“Long Distance Relationship”

February 10, 2017

  On January 11th, 2017 my sports world was forever changed. I stood outside of a Vons shopping center near my home, looking at my eventual new car. It felt like maybe five minutes transpired… then it happened. The Chargers announce they’re moving to Los Angeles.
