sports. It’s not only sexist, it’s misogynist and weird.

First off, how in any way does a sold out stadium for a local team mean the city is in trouble? The only thing it really shows is that SDSU has an inferior product. It shows that the city let SDSU buy its way into the ballot box and turn the land into a personal participation trophy rather than share it with a sport and a team this city would actually give a shit about. If that was somehow HOGWATCH’s take then…sure. But, that still wouldn’t mean the city is in trouble. If anything it means SDSU will see this and find a way to line their pockets with more soccer game revenue.

Secondly, I do wonder if he would’ve made the same comment if Landon Donovan was running his ass out there on the pitch. I’m gonna bet not.

HOGWATCH looked at this scenario, and decided the city was in trouble because a female sport was top dog for a fucking day. HOGWATCH can’t handle that.

Really the only thing that has San Diego sports in trouble are people like HOGWATCH. He claims to be some bastion of San Diego sports, a truth teller and voice for the city we can all rally behind, but the kid is still a Chargers fan. I legit almost laughed out loud when I read this tweet, clicked on his bio, and saw he hosts the #1 YouTube show about the Padres AND Chargers.

Just an incredible dipshit.

Sorry, HOGWATCH, you don’t get to shit all over a local team that is actually selling out games IN San Diego and willingly PLAYS in San Diego while also devoting a shit ton of your time jerking off to Dean Spanos.

Sorry, HOGWATCH, you’re a part time San Diego fan, and a part-time Los Angeles fan. You don’t get to talk shit about successes in San Diego when you support whole-heartedly one of the biggest failures in this city’s sports history.

I know he came out and apologized and released a video. I don’t care if it was honest or not. I’m betting it wasn’t. His replies in this initial tweet just shows him doubling and tripling down on his sexist shit. So, I don’t really believe he released an apology for any other reason than to not lose followers. I’m sure he thought the old media guard would come to his rescue or the army of Coach Kentera listeners would come to his defense.

But, they didn’t. Very few did. So, he apologized. I’m glad he did. I really am. Regardless if it was honest or not. It does take a big man to apologize for anything on social media because people won’t like it no matter what you say. But, he did. But, he also…never deleted this original tweet.

I guess that tells us all we need to know. Maybe he’ll talk shit to me once he reads this. I’m certainly not holding back. But, to reference his apology video – I wasn’t offended. Not at all. I was perplexed. Confused. Worried. And, then content knowing that this was the first and last time I’d ever have to look at his feed.

Friars #NoFilter

Very early in the season Craig Stammen told us he was going out for cigarettes. Now that the Padres are doing well and hopefully heading to the playoffs, he’s come crawling out of the woodwork to pitch in relief and get his annual Clemente award nomination. Let’s check out the Instagram of a guy they call Dad.

Here’s Craig taking some fake swings for a goofy baseball card. Craig is 37 years old and has the Benjamin Button disease.

If there’s one thing in this world Stammen hates, it’s getting his kids to school late. If there’s a second thing, it’s terrorism. Pitchers are just like us.

Here’s Craig winning an award for cutting the crusts of sandwiches.

Woah there Craig, save some fun for the rest of us.

Putting a Tony Dungy book in a charity gift basket is the ultimate dad move.

Honestly, Craig’s IG page is pretty boring. Just pictures of his kids, of him playing golf, and of him pitching in the major leagues, it’s just like mine except I don’t play golf and I’m not a major league pitcher (yet). Go follow Dad on IG.
