    Well, nine of the 53 players on the Chargers' active roster weren't even born yet, so don't ask the likes of Darren Sproles or Shawne Merriman. (Merriman was born May 25, 1984, which for you baseball fans, is the day the Red Sox traded for Bill Buckner. Not that anything ever came of that. More to the point, do you remember ‘Jump' by Van Halen getting all that airplay on the radio that spring? Going to watch the movies Footloose and Beverly Hills Cop? Merriman doesn't. He wasn't born yet. Feeling about old as Abe Vigoda right now?)

    As for January 2, 1982: Chargers vs. Dolphins. 41-38. Overtime. Missed field goals. Blocked field goals. Don Strock. Hook and ladder, also known as hook and lateral. (Potato, po-tah-to.) It was probably the most memorable game in Charger history, and every time the Bolts and the Fish renew acquaintances, it's tough not to turn on the WABAC machine and bask in the misty, water-colored memories. Kellen Winslow essentially made the Hall of Fame on that humid afternoon.</blockquote>
