    It seems that the off-season is never so long as when it's about to end.

    Gads, I'm bored silly.... there's nothing but stupid crap on TV, and the Padres suck......I cannot WAIT for football season to arrive. Even the preseason. For some reason it feels like it's taking forever to get here, and I'm usually complaining about how fast time goes. But I have this funny feeling that this year is going to be one of our best.......maybe even our best ever......and I'm getting as antsy as a kid on Christmas Eve.

    We still have some holes to patch up, and I'm not a big fan of Norv Turner. But I think the team is pretty solid overall, and if they can recapture that 'can-do' spirit they had during the last part of 2008 and into the playoffs, they've got a solid shot at the Lombardi.

    Maybe it's just the crazy optimism of the Charger fan of 40 years, but I think this could be our year.

    GO BOLTS!!!!!!!!:abq2::abq2::abq2:

    I know, I'm starting college and I'm excited as all hell for the football season, all of which kicks off in August. I've been saying "is it August yet?" since May.

    :abq2::abq2::flag::abq2::abq2:

    Looking forward to one (or both) of those nighttime practices down at the stadium. I get more value out of those than I do from the Fan Fest...but I may go to that too!!!

    It's okay, I'm used to it. Although the Back to School ads are quite the annoyance.

    Actually, for me it all starts again on August 24, with a bit of prep beforehand.

    I love the one TV ad where the father is going up and down the aisles singing, "It's the most wonderful time of the Year" as he is shopping for all the back to school items, and his kids keep giving him the "EVIL" eye.

    That's always been one of my favorite commercials too.:tup:

    Now, of course, it's lost something in translation since I no longer have kids in school. But that's OK---this will be the first September in 21 years that I won't go broke paying for school clothes and supplies, pictures, student fees, class lab fees and so on.:yes::abq2:

    Yeah, school will be nice since I have a home office now.

    My wife is a teacher as well. Lots of school drama. Principal of 1 yr just resigned, but then he didn't make a lot of friends in the year he was there. Our kids go there as well.

    To me its starting. The first preseason game will be big. And the second game. Usually the 4th preseason game is just played to get it over with. And then the season. This season is gonna be sumthin if the chargers defense perks up. Time to kick butt in the nfl. Might be a good year to tape games.
