    Okay, I'll be honest. I gave up and turned off the game after Kaepernick made that long run for a TD. :oops:Anybody else want to own up? It was half past five in the morning or something like that here in Spain and I needed some shut-eye..., but enough excuses. I thought the game and the season were over for the Bolts.

    To wake up this morning and see they actually won is an early Xmas gift for me. Is there anywhere on the Net where I can watch a replay of the fourth quarter? That must have been one hell of a comeback.

    The fifth quarter was where it was at. Skip the 4th Q and save yourself some pain/time.

    I was at LAX. The only part of the game I got o see up to the final TD and over time was a few early plays and PR17's pick 6. I will tell you early in the game it looked like PR17 needed to be benched for his health. His throws were well off target and he looked to be in pain with every throw.

    I went for a work out at the start of halftime, when I came back it was right after Liuget scored the TD, just enough to keep my *** on the couch for the rest of it.

    Plus I started Rivers and Gates in the championship game so I was kind of invested that way too.

    Watched the whole ugly thing...the cat found a hiding place around halftime to get away from the screaming. For the first half our guys looked terrible and were on the wrong end of the highlight reel...but fortunately the are two halves, and overtime. I was getting concerned with Charger players dropping left and right. Thankfully, the entire team stood up and refused to lose. Wow! Get well guys...we need all of you Sunday in KC.

    P.S. The cat came back around after the game...all is forgiven (...or she wanted food, I'm never sure.)

    Watched the first half in a bar, then got home and watched other shows until I checked back into the game with about 2 minutes left. I was recording the game so I could watch what I missed. Now I have to go back and at least watch the strip sack TD. It may be too painful to watch the rest of the crap.

    I watched the whole thing, and a lot of customers at the bar left during the start and half, but some came back towards the end of regulation, and then it got interesting as the Bolts played for OT. Then the bar became lively again! I never lost my seat at the bar. Great time, got hammered after the win! And for all of my Bolts bretheren who were repping us out in Frisco, I salute you!!! Way to support our Bolts!!!

    I was at the game... Watched some (not many)49er fans head out early! :rolleyes:

    The game for me ranked up there with the OT playoff win VS. the colts when the older #43 scored a TD.... :D

    Was wondering how it was for you there. Saw a fair amount of Charger blue in the seats, along with a lot of empty seats too.

    How was the game experience at Levi's?

    When I heard from someone that the stadium was sparsely filled, I wondered if the nyners fans were just casually being late getting to their seats. When I saw the cameras panning out to see the crowd, it almost looked like an Aztecs game at the Q...

    The experience (Levi's stadium) was OUTSTANDING! Pre-game and game itself... Not sure if its the 49ers or just being so-close to the field... Not one word from a 49er fan, only thing said was from a Bolts fan since I had a 49ers fan with us...
    YES! Lots of Blue everywhere!!! Best part was when our end-zone went into a "LETS GO CHARGERS" chant after the fumble recovery in the endzone for a TD.. We were in the far end... Getting in was easy--- getting out sucked, I got home around 1:30am and its only 45mins away...... Bottom line a NEW Stadium = Better game day experience for me..

    Our seats (Row 11) were right where Floyd got the final TD. Thank You StubHub :D

    Was there too, voice is gone. Man what a game, the lets go chargers chant was epic. Never had a person say squat other than some good natured ribbing from people around us who obviously didn't have anything to say afterwards. Great facility but missing mystique. Kapernick is fn fast...

    I don't have NFL Channel. Had to follow the game on the computer. My youngest son and I were screeming at the monitor. What made my evening was the EX calling to rub in the beat down in the 3rd Qtr. Be nice if a stray lightening bolt found it's mark!!

    I'm also based in Europe (UK) and missed the 1st quarter. I watched the remainder and stayed until the end. Finally got to bed around 5:45 Sunday morning.

    It was worth it...

    I didn't turn it off, but admittedly I took off my LT jersey in the 2nd quarter thinking it just wasn't our night.

    And then... ;)

    It was painful in the beginning.... But I hung in... Had to drive my Older son and 4 year old daughter to the movies and listened to it on my Iphone... If they brought in Clemens, I was going to turn it off.. Late in the 3rd, I had the kids back in the car and couldn't watch for a few for fear of wrecking the car... Walked in to the local liquor store for some pain killer just in time to see us down by 7 and raced home to finish the game! My son and I tore the place up.
    I love these kinds of heart attacks... !

    Didn't turn off the tube, but spen a lot of time wondering why I was forcing myself to endure the pain. Also invented several new cuss words.

    When I get the chance to watch the Bolts on the TV there is no way I can turn it off. Besides, I've been hardened by being a season ticket holder and I never left early while sitting though a live drubbing of the Bolts.

    My dad used to want to leave early if the score wasn't close in order to beat the traffic. Hated that!

    I didn't like leaving early either but when I didn't have control I had to go with the flow.

    ...I put ON my LT jersey at halftime. I'll take partial credit for it. Made people sit in certain spots and as soon as my 49ers friend left early in the 3rd...destiny sealed the victory. I then went to a party that the same 49er friend invited me to. He had no idea of the outcome and was shocked that I was still wearing my LT jersey. It was glorious giving him the news...
