Spent most of my life on the east coast, but grew up a Padres & Chargers fan. Since I can remember becoming a sports fan (circa 1983), I have chosen to root for the teams representing America's Finest City, much to the disdain of my ill-informed and unappreciative east coast homies.
I am a Navy brat (who later enlisted) and we lived all over - Guam, Hawaii, San Diego, Virginia. San Diego was the only place we lived in with pro sports franchises. Two of my sisters were born there. So, despite only spending 5 years of my life in San Diego, that is where my sports allegiance lies.

Love collecting sports cards as well. My collection consists mainly of - you guessed it - Padres and Chargers cards.

And on Monday, just days removed from his sophomore year of high school, Cody gave a verbal commitment to Virginia...

Others whose options were declined included Atlanta outfielder Nate McLouth; Colorado right-hander Aaron Cook; and the San Diego trio of right-handers Aaron Harang and Chad Qualls, and outfielder Brad Hawpe. Harang declined his $5 million player option but does not get a $500,000 buyout because he fell 14 1-3 innings short of the 185 specified in his contract. San Diego declined a $6 million option on Qualls, who gets a $1.05 million buyout. via ESPN
