As reported here and a few other places, the San Diego Padres baseball team’s schedule for July 16th contained an intriguing item called “Comic-Con Night.” Which sounds promising. Sadly, it is just a mistake on the Padres schedule, according to SDCC spokesman David Glanzer.
Although the con and the Padres had been in talks for a joint event of some kind, it couldn’t be pulled together in time, said Glanzer. “It’s a shame because it would be a great idea; hopefully next year,” he told The Beat. So it will be a whole 12 months before the jock and the nerd come together in wondrous celebration of all they share.
