LT getting the season TD record is easily #1.

My favorite of all time...my fifth birthday getting a Fouts jersey, that's what started it all for me.

Second best was when my dad and I were on the sidelines for the Broncos/Chargers last game at Mile High. We got smoked with Leaf at QB but we saw it all from the sidelines and I got a picture of me, my dad and Seau

Taking my kids to Charger park for TC and always being able to count on Malcolm Floyd coming to the fence to sign autographs. Great guy.

The moment Dennis Gibson batted the football away at the goalline in Pittsburgh.

Gibson knocking down the pass on 4th down that put SD in the Super Bowl.

Going to my first Chargers game in SD - the playoff game vs the Jets in January 2010. The atmosphere at the stadium and city was great.

Saw the Chargers play in Buffalo in 2006. Our seats were 2 rows up from the Chargers bench. Saw LT, Merriman, Rivers up close and could hear some of what they said "Damn it's cold!". The best was when Marty chewed out Donnie Edwards for some reason. LT and Merriman were beasts that day. Bills fans spilled beer over me but I didn't care.

I am glad you reminded me of that moment. It has to be the happiest moment I've had watching sports. I went to the stadium that night. It was kind of a spontaneous rally.
The place was overly packed. People were everywhere, including the roof.
They showed the Chargers land and then convoy to the stadium. Electric.

I was at the Miami game the week before in the Q. We were losing at half time. A young lady came up to me as I was in line for a brew. She said crying "We're going to lose, aren't we". I said "No, we are going to come back and win". It was like I was some kind of seer. She said, Really? Stopped crying. Walked away smiling. I remember the people being so happy when we won. Long after the game was over, the cheers were everywhere......parking lot, stadium, I 15.

Orange Bowl. One of my oldest memories period, much less Chargers. May (at this point) be my single oldest human memory.

I don't remember the game (other than from replays) but I remember the room, my family, the cheering, etc...

Indelible episodic memory.

Aren't you glad we didn't flip the switch?

Sproles up the gut met by Ray Lewis in the backfield. NORV'd again!

AJ's Larry English pick - who? Didn't want one of those guys on the magazine cover?

Deano firing Marty after going 14-2 (actually 3) but still, dum dum dum dum...

Majority of my memories are like that today. Good riddance!
