Get Inside The Game

San Diego Padres Troll Level: 100

We’ve got to ‘give it up’ to the San Diego Padres, who executed our favorite rickroll of all time. Yesterday, while hosting the Boston Red Sox for a three-game series, the Padres did another round of the aptly titled, ‘Padres Kareoke.’ With it being the last game of the series, the Padres opted to let visiting and local Red Sox fans sing along to Neil Diamond’s ‘Sweet Caroline,’ a long-standing tradition at Fenway Park. But naturally, the fans weren’t going to be able to enjoy the song in its entirety. Right before the famous chorus hit, the Padres quickly switched things up and began playing, along with the music video, the iconic ‘Never Gonna Give You Up’ by Rick Astley. And it was PRICELESS.

While the Red Sox weren’t the only ones to be rickrolled this weekend, we have to say, this was one of our favorite rickrolls of all time. We already know our fan base has a solid sense of humor and would get a kick out of this – there’s no question about that. But what if the fans had the opportunity to rickroll their opponents in the FCFL? Would they want the opportunity to deploy a secret rickroll once during the season, at any given time? We’re going to go with a definite yes on that. If it’s something the fans truly want, let us know! Help us, help you troll your opponents! After all, the promises Rick Astley lists off in his song are essentially our promises to you. We will never:

  • Give you up
  • Let you down
  • Run around and desert you
  • Make you cry
  • Say goodbye
  • Tell a lie and hurt you
