    Yup, I like it. Both National City and the Chargers would get what they want. The Bolt's would get land to develop on, and National City would be revitalized.

    Chargers | Team meets with Chula Vista officials
    Fri, 28 Jul 2006 07:18:15 -0700

    Tanya Mannes, of the San Diego Union-Tribune, reports San Diego Chargers team president Dean Spanos met with Chula Vista officials to discuss stadium possibilities Thursday, July 27. They visited two possible sites for the stadium. One in the Otay Valley and another on bayfront land south of the South Bay Power Plant. "I was most impressed with the general plan of the city," Spanos said. "You can really see what they've done in the past four or five years and what they'll do in the next 10 or 15 years."

    Chargers | City and county officials to discuss stadium issue
    Wed, 2 Aug 2006 14:52:44 -0700

    San Diego Chargers team executives and county supervisors Dianne Jacob and Ron Roberts met at the team's headquarters, according to Ronald W. Powell of the San Diego Union-Tribune to discuss eight possible stadium sites within San Diego county, including one on the Qualcomm Stadium property, which Jacob favors. Jacob and Roberts plan to meet with mayor Jerry Sanders Wednesday, Aug. 2 to discuss the stadium issue, and to propose forming a joint powers authority (involving the city and county governments) to assist in financing the stadium. Jacob, Roberts, and Sanders have said taxpayer money will not be used to fund the stadium, unless it would make money for taxpayers.

    Chargers | National City to consider building new stadium for team?
    Wed, 2 Aug 2006 14:33:44 -0700

    National City has become the second Bay city, besides Chula Vista, to express interest in becoming the new home of the San Diego Chargers, according to Ronald W. Powell of the San Diego Union-Tribune. The National City city council voted unanimously to allow city officials to begin talks with the Port District and its tenants over the future use of 52 bayfront acres that could serve as the potential site of a stadium. The approval also allows officials to begin talks with the Chargers, although no meetings have been scheduled. The San Diego city council voted to amend its lease with the team in May 2006, and allow them to look within the county for a stadium deal. Beginning Jan. 1, 2007, the Chargers can hold stadium talks with any city in the United States, and the mayors of San Antonio and Las Vegas have already expressed interest. The team can leave San Diego after the 2008 season by paying the remainder of $60 million in bonds the city issued in 1997, to pay for Qualcomm Stadium's expansion. However, team executives prefer to remain in the county, if a new deal can be struck.

    It really would be an odd one for me but maybe karma has San Antonio in store?

    That would be bitter/sweet for me when I move to Texas in the next few years.

    The cool thing (if they did move to SA) is that I'd have 50 yard line season seats by converting my G'ma's tix to my name.

    Damn I did not even think of that for myself because I am on the 50yard line as well (Section 37).

    A new stadium in San Antonio out in the hill country would be freaking way cool.

    Then buying land in an area most likely to be built out for a stadium would not be a bad investment as well.....

    The cool part is I have met Shamrock and BFISA already so finding new fans to hang with is already a mission partially completed.

    One cool part about Texas is they use their bumper hitches to move their BBQ's. Now THAT is a BBQ rig.

    Hibachi is a foreign soup or something in Texas and there it does not qualify as a real BBQ.
