Oh no that's what got him? I still listen to the weekly replays and pretend like he's still with us. Their laughter is timeless

Perfect description. The fact his number is retired is a goddamn joke (to me at least.)

Poor Erlin. He's pitching better than this score, and he needed a confidence outing.

I totally get not caring for Frasier. It took me a while to acquire a taste for it.

I'd give anything for a show that comes close to that Sam/Diane dynamic in those first seasons. Any suggestions?

Grandal just never really delivered on his promise for us (which joins a long line of ex-Padres who went on to do well)

Only speaking for me, but I don't "hate" Kemp. Was kind of a salary drag but we've had others. Also he was kind of an out-of-shape burnout by the time he arrived. But he provided our first cycle so, for me, he'll always be a part of Padres history (but a minor one.)

I just did a watch of Cheers, followed immediately by a watch of Frasier. I was really young when Cheers was on the air so I remember Frasier being far superior. And while Frasier was amazing television, early Cheers was stunning to me now, especially in the writing.

But man, they lost me at Rebecca. Long Live Diane and Sam

The agent plot was NEVER good. It's why I stopped watching last year

...in which case I have no idea why I'm still here

It's because all of their problems were supposed to have been solved after signing two guys on their way out of the league

(And I like Cutch, too)

Just so you know, they're vouchers, so you will eventually need to go down to the ticket office to exchange them for the specific tickets you want. Still worth it to me, though
