Default I'm baaaaaaaack!

I'm hooked on the Chargers

After attending the very first Chargers game in San Diego many years ago, I became a fan of the team. During all these years I have remained a faithful fan, even during all the years that they were last in the AFCW.

For many years, the sports writers and broadcasters in LA treated the city of San Diego and the Chargers as a weak sister to the South and it always made me burn. As a result, I adopted a "I don't like any LA team" attitude. When they recently announced the move to LA, I said that's it for me. I'm not going to be a fan of an LA team.

BUT, I've come to realize, my interest in the Bolts is deeper than my dislike of LA teams. I've found that I can not really pick a different to cheer for (as I had thought I could). I find that I still read everything I see about the team or the players on the internet. - In short, I can't give up on the team after all these years. So here I am - back on the Chargers forum, reading all I can find about the Bolts. I'll just have to think of them as the Chargers and ignore the initials I now see in front of their name.

You want analysis? Don't ask me: I'm just a Pollyanna lying idiotic know-nothing ball-watching stat boy.

The way to deal with our pain is to
redouble our efforts to win that Lombardi.
