LaDainian Still Deserves Better

“This could be the greatest night of our lives, but you’re gonna let it be the worst.” Animal House really is The Godfather of comedy.  It never disappoints and can be used for so many things.  The same cannot be said for the Chargers.  Tomorrow’s game was supposed to be at night (our last prime […]


Is It Over Yet?

Now I don’t even have the Mets to distract me any more.  All I can say about the World Series, by the way, is that I can’t believe they were able to even blow leads in all those games with how little they hit.  The Royals were clearly the better team and the Mets never […]


Just A Little Nervous From The Fall

I’ll keep this short for a lot of reasons, but mostly because this season is officially a bust. It may have been at that point after Green Bay, but at least we could say that the schedule was “getting easier” from here on in. The Chargers weren’t playing any better, really but the opponents were […]


Raiders Week

I know that if you listen to my broadcast on Rabble TV, you can hear my disappointment not only in the Chargers but in myself.  Let me rephrase that, FAITHFUL READER.  I’m mad about the form my anger is taking right now.  I said before the Green Bay game that I felt like this team […]


We’re Not Even Good Enough To Be That Mistake

As I finished up my post before Monday Night’s game, I thought that the overall tone might be a bit too dour. But after watching that game, I realize that I was spot on. If you peruse the Halls Of Justice, you’ll see that I usually find reason to believe that the Bolts will at […]

Could This Be Infatuation Or Am I Being Mislead Now?

It’s the Sunday before Columbus Day.  With the Chargers playing tomorrow, I have had a rare day without football obligations.  Sure, I watched a little of the other games.  But I still don’t see how we could really beat any of the teams playing well right now.  As I see Denver put away the Traitors, […]


Men Walk Through These Gates With Death In Their Eyes (Fuck Norv, Part II)

There wasn’t as much “Norv beat the Chargers” talk as I feared after Sunday’s game.  I did respond to a Tweet I saw by Merriman suggesting that Norv was doing a great job against his old team.  Norv had nothing to with that game.  No one has ever disputed that he’s a good coordinator.  He’s […]


Fuck Norv

There was a lot not to like on Sunday.  Both lines of scrimmage look weak.  Chris Watt is spending as much time on his back as Luis Castillo.  With no real push from the defensive front, we got gashed on the ground and got no pressure on Andy Dalton.  Yes, there was the “tuck rule” […]


Living On The Air In Cincinnati

You know it’s a good game when Keenan Allen is hi-stepping like the WB Frog.  That game could not have started any worse on Sunday.  When Rivers threw that pick in the end zone to end the half, I really couldn’t imagine the Chargers coming back.  I know Rivers, who was just named Fed Ex […]


Shine Your Shoes, Light The Fuse

It’s always nice when the Bolts make the Wall Street Journal, but if you read the linked piece it’s hard to imagine Patriots fans being anywhere nearly as pessimistic as us.  I won’t even waste your time on all of the shadiness that surrounds the Patriots.  Of course they’ve probably done most of the stuff […]

No Time Left Now For Shame

I fully planned to watch the second half of the preseason game via DVR, but found myself staying up until 1:00 AM EST to watch it.  No matter how much I try to manage my addiction to this team, they always win out.  If only it was consistently that way on the field.  I was […]

Such A Long, Long Time To Be Gone

I think this could actually be the longest I’ve gone without posting.  However, in my defense, I’ve had some good reasons.  Sam and I went to Aruba for a week without the kids, which was awesome.  But the first thing I saw when we got to the bar at the resort was an ESPN profile […]


Tell Me All That You Know, I’ll Show You

If you go to the 15 minute mark of this week’s San Diego Sports Junkies podcast, you’ll here yours truly rambling on about the Bolts.  I admit that I was talking waaaaayyy too fast and the connection with their “Skypeline” was pretty sketchy.  I can’t even hear what I was saying.  However, the guys were […]


I Currently And Always Have Indentified Myself As A Chargers Fan

This picture had to have been taken after our final loss of the season, right?  I know that Flowers was playing in front of his former fans for the first time, but I have a hard time imaging any Charger smiling after that game.  As a result of that loss, we had the same record […]


Luxury Is Temporary, Then It’s Gone

This may be one of the longest stretches I’ve gone without posting.  There’s been some positive reasons for that.  I finally found an agent for my book, which doesn’t guarantee that I won’t need to self-publish it.  However, it’s a big step and one that I wasn’t sure I would be able to take.  Years […]
