    <blockquote>By Tim Sullivan

    <font class="newstext"><img width="210" height="296" align="left" alt="LaDainian Tomlinson" title="LaDainian Tomlinson" src="http://www.nctimes.com/content/articles/2005/12/25/sports/professional/chargers/21_50_5312_23_05.jpg" /> Think of LaDainian Tomlinson as a candle. He burns brightly, but the glow is gradually, inexorably diminished. He is, to borrow a phrase from Cole Porter, "too hot <em>not </em>to cool down." </font>

    <font class="newstext">Yet the Chargers' remarkable running back resists rationing. He would rather melt away from overuse than to be carefully conserved for the sake of longevity. He plays in the moment rather than for the monument. He is all about the here and now. </font>

    <font class="newstext"> "That's not important to me that my career last," Tomlinson said the other day at the Chargers' Murphy Canyon complex. "During this time, I want to be able to give them all I've got, and not reserve it " ." . </font></blockquote>
