    Hey everyone... my name is Nick and I'm a Chargers fan.

    "Hi Nick"

    I just wanted to stop in and introduce myself. I've been watching Chargers ball for a couple of years now, and my wife and I never miss the game. Once again... just stopped in to say HI.

    Just joined the forums, have a few things to say about myself.

    Firstly, I have NOT been a Chargers fan for a long time. In fact, I just started this year. But don't write me off as a bandwagoner or anything like that since this is the first year I've even been involved in football at all. During the summer I started getting interested in football and decided to research the local team (Chargers) and I was already familiar with them since my dad's a big fan. I considered myself a very casual Chargers fan for years but this year I've watched every single game I could (I couldn't watch a couple that weren't on local TV) Overall, the seasons been very exciting even when the Chargers weren't playing to the best of their abilities and losing close games.

    I still feel there is a good shot of making the playoffs. Just one half of decent football from the Bills is all we need now.

    Go Chargers :tup:

    Biggest Bolts Fan In The Great White North

    I found this site around the middle of this season and I thought it high time I introduce myself to my fellow Charger fans.

    I have been a Charger fan since the Doug Flutie era. Here's my story. I live in St. Catharines Ontario Canada, about an hour from Buffalo. Because of geography I was a Bills fan for much of my life. Until the year the Bills decided to cut Doug Flutie in lieu of Rob Johnson (who was eventually traded to Tampa where he sucked too). Rob Johnson (A.K.A. Glass Johnson) is one of the worst quarterbacks I have EVER seen, man that guy took some HUGE hits while he stayed in the pocket WAY to long... Anyways, my allience went with Doug Flutie to the Chargers that year.....Where he had a pro bowl season! The Chargers also got from the Bills that year Wade Phillips and Christie, familiar Bills players and coaches!

    So that's my story, have been a Charger fan ever since. I would love to get to a home SD game, one year I'm sure. What's nice is the Chargers have faced the Bills a bunch of times of the past few years, perhaps next Bills visit I can be your correspondent!

    Go Chargers!

    Cyande Mint.

    P.S. Thank god for the Bills this season!

    NAME: Justin
    AGE: 33
    WHERE WERE YOU BORN: Sacramento,CA , but I pretty much grew up in San Diego since I was 6 years old.
    WHERE DO YOU RESIDE: Los Angeles, CA
    MARRIED: No
    KIDS: None

    WHO IS YOUR FAVORITE EX CHARGER: Michael Turner

    WHO IS YOUR FAVORITE CURRENT CHARGER: Vincent Jackson!!!:abq1:

    FAN SINCE: Bandwagon since 1987, but really started paying attention to the Chargers back in 2007 while suffering through life in that crappy place in Northern California known as the Bay Area. Specifically the East Bay. I slowly learned to hate it up there and appreciate my So Cal roots, especially since so many people up there love to bag on So Cal. Luckily I escaped back to L.A. now, can visit S.D. on the weekends, and I'm still watching the Chargers.

    WHERE HAVE YOU SEEN THE CHARGERS PLAY IN PERSON: I have never seen them play in person. I hope to someday.

    WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE CHARGER MOMENT: The fourth quarter win against KC this year, in 2008. Cromartie's interceptions last year, but he's not doing so well now.

    WHAT IS YOUR WORST CHARGER MOMENT: Playoff loss to the Patriots in 2008, and way back in the day the superbowl loss to stupid San Fran.

    ARE YOU PLANNING TO MAKE A GAME THIS YEAR: No, probably not.

    WHAT WILL THE TEAMS RECORD BE: I can't predict the future.

    WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE FOOD AT A GAME: N/A I've never been.

    WHO IS YOUR FAVORITE BASEBALL TEAM: N/A I like :football:
    Who IS YOUR FAVORITE BASKETBALL TEAM: N/A I like :football:

    My apologies to any Charger fans in the Bay Area but I found this quote from http://www.city-data.com/forum/san-francisco/299377-bay-area-sucks.html
    and have never read anything which resonates with as much truth as this does.

    Top 5 reasons why the bay really does suck (oakland, berkeley, and SF).

    5. The cost of basic living is beyond the beyond, but this is obvious.

    4. The homeless are professionals. I get hit up for money and cigarettes 10 times a day on average. no joke. These people have been selling their stories for years and years. I think it comes from all those hippies who embraced vagrancy decades ago. There seems to be this long standing attitude of entitlement. I don't even think most of the bums are actually homeless. This one I see everyday has a cell phone.

    3. BART is pathetic. It's a train that services 3 major cities and yet shuts down at midnight each night. 20 minute waits between trains. Always smells like ****. Can't take your bike on during "peak" hours which means you really can't bike to work in this so called bike-friendly city.

    2. Crime is horrendous and the police are worthless. My car was broken into five times last year and just this month was stolen and stripped for parts. This was in a "good" section of town. Police did absolutely nothing.
    This kind of thing is just expected out here.

    1. Oakland was rated 4th most violent city in the US last year. SF and Berk aren't much better. I know of three people who have been mugged recently in very public places. I hear about kids getting shot each weekend. it's embarrassing.


    And this quote from here http://www.bayarearidersforum.com/forums/showthread.php?t=270811 as well:

    “Yes, we all know that there is a little war going on between San Francisco and Los Angeles, but as far as I see it, only people in San Francisco know about it”



    Needless to say. I HATE OAKLAND! :turdspuke:
    Don't much care for San Francisco either!

    To all the haters in the East Bay, thank you for helping me appreciate my roots and gain some pride and respect for Southern California.
    East Bay sucks!:conc::icon_finger:

    Go CHARGERS!!!!!!!!
    Representing So Cal in the NFL!!!!!:rockout::icon_beerbang:

    Whoa! NorCal is not better thasn SoCal but it isn't awful. You can have a good day in San Francisco but I'd hate to live there. Berkeley isn't much better, which is one reason I chose to pass on my admission to UC Berkeley. But I live in Davis and I love it! I'm in the Cal Aggie Band-uh! and I have a great time. NorCal<SoCal but NorCal is cool too bro.
    Oakland is the worst place in the entire country.
