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…


Philip Rivers: The Reason You Shouldn’t “Hate-Watch” the Chargers

April 25, 2017

I know, I know. Another article about the Chargers leaving and why you should or shouldn’t root for them. Well, this article is a little different for one reason: Philip Rivers. The kid from Alabama, who was traded to the Chargers on draft day, quickly became one of the most adored San Diegans of his era. You all remember the humbling that the Manning family put on the Chargers on…


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…


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…


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…


The San Diego Chargers “Can’t Call It”

January 4, 2017

Week 17, January 1, 2017, was potentially the San Diego Chargers‘ “last” contest in San Diego, one year after going through the same song and dance in 2016. Even Philip Rivers made comments about it not being quite the same as before. I don’t disagree with him after attending both games as a fan. Personally, I didn’t allow it to destroy me like it did in 2016. I also wasn’t…


Are the Chargers Leaving? Thanks, I guess…

January 2, 2017

“This is the end. This is the end. My only friend, the end.” This song went through my head after the Chargers’ last game. With all the news swirling around about the team’s expected (and all but conclusive) move to Los Angeles next season, this really is the end. I’ve been a fan of the Chargers for as long as I’ve watched football. I didn’t grow up in San Diego….

The last time San Diego played Kansas City, it was the season opener and a lot of Chargers fans had high hopes for the 2016 season.

December 22, 2016

Last Sunday at the Q, the San Diego Chargers lost a gut-wrenching game to their bitter rival Oakland Raiders, in a game that felt much like a funeral due to the huge amount of Raiders’ fans that infiltrated Qualcomm Stadium. This Saturday, the Bolts travel to Northeast Ohio to face the historically awful Cleveland Browns, in a game that doesn’t mean much for either team. Every week here at EVT,…
