San Diego's baseball team. The Padres were notoriously bad intheir first decade of existnce, the 1970s, before winning their first NL pennant in 1984. After having an up-and-down 90s, the Padres appeared to be headed for a decade of failure by finishing last in the NL West from 2000-2003. However, the team turned things around in 2004, dumping the orange/blue color combination for a new, deep blue/tan combo. This switch was made to signify the organization's turnaround with their new ballpark, PETCO Park. The Padres did indeed play well in 2004, staying in playoff contention until September's final weeks.
The Padres were originally owned by Ray Kroc, the original owner of the McDonald's franchise, but won their first NL pennant after his death in January 1984.

San Diego Major League Baseball team. A team worshipped by all san diegans, even though they haven't been playing all that well lately.
Dude: Hey, are your friends from San Diego gonna come up to Vegas for your bachelor party?

Other Dude: Nah, there's a Padres' game this weekend.

Mexican slang for 'cool'. Anything can be padre; t-shirts, cars, actors, food, Antonio Banderas...

'Padre' is often used in common phrases such as "Que padre!" ("How cool!") or 'mas padre' ('very cool').

In Spanish, 'padre' literally translates to 'father' or 'parent'. And yes, 'su padre puede ser padre'.

Nobody seems to know why this is the word for cool.
Ay, chico, your car is really padre!
