    The 2009 NFL season marks the 50th Anniversary Season for the Chargers and the seven other original American Football League teams. The Chargers have designed a commemorative logo (above) to appear on its game jerseys as well as select merchandise and items throughout the year.

    The NFL also will highlight the 50th Anniversary during two “Legacy Weekends” this season. During one home and one road weekend, the Chargers and the other original AFL teams will meet head-to-head while wearing their chosen Throwback uniform. For the Chargers, their chosen uniform is modeled after the uniform worn by the 1963 AFL Championship team.

    Additional plans will be announced later this offseason.

    Hey, that's cool---my favorite team's turning 50, just like me! (Well, I've already hit the half-century mark, but that's beside the point.) Congrats to the Chargers on their golden anniversary season.........wouldn't it be a great time to finally bring the Lombardi home?

    Damn. I remember going to my first Chargers game after moving to San Diego in 99 and they were passing out 40th Anniversary pins at the gate.
    I can't believe 10 years have passed since I moved out here.

    Let's just hope this 50th season is better than the 40th (1-15, IIRC).

    Yeah but there was some benefit in that horrible season for me. I got my awesome seat since there were so many available!!! :tup:

    Though my first time seeing them play at Qualcomm was in 94. They beat the Chiefs!!!

    The very first time ever was at the Memorial Stadium against the Baltimore Colts. I believe is was in 80. I was like 12.

    My first time seeing the Chargers at the Murph was in the fall of '69, in the days of Lance "Bambi" Alworth and John Hadl. Good times.........good memories~
