Andy Warhol played tennis in San Diego?

Did famous artist Andy Warhol play tennis? Decades ago, did he visit San Diego’s Morley Field Sports Complex?

Check out these colorfully painted lockers at the Balboa Tennis Club!

You mean to say there’s no historical record of Warhol standing here with paintbrush in hand?

Well. at the very least, this fun art was inspired by him!

Big crashing waves at Crystal Pier!

Very high surf today, crashing into Crystal Pier in Pacific Beach. I wasn’t surprised that the end of the pier was closed.

And I wasn’t surprised that surfers were out this sunny Saturday in droves!

In the distance, near the end of the pier, the largest, most ominous waves formed. And ambitious surfers waited…

Fun photos at the Snapdragon Bowl Bash!

The Holiday Bowl block party in the Gaslamp Quarter (called the Snapdragon Bowl Bash) is happening this evening even as I post these photographs!

I walked down to the Gaslamp before the event officially began at 5 o’clock, and took a couple of easy laps up and down Fifth Avenue. As you can see, there were already lots of families and Oregon and North Carolina college football fans out and about, enjoying all sorts of fun activities!

Enjoy a glimpse of the big party!

Preparing for Holiday Bowl’s big Bash and Parade!

People were getting ready this morning in downtown San Diego for two upcoming Holiday Bowl events.

This evening’s “Snapdragon Bowl Bash” block party in the Gaslamp Quarter will feature a friendly Battle of the Bands. And tomorrow morning there’s the big Holiday Bowl Parade!

During my leisurely walk down Fifth Avenue and behind the San Diego Convention Center, I saw a few excited fans and people tasked with event preparation. Several floats were nearly ready at Embarcadero Marina Park South.

Two floats represent the Oregon Ducks and the North Carolina Tar Heels. They’re the teams playing in the 2022 Holiday Bowl. Petco Park will again be the unique venue, after last year’s disappointing cancellation of the game.

As I began to walk back toward the Gaslamp, a truck holding gigantic tubes of helium pulled up, presumably to fill the parade’s many character balloons. (I wonder how much the truck must weigh to not float away!) The Holiday Bowl Parade tomorrow morning will proceed down Harbor Drive past the convention center.

I’ll head back to the Gaslamp this evening for the Snapdragon Bowl Bash and the Battle of the Bands. I’ll try to take some fun photos!

USA battles England at the Rady Shell!

An epic battle was observed in San Diego today! A huge crowd gathered at the Rady Shell to watch USA battle England during the 2022 World Cup!

The free outdoor event, made possible by the San Diego Symphony and San Diego Loyal SC, was called Pride and Glory!

The soccer game (okay, football if you insist) had many exciting, nail-biting moments and near goals, but ended in a 0-0 draw. That didn’t keep the crowd from cheering, chanting USA USA and waving flags to the very end.

The family-friendly, festival-like event also included several of San Diego’s other professional sports teams, including the hockey Gulls, women’s soccer San Diego Wave FC and the rugby Legion. Kids were having a blast!

Enjoy these photographs that I took before and during the event.

Tomorrow Pride and Glory at the Rady Shell will continue as Mexico takes on Argentina at 11 am. Simply show up. It’s free!

Fun murals show active kids in National City!

I love these murals! I saw them during my recent walk in National City.

These very fun murals, showing happy active kids, can be seen outside the Manuel Portillo Casa de Salud Youth Center. How great are these?

Surfing big waves in Imperial Beach!

The waves were larger than usual off San Diego’s beaches today. I believe it had something to do with the hurricane in Mexico.

This morning I headed down to the Imperial Beach Pier to see what I might see.

I discovered a few surfers out attempting to conquer the curling, crashing breakers!

These surfing action photos were taken from the IB Pier…

Excitement fills San Diego during 2022 NLCS!

The games might be played inside Petco Park, but during the first two days of the 2022 National League Championship Series, plenty of excitement fills the streets of downtown San Diego!

Walking outside the ballpark, one feels the energy from thousands of enthusiastic Padres fans. Many families and generations are creating forever memories.

Baseball gloves are already on many hands, as fans hope to catch a ball during the NLCS.

I’ve never seen so many swag chains!

A few Philadelphia Phillies fans are out there too, but the Friar Faithful far outnumber them.

Enjoy these photographs that I took this morning!

Hopefully the Pads prevail in Game Two early this afternoon, before Major League Baseball’s National League Championship Series heads over to Philadelphia.

Padres fans go crazy outside Petco Park!

Minutes before the start of the 2022 National League Championship Series, Padres fans were going crazy outside Petco Park!

The rally goose seemed to appear from around every corner, as did the rallying cry LFGSD!

There were smiles, excited kids, clever signs, thumbs up, and people watching the pre-game broadcast and partying in every sports bar.

Let’s go Padres!

Let’s trounce the Philadelphia Phillies and win the pennant!

Joe Musgrove “It’s Our Time” mural!

The 2022 San Diego Padres are on a roll!

First our team eliminated the New York Mets from Major League Baseball’s playoffs, and last night the Pads did the same to the mighty Los Angeles Dodgers!

A new mural has popped up in San Diego, at the intersection of 7th Avenue and Island Avenue, depicting ace pitcher Joe Musgrove, who started the deciding games in the two postseason series so far. His red ears are a bad omen for would-be opponents. The street art states: “It’s Our Time!”

San Diego baseball fans are feeling it!

The cool spray paint art was created by Ground Floor Murals, who’ve produced great Padres murals all over the place! This particular mural was sponsored by the Downtown San Diego Partnership Clean & Safe program, and WestBrew, a brewery lurking behind that wall.

Next conquest . . . the Philadelphia Phillies in the National League Championship Series!
