    AS we have said before TSZ does not just affiliate with any site just to swap links we look for many things. Deb and Fletcher found a site that are very own HollywoodLeo frequents because its a site for his favorite team the Chargers. This site has it al a gorgeous front page with a lot of informative information and a great fan forum with posters of all spectrum's. I would like to share with you an interview with Thumper the administrator of our newest fan site www.bolttalk.com. I would encourage you to go over there check it out and let them know what you think of it.

    Mike: Thumper How is everything going? Nice of you to take the time to answer a few questions for me.

    T: Everything is going well. It's going to be a great season. Glad to talk to you anytime.


    Mike: Well you are the the main guy at bolttalk.com how did you stumble upon the great site?

    T: I don't know if stumble is the right word, but we've definitely had our share or breaks and setbacks along the way.

    Mike: Well we can save those breaks and setbacks for another time lets talk about the goods now. How long has bolttalk.com been around and what are your plans for it in the future?

    T: BoltTalk.com was founded by my partner in the site ChargersRay in June of 2005. ChargerRay founded the site as an outlet for his weekly Chargers podcast. A few short months later I founded talkbolts.com. Where Ray's focus was on the podcast, mine was on the forum. One of the first people to register at talkbolts.com was Ray. Still we remained two separate entities until I approached Ray about the possibility of merging the two websites. In March of 2006

    Thumper thanks a lot for doing this for me and appreciate the link on your front page. :icon_toast: Can not wait for the Tailgate:tup:

    There are no sites that talk Chargers football where the forum owners attend the Charger tailgaters.

    None. :no:

    I have yet to see any Spanos from Chargers.com or any of the Copley's from the Union Tribune forums attend ANY TAILGATERS whatsoever.

    Glorifythepast has some dude in Chicago (I think) running what was one of the hottest Chargers site until this one came along.

    A fresh approach to having fun on a website without feeling like you were going to see the dentist or proctologist (we cover all ends here) was what these dudes accomplished. :yes:

    Oh and go mother EFFING CHARGERS !!! :bolt: :helm1: :bolt2: :SDC:

    Yeah when I read that about Thumper and the tailgates and the way he comes across he reminds me a lot like me.

    Dudes are all heart. This site sonsored our tailgaters year. That ran at least a grand for the brothers and they ain't rich but it was a blast and it got the site a bit more exposure since the media loves that trumpet dude. :lol:

    I have a feeling this site will be setting up shop close to our normal tailgating spot this year. :yes:

    One of the MODS here has an exclusive Gold Zone area where forum regulars attend the tailgaters as well. Actually, Bolttalk had two simultaneous tailgaters going all year long last year.

    Anyway, they are fans first and foremost and bonafide diehards.

    Go Chargers !!! :bolt:

    The Bolttalk sponsored tailgaters last year had this tailgater webcam set-up for the fans who wanted to live vicariously and see what it felt like - well sorta - to attend a tailgater LIVE. Nobody else was doing LIVE tailgate cams until these dudes said "what the hell let's give it a shot". Cool gadgetty thing that again no one else was doing.

    So Eric (Thumper) goes out and buys a laptop and a Verizon Aircard to dole out the madness via the internet - again - LIVE.

    Here is a great webcam shot of a message I got off to a forum regular "leisure" is his name during last years tailgater.

    I think I was mad at him that week for some reason and probably primed to the gills (which is expected in So Cali). :icon_party: :nana_rasta: :rockout: :icon_high: :football:

    Everyone who's interested in discussing sports in general outside of our world of Chargers football should give TSZ a look.

    It's a pretty nice community.

    He's not really a Spurs hater, he's just a Cavs fan
