Honestly, I would root for the San Diego Raiders before I would root for the Los Angeles Chargers. Can you hear the theme song play, “San Diego, Super Raiders!” or hear former Governor Schwarzenegger proclaim, “Go! Raiders Go!”
Last night was a terrific evening for San Diego Chargers fans. It was even better for me, as I got to see one of my favorite players, Darren Sproles, break out for 328 all-purpose yards. At 5’6″ tall, the same height as me, Sproles made play after play throughout the game. He atoned for his … Continue reading 5'6" Darren Sproles Leads the Chargers Over the Colts!
What a horrible officiating today during the Chargers-Broncos game in Denver. A fumble that shouldn’t have been a fumble in the first quarter. A fumble that was inadvertently ruled an incompletion gave Broncos the life they needed to win the game. Ed Hoculi; I used to think you were a good red, but today, you … Continue reading Chargers win 38-24. Refs Rule Otherwise. Broncos Win 39-38
Ah, the football gods have smiled, and the world is happy once again. 19-0? Don’t count your chickens before they hatch. All season long, Rae has been railing against the Patriots, telling me that karma will come back and bite them. In the game that they absolutely could not lose, they lost; once again, karma … Continue reading Karmic Retribution, 19-uh-oh
Up until now, I had only heard about what the Patriots did at San Diego in last year’s Divisional Playoff Game. Now, I’ve seen what they’ve done, and I understand why some of the Chargers felt disrespected by the Patriots. If you’re a Chargers fan, this video will get your blood boiling for Sunday’s AFC … Continue reading Bad Blood Between the Chargers and Patriots
Back in Week 2 of the 2007-2008 NFL Season, the Patriots embarassed the Chargers at Foxborough. With our win over the Colts today in the AFC Divisional Round, the rematch is set. I was very skeptical of the changes made this year to the Chargers, but they have made me a believer with their resilience … Continue reading The Rematch Charger Fans Have Been Waiting For
That was the sorriest display by the Chargers since the 2003 season when they went 4-12. Unlike previous years, the Chargers looked unprepared and out-of-sync throughout the entire game. If this is an indication of how the rest of the season will play out, I’m scared. Let’s hope that the team can get on track … Continue reading Sorry Display by the Chargers
I’ve expressed some doubts about the new Chargers’ uniforms, but I will say the blue home outfits do look nice in this Nike commercial featuring LaDainian Tomlinson. I’m more worried about the away white uniforms. I still don’t like how the shoulder bolt looks skinny (being blue, powder blue, and yellow). But as long as … Continue reading Nike LT Commercial
Nearly a week after screenshots of the new uniforms were leaked, the Chargers held a fashion show at the U.S. Grant Hotel in Downtown San Diego to showcase the new duds. There are three new uniforms: a navy blue home, a white away, and a home alternate powder-blue uniform. Changes in the new outfits over … Continue reading New Chargers Uniforms Announced
Update: My thoughts on the fashion show are here. There’s always excitement when you hear that your favorite team is going to be changing their uniforms. Sometimes, it turns out for the better, as in the case of the Jets and Falcons. Most of the time, however, the new change looks like it came straight … Continue reading New Chargers Uniform?
