The San Diego Padres are off to the NLCS for the first time since 1998, and there are some pretty cringy celebrations as a result.
The San Diego Padres are off to the NLCS for the first time since 1998. It’s undeniably an exciting feat for the underdogs, but there are some pretty cringy celebrations happening. A hype song recently surfaced of a group of men in Padres jerseys singing about their upcoming matchup against the Phils.
The song began with, “Philly’s going down to yellow and brown.” The men then continue with, “Padres on the loose, let’s go goose,” in reference to the ‘good luck’ goose on the field in the NLDS. The song is admittedly pretty creative and confirms that San Diego fans are a unique group of people.
To make things even worse, KUSI-TV of San Diego aired the video during their broadcast.
To be fair, many Padres fans do not claim this as their official hype song. If anything, it’s the opposite.
Twitter reactions to the Padres newest hype song
The song definitely isn’t as exciting as the men probably hoped for it to be, but it has garnered some of the best reactions on Twitter which is always a win for MLB fans.
Should the men be allowed at Petco Park with the possibility of them breaking into song and forcing the poor crowd to witness such a performance? One fan says no, “Everyone here should be banned from Petco Park for life for this atrocity.”
Another spoke what we’re all thinking and Tweeted, “Nobody involved with this thought ‘maybe we shouldn’t post this?'”
One felt the need to apologize on the Dodgers behalf for allowing the Padres into the NLCS. He wrote, “As someone indirectly associated with the Dodgers organization i would like to apologize to the entire world for being the reason this video exists.”
Another reiterated the idea and simply wrote, “I will never recover from the Dodgers losing to… this.”
The hype song certainly isn’t one of the finer things in life.
