Go figure San Diego — by the numbers
8 — The number of seasons that Will Venable played for the San Diego Padres, making him the longest tenured player on the team. Until he was traded, that is. He's now a Texas Ranger. He's also a Princeton grad, so the Padres just got a bit dumber.
4 — The number of men who recently parachuted off the Coronado Bridge, including one who's in the Navy.
250 — The feet from the bridge to the water.
0 — Injuries.
4 — Miracles.
107 — The high temperature in Campo on Sunday, Aug. 16, breaking the old record by one degree.
53 — The number of years the previous high stood.
0 — We're guessing the number of people in Campo who no longer doubt climate change.
12,000 — The number of steaks served to Navy personnel on three carriers stationed in San Diego. The Bakersfield-based organization, Cooks from the Valley, grilled the steaks. They do so for U.S. military personnel throughout the world.
130,000 — The number of steaks they've served since Sept. 11.
130,000 — The number of grateful service personnel.
