I can do without MLB, NBA, and NHL, but a world without the NFL would be a very sad and boring one. The gridiron is back, thank god as I couldn’t imagine fall and winter without it. Barbeques, fantasy leagues, monday nights, cold beer, Madden, Al Michaels, and of course….THE CHARGERS!
Living in San Diego you can’t help but love the Chargers and eventually no matter where you are transplanted from you end up being a Bolts fan. Ironically, San Diego is home for many professional athletes and some of the fittest people per capita, but other than the Chargers the city lacks a professional sports team to follow (sorry Padres). And even though the Chargers seem to fall short of their talented roster every year, I am looking forward to this year’s team starting off fast and hopefully taking the AFC West and beyond.
I think with some key veteran pickups on defense (Takeo Spikes, Bob Sanders) and some young talent as well (Liuget, Gilchrist, Mouton) the defense will be tougher than last year especially on the run. And since the offense will actually start the year with their two potential Pro-Bowlers Jackson and McNeill, Rivers’ should be dropping some long-bombs early on. Here are some of my pics from the Chargers first home preseason game against the Seattle Seahawks. Great to be back in the endzone, thanks for looking, and please feel free to comment!
