    Right now, it's at the point where you can't go very far in the entire San Diego area without seeing some sort of lightning image.

    A new stadium and a Super Bowl title will really paint this whole area blue and gold!!! :bolt:

    How far away does it look before a new stadium is completed or is that just talk right now?

    Nothing has been approved yet but the news has been good for the last couple months. At first, there were two possible locations in Chula Vista which is in San Diego county. Now the city of San Diego is discussing a bay front stadium in Downtown San Diego.

    How are things looking in Buffalo for a new stadium?

    That's why I asked. 9 out of 10 times they are San Diego Co residents.

    You hit the lottery finding a Chargers fan in NM. I grew up in San Diego and have since returned however I spent 20 years in between in Albuquerque. I probably met or seen a total of 10 people there that were Chargers fans. Since they do not have any pro sports they all migrate to the Broncos or Cowboys.

    in Virginia there is a fair amount of SD fans, but mostly redskins and ravens, btw in 2005 when LT scored the winning TD in OT all the washington fans crongulated me and my charger fans and they did'nt act like totally patriots. the redskins and their fans have always been on the good side of my list:tup:

    That is great to hear! I am sure that by now there are a few more also due to the way the Chargers have been playing. Since there is not a pro sports team there you will have some jump on the bandwagon.
