I Don’t Hate the Chargers, I’m Sadly Indifferent

January 1, 2018

This 2017 calendar year was horribly brutal for San Diego Sports. Not that any particular year in the past has been great to America’s Finest City. Fans are still waiting for a major sports championship, which would be the first one for the city since the Bolts won the 1963 AFL Championship, now 55 years ago. San Diego is beautiful, but as lovely as the city can be, the political…


Chargers Quickly Becoming the Laughing-Stock of the NFL

October 7, 2017

Thanks Dean. We really appreciate how you have taken one of San Diego’s prized jewels and turned them into a circus act in Los Angeles. No, I take that back. A circus has organization and is a well-oiled machine that takes numerous competent individuals to run it successfully. The Chargers are more like a freak show now. That is the simple truth. Renting a stadium, in a market where you…


The Chargers Broke My Heart, And I am NOT Alone

September 2, 2017

Roughly nine months have passed since Dean Spanos made the decision to slither off to Los Angeles. This move was totally money driven, as the worth of his football club has increased. There is no doubt that the Chargers have more value now that they play in the second largest city in the United States. A man with an extreme amount of money, that has a net worth of $2.4…


Potential New Teams for Ex-Chargers Fans (Revised)

August 18, 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….


I Still Cringe When I See a Lightning Bolt Logo

April 13, 2017

After being a faithful supporter of the San Diego Chargers, like many native San Diegans, my life was recently turned upside down. The team is no longer in America’s Finest City, and that is a sad fact that is still very hard to come to grips with. My father taught me to love the team. He had season tickets for many years in the 80’s, and it is then and…


A Message to All Chargers Fans (Current or Former)

April 9, 2017

I know what you’re saying. “A Charger article on East Village Times. What is this, 2015?” Yes I know, you haven’t seen hardly any Chargers-related articles since they packed their bags and did LT’s electric slide all the way to Los Angeles. Many former Chargers fans were faced with a tough question recently. Will I support the Los Angeles Chargers? For most people, the question has already been answered (for…


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…
