Congrats, Peyton

Chargers lost, but at least Peyton Manning won’t break the touchdown record against them. That’s the only bright side to playing the Broncos on a short week after losing to the Chefs at home.

Help Keep Little Kids Safe!

youthfootball

My buddy Charlie started a youth sports injury education/prevention company: Agency for Student Health Research. The company is currently in the running for a local grant… which, if they win, they’ll launch a statewide injury surveillance program for every high school in California with the goal of better understanding/preventing/managing sports injury.

According to their website, they’re goal: “Achieving the safest possible environment for all children.” 

Who opposes children’s safety? Nobody. Certainly not you.

**UPDATE – they got enough votes to qualify. thanks, guys**

Anyone interested in assisting Charlie, the voting ends today. PLEASE CLICK HERE.

Go Chargers.

Philip Rivers Shines Bright in a Terribly Produced Thursday Night Football Interview

YouTube Preview Image

Philip Rivers. What a stud. Can’t hear anything these clowns are asking him on the field in the middle of a halftime show… still managed to give great answers to questions he basically made up in his own head. Amazing. I didn’t see it live because I was putting my kids to bed, but I asked for it once I saw how twitter responded, which was brilliant.

 

 

 

Keep in mind, the last time Rivers did an interview with the Thursday Night Football crew, he showed his bolo time and rattlesnake skin boots to the world…

The legend of Philip Rivers grows…

No Stopping the Royals…

Even ballsier when you realize he used to play for the O’s and the fans loved him even though the team sucked. Bold, bold move. These Royals are destined for greatness. There will be no bloody sock man for the O’s.  

Kinda bummed he apologized. Embrace it, Jeremy!

#BeatTheGiants or #BeatTheCards – whichever…

Go American League!

os-royals

I’ve always been an NL lover. But this year, I don’t care who wins the NLCS… I strongly dislike both the Giants and the Cardinals. I’m pulling for the American League to win it all. Would love to see either the O’s or Royals there.

Attention General Quarterback…

Ended up being a great game last night… saw this photoshop job and felt it worthy of posting. Good stuff. Fitzpatrick’s beard is other worldly…. so is the play of JJ Watt. Dude is insane.

¡Felipe Rios!

felipe-rios

Yes! Yes! Yes! I love this. I need this puppy blown up into poster size for my garage. And I need about a dozen of these trading cards.

I don’t know the origin of Felipe Rios, but I’m guessing someone on the Chargers sub-reddit first created him. I’ve seen variations of it floating around the internet for over a year. If anybodys know who first created it, hit me up. As for the origin of the photograph, I immediately recognized the image they used from an old ESPN the Magazine cover…

ESPN-Magazine-Philip-Rivers

That magazine was from December 4, 2006. Here’s the best mock-up I’ve seen.

felipe-rios-chargers

Question, do people think this is racist? With San Diego so close to Mexico, a huge contingent of the Chargers fan base is Hispanic. “Felipe Rios” is obviously the literal translation of Philip Rivers into Spanish, and he’s wearing a sombrero and they gave him a handlebar mustache and sideburns, so I understand how some people could be sensitive to that. I’m not sure. I certainly don’t think so, I think it’s hilarious and I love it…  but then again, I’m not Mexican.

Oh, and if you’re wondering who the quarterback was for the Chargers for that 1971 Topps card above… wonder no more.
