    L.T. prayers unanswered

    Bar's shrine brings no luck to Chargers
    By Michael Stetz

    SAN DIEGO – They've got to get this right. And quick.
    The football god that is LaDainian Tomlinson apparently isn't pleased with the food offerings that mere mortals are leaving him at a shrine in the High Dive Grill in Bay Park.

    Before the season's first game, a cheeseburger was placed in front of flickering candles and a color photograph of L.T. – put up in honor of the Chargers running back.

    And L.T. did not do very well.

    Since then, they've tried Red Bull energy drinks and more cheeseburgers and even flirted with idea of something lighter, perhaps a fruit bowl.

    And, well . .

    The Chargers are 1-3 and L.T., aside from busting out in the first half of last week's game against Kansas City, has looked flat and, well, human.

    “We might try something like a Thai chicken salad this week,” said Erik Qua, one of the bar's owners.

    The shrine is new this season. It's something the bar's owners and patrons figured L.T. deserved, considering his other-worldly abilities. Last season, he was the NFL's Most Valuable Player and scored a record-setting 31 touchdowns.

    “Everybody is always saying he's a god,” said Chad Cline, another of the owners. “We figured if he's a god, he deserves a shrine.” :icon_evil:

    On Sundays, right before game time, the theme to the movie “Superman,” is played and the candles are lit. Cline carries a food offering on a silver tray to the shrine. Then he backs away, bowing.

    But either L.T. isn't happy with the offering or the food is messing with his godlike abilities. :icon_eek:

    One concern: Somebody in the bar heard recently that L.T. doesn't eat red meat, and here they've been offering him burgers.

    “We got to change it up,” Qua said. “It's getting ugly.”

    Qua, a diehard Chargers fan, says they'll try again today, when the Chargers play the Denver Broncos in Denver. If the Chargers lose, they would drop to 1-4 and their playoff hopes would be dashed.

    The shrine will stay up, regardless.

    “When things don't go well, that's the last time you stop praying,” Qua said.

    I am going to call these people to let them know that AJ Smith is god as well.

    The shrine is not complete and they bear false witness to incomplete god packages. ... not to mention to Ginsu knives with this offer (ing).

    They need to sacrifice a Raider fan.

    Whatever they did today must have worked.

    To answer the question, and I'm sure that LT would agree.


    NO.
    Never.
    Not even close.


    But Trumpy thinks he is.
