tonoxtono is a lifelong Padres and Chargers fan. He also is an artist (though not yet professionally) who has lived in Santee for the last eight years. The first game that he attended was with his brother and grandfather in 1998, (can't remember who the Padres were playing against that day) however he got a really cool Padres baseball glove that he still has.
He joined Gaslamp Ball after a couple of months of checking it out and thinking how weird the people who posted and wrote on there were, but once he joined realized that was no better place to keep in contact with other Padres fans and no better way to watch a game and contribute in an open thread at the same time than at Gaslamp Ball.
He has a 1980s-era Padres throwback hat that has at least 11 signatures from various current and former Padres that were all acquired when tonoxtono attended a Padres Fan Fest at Petco Park. The hat was purchased at the first game tonoxtono attended at Petco Park, which happened to be the game where Jake Peavy pitched against the Baltimore Orioles in 2007.
