If You are Pissed at LT, You Aren’t the Only One

March 1, 2017

Let me first start of by saying that LaDainian Tomlinson is one of my favorite all-time San Diego Chargers in the franchises’ history. He exemplified what it meant to be a Chargers’ player, and he will never be questioned for his endless contributions on the field for my former beloved football team. However, that team is gone. They left town. Which makes them dead to me. Their new name, which I…

Jordan Beane Interview “Seeking Fulfillment”

February 10, 2017

The Chargers leaving the city of San Diego is going to have lasting effects on many of its citizens. Of course, the fan base lost the team they supported for 56 years, but there were many families that were directly effected, as they were employed by the Chargers in some capacity. Some of those employees have been with the team for decades. The move is not an easy thing to…

“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…

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…

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…

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

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…

A Mike McCoy Eulogy for the Former Chargers’ Head Coach

January 3, 2017

The San Diego Chargers find themselves searching for a new head coach after another dismal season. This team had the talent to make a playoff run and even a run at the division. The AFC West was one of the toughest divisions in the NFL this season. Instead, the Chargers finished in last place with a 5-11 record, four games behind the third place Denver Broncos (9-7). The team under-performed….

Dear Dean Spanos: Just Leave Already (You, NOT the Team)

December 30, 2016

It has become more and more apparent that the San Diego Chargers will never succeed with Dean Spanos at the helm. The man has no respect for the city of San Diego, nor its fan base, and that will never change. Being that he is an NFL owner, you have to take a certain amount of caution ingesting anything that comes out of his mouth when it comes to his…

Chargers 2016 Season “From Staying Alive to Flat-lined at 5-9”

December 20, 2016

My beloved San Diego Chargers have blown fourth quarter leads ad nauseam in 2016. I still chose to look past all the negative talk, and on-field trends. After beating Houston, winning out was the only likely scenario to make a late playoff run. Miami seemed to have our fate in their hands with an improbable win at the Q. As I often do at home, or in Plaza 30 something…….
