With NBC 7 San Diego's Darnay Tripp and Derek Togerson behind the mic, On Friar will cover all things San Diego Padres. Interviews, analysis, behind the scenes...the ups, downs, and everything in between.


Expectations for Spring Training 2.0; Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest and Competitive Eating with Crazy Legs Conti

With the Padres back at Petco Park, Derek and Darnay discuss their expectations for Spring Training 2.0 (3:46). They discuss some changes made because of coronavirus, how the team could adjust to a new-look season, what players could play an important role, and some lingering concerns. Then Darnay checks in with Padres beat writer AJ Cassavell about the team's player pool, and what we learned when the club released its list (24:59). Derek and Darnay continue their chat about players to watch, roster management, and questions they have heading into camp (37:02). Then Todd Strain takes over for a chat with competitive eater Crazy Legs Conti (57:25). They talk about the Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest, legends like Joey Chestnut and Takeru Kobayashi, and Conti's experiences as a professional eater.
