March 19, 2017

                                                                       Credit: San Diego Reader   For two years, the fans of the San Diego Chargers had to endure the tyranny of the NFL and owner Dean Spanos. Was the future of the team in L.A….


“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. This notification on my phone was the end all, be all, of painful Chargers’ notifications from 2015-2017. The conversation I was presently having with…


Philip Rivers: A True San Diegan

February 9, 2017

The first round of the 2004 NFL Draft was one to forget for San Diego sports fans. Prior to the draft, and after being ordered by his daddy, Eli Manning decided that he would not play for the San Diego Chargers even if they drafted him. The Chargers did what the Chargers do, and chose to draft Eli anyway. Eli stood at the podium, looking like an upset seven-year-old who…


The 2016 NFL Season is Over & Sadly the Sport is Dead to Me

February 6, 2017

In a really sad reminder of the life we live in, the San Diego Chargers left town for the seemingly brighter pastures of Los Angeles. The almighty dollar rules all, and there is no sense of loyalty or commitment in our current society. The San Diego Chargers were my team. Half of my professional sports fandom was devoted to them, and being that I am a native San Diegan, there…


Phil Mickelson Insults San Diego Charger Fans

January 28, 2017

Although Phil Mickelson is one of the most beloved athletes in San Diego history, he was caught up in some bad press last week at the CareerBuilder Challenge in La Quinta, California. When asked about the Chargers recent relocation to Los Angeles, Mickelson said he wished “the people in San Diego loved them the way I do and fought a little harder to keep them… What’s disappointing to me is…


Chargers Fans Bickering Over Allegiance to Team is a Sad Thing

January 24, 2017

In the past week there has been a common theme on social media. Chargers fans that are sticking with the team are calling out those that have cut their losses and vice versa, those that have shunned the Chargers are calling out those that have chosen to support the players and the team in 2017 and beyond. Look, the whole situation is a complete mess. We have one person to…


Would you Support the SoCal Chargers?

January 20, 2017

It comes as no surprise that the San Diego Chargers once again dropped the ball when it came to doing the right thing. The Chargers’ owner is a douche bag, we all know that. There is no debating that fact. There is no “family” feeling among Chargers fans and players, and the all-mighty dollar has always ruled since the Spanos family took over the team in 1984. Countless players were…


My Top 10 Moments in San Diego Chargers History

January 18, 2017

  The Chargers have begun the process of moving north to Los Angeles, and that is a horrible thing. It’s tough to think about, but let’s take a look back on the place the Chargers have called home for the last 50 years. The “Q”, the “Murph”, or whatever name you call Qualcomm Stadium, it immediately brings back a flood of memories, good and bad, that happened in our concrete…


Life After The Chargers

January 16, 2017

It’s been roughly four days since our beloved football team announced that they were heading up the I-5 North to Los Angeles. The reports in early January from many football insiders gave me hope that the Chargers were staying put. Then, with one tweet from Adam Schefter, everything had changed. Initially, I was heartbroken. Many of my close friends and family members were heartbroken. The San Diego Chargers were always…


The Chargers ARE Dead to Me

January 15, 2017

  It is said that a writer should never write while feeling emotional. It’s been over 24 hours since the Chargers announced they were leaving San Diego and making the trip up Interstate-5 for Los Angeles. I said I would put my thoughts into a written piece about yesterday’s events. I spent the day reflecting on what had happened, and looking back on all the years I’ve spent supporting the…


Four Quarters & The Hail Mary That Wasn’t

January 15, 2017

  It is a beautiful day here at Balboa Stadium. The sun gleams off the faces of locals, interested to see what this new franchise here in America’s Finest City has to offer. As head coach and general manager Sid Gillman leads his team onto the field, fans stand and cheer, aroused by the anticipation of this so-called “American Football League.” Finally, it’s time for kickoff. It’s a decent return…


There Is No Longer A “Next Year” for This Former Chargers Fan

January 14, 2017

  It was September 1978. I was turning 11 and starting 6th grade. As my grandmother and I came out of the grocery store one day, we passed by those little machines full of gum, candy, and various trinkets. Although I had always liked them, and never failed to miss an opportunity to beg a penny off her for a gumball, or a dime for a handful of Boston Baked…
