Padre fans: With a new owner taking charge here in San Diego, I think it's time for the team to look like themselves again.

The last 20 years have seen the Padres adopt the Mets' color scheme, the Dodgers' color scheme—so much so that the Pads had to wear their blue tops when the Dodgers came to town—and now the Brewers' color scheme.

Personally, I am sick of not being able to tell San Diego from Milwaukee at a glance.

Love or hate the Padres original colors, one can't say they weren't unique. The brown and gold was distinctive, and I refuse to believe that a tasteful combination of those colors cannot work.

Marketers convinced the Padres that "sand and sea" was the way to go, but the current uniforms are dull. The previous combo needs to make a comeback, and I will bet that I am not alone in this thinking.

Feel free to post your opinions, Padre faithful. After all, we finally got the Chargers to go back their throwbacks, maybe we can do the same for the Pads!
