TheThinGwynn

From Gaslamp Ball Wiki - A Wiki for San Diego Padres Fans

TheThinGwynn has been into the Padres since 1988 when he was in the same kindergarten class as Andrew Kruk (who happened to be John Kruk's nephew). He, like many in San Diego, has been a depressed devotee ever since. His second love is music – a bit of everything: from Social D and Springsteen, Johnny Cash and the Clash, Bouncing Souls and Blitzkid, Descendents and Dio, Tech N9ne and Tiger Army, to Hank Sr. and the Hank the Third and nobody in between the two ...

His original incarnation was as "The Third Giles". He had followed Gaslamp Ball without signing up for some time before joining. One evening, he had just gotten out of the shower and was watching the Padres game wearing nothing more than a hat. His (then) wife came downstairs to get a midnight snack (East Coast time, mind you), took one look at him and asked "Who do you think you are, the third Giles or something?" With that, a legend was born. As we all know, Marcus Giles went the way of the buffalo and then the Padres picked up Adrian Gonzalez's brother, Edgar, so he became a new "TTG", "TheThirdGonzalez".

Notable Facts

  • He has a Gaslamp Ball Tattoo on his thigh. His thigh is so thin, many people mistake it for his arm.
  • Has a well-documented history of substance abuse, now under control. Once posted on GLB a picture of himself snorting an unspecified white powder that had been cut into the shape of the "SD" logo.
  • Missed most of the 2008 season "wandering the earth like Kane from Kung-Fu".
