    I was at that game too. I don’t remember who KC’s normal starting QB was back then, (I think it was Elvis Grbac, but I’m not positive) he was injured or something so backup QB Warren Moon called the signals for the Chiefs, and it was during the very latter stage of his Hall of Fame career.

    I also remember the parody songs that radio local radio stations were playing as our losses were adding up – my favorite one was “Everybody Beats You”, created when we sank to 0-8 and sung to the tune of the Billy Squire hit “Everybody Wants You”.

    A local DJ was living on a billboard and wouldn't come down until the Chargers won a game. I remember listening to the post game show and they interviewed that DJ. He had a TV so he could watch the game. Didn't know that CBS cut away from the game until that DJ mentioned it.

    That was also the era (or error) of the ticket guarantee where the city would pay for any unsold tickets to lift the local blackout.

    I've had German beer, having travelled there before. It's not to my taste, overall for Europe I prefer Belgian beer, although of course there are exceptions.

    I'm not sure if you are aware of the explosion of craft beers in San Diego, but your statement of American beer tasting like watered down beer is like comparing Budweiser to a good German beer. Try an IPA from SD, and you'll find that if your piss tastes like this, then you're probably going to be dying soon.

    The local beer scene is more more experimental, interesting, and flavorful than anything coming out of Europe these days. People think of SD as being laid back, but the brews are seriously kick ***.

    Well, I've never been in Germany, so I can't attest to the characteristics of fresh German beer...:cry:
    but I will agree with the "Angry Birds" guy that fresh beer is in a whole 'nother class,
    and--given the Germans' rep for brewing--I expect that I'd love fresh German beer.

    I am a bit confused, however, by the frequent use of the phrase "tastes like watered down piss."
    It implies some familiarity which, frankly, may move me to borrow the loser quip: "TMI!!"
    I've heard dozens of people forcefully use the term...as if to stress that they really know what they're
    talking about. Were I ever to join their number, and actually consume urine...well, I think I probably
    would choose to water it down...significantly! I guess I'm just no purist. :unsure:

    Much?
    No, just where appropriate.
    A) I was no more forceful re. "lose to win" than was the person I was responding to.
    B) The other person had already offered a definition of "fair weather fan"...which he also seemed to fit.
    C) I used to drink more than I do know. Reading anything judgmental into that would be an error.
    I was responding to a silly, unnecessarily defensive "Well, let's see YOUR bar" taunt.
    So, the first two...sure...but it was an appropriate, proportionate response. Last one is an imagined slight.

    Don't even bother. Talking with someone about this topic when they place an infinite value on the temporary emotional high of winning, regardless of the circumstances, and no value on the opportunity afforded by selecting higher approximates trying to have a rational discussion about the reasons for quitting with a heroin addict.

    Wow! Heroin?!? That's quite a "high road" you take there
    when lecturing about the alleged but admittedly uncertain superiority of hypothetical future wins to actual (now) wins.
