When creating a Mount Rushmore for the Padres, coming up with a list of names is an easy task for me: Tony Gwynn, Trevor Hoffman, Randy Jones and the one and only San Diego Chicken. Based on their body of work and what they have done for the city of San Diego, it’s a no-brainer for me every time. Ted Giannoulas, aka The San Diego Chicken,  has been making fans laugh for 39 years now and is easily the most recognized mascot in history. From his early days as the KGB Chicken to the current semi-retired Chicken, he’s been a part of some amazing moments in history and has rubbed elbows (wings) with some elite people. We had the amazing honor of chatting with him this past weekend at Benchmark Brewing Co. for the latest episode of Padres and Pints. We talk about things ranging from what he would have become if he wasn’t the Chicken to if he was reincarnated what would he come back as, both answers may surprise you. He had the entire audience (and me) laughing out loud during the whole interview.
