Two Former Chargers QBs, One Amazing Twitter Exchange

I love Drew Brees. I love Doug Flutie. I love this little twitter exchange so much. The Smokey and the Bandit hashtag. All of it is perfect.

What’s the backstory there? That Brees made Flutie buy his TransAm? Need to know. I mean, I know they’re boys… but what’s the story there?

Isn’t it crazy that in 2004, the Chargers had Drew Brees, Doug Flutie, AND Philip Rivers on their roster?

Also, is that Billy Madison’s whip? I think it is.

Chargers vs. Niners Recap, Vine Style

gates-mathews

For Chargers fans, I must be the most ghetto Vine follow ever. I watch Chargers games, if I see something noteworthy, I’ll pause my DVR, rewind, and record a Vine of my TV. So ghetto. Anyway, I figured if I’m gonna post all those to twitter, I might as well link them up here as well because, terrible as they are, they’re probably better than the ESPN highlights. Here we go… the game as I saw it.





Then I stopped watching… hope you enjoyed. Bolts ended up losing, but really, they won. 

By the way, my favorite is when P. Riv pretended he was gonna tuck and run.

Fire Shirt From Federer

Oh, you like your tee? Federer’s is betterer. Love this.

They’re $40 a pop online. Too much for a tee… even an awesome tee.

LobShots’ ALS Ice Bucket Challenge…

YouTube Preview Image

Say what you want about the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, but before you judge too hard, just know that it’s raised millions for the ALS Association.

So, what’s the consensus? Think our buddy Mahon will respond? I don’t.

Ahhhh…. Vacation.

cabowman

Hello, friends. That’s a photo from LobShots co-founder, Showman’s, bachelor party in Cabo. Showman’s got the white shades, I’ve got the late 80s Padres hat on. The last blog I posted was 2 days before that photo was taken. Feels weird not blogging in over two weeks. I kinda wondered if anybody would notice or care. Turns out I did get a handful of emails asking, “are you ok?” – “are you done blogging?” – “I’m worried about you” – things like that. Feels nice that you all noticed. Thanks. Granted, if you follow me on twitter, you were in the loop as I’d been updating my feed.

Anyway, amazing Cabowman bachelor party in Cabo, then when all the boys left, my wife flew down to meet me and we celebrated our 10-year anniversary for 4 days, just the two of us… no kids. Also amazing. We had dinner at this cool place called Flora Farms, and my wife was in celebrity heaven, as we ate right next to Liev Schreiber and Naomi Watts. Then we came back to San Diego for a few days, then we loaded the kiddos up in the mini-van and went to visit friends in Santa Cruz (Capitola actually) for a few days. Now we’re back in San Diego and it’s business as usual when Monday rolls around.

Anyway, I’m back. Thanks for reading. Go Pads. Go Bolts. xoxo.

What Happens When Someone With 3.41 MILLION Followers Retweets You?

kawhi

Well, that’s cool. Rob Dyrdek retweeted me. (kinda) I guess he thought my little “Kawhi Leonard has big hands” joke was original. He’s got 3.41 MILLION followers. My @ mentions were blowing up yesterday afternoon. I went to check out how many followers I gained from this incredible exposure…

Any guesses?

Zero.

My Two Favorite Comic Con Videos…

bolts-fans

These are both from the 2013 San Diego Comic Con and I love them as much today as I did then. The first is from Dallas McLaughlin, a local comedic genius that also blogs here on LobShots from time to time.

 

So great. “I meant fantasy baseball.” The second is from local radio legend Chris Cantore.

Nothing better than walking up to the Zelda kid and calling him Peter Pan.

Love Comic Con. I hope I make it downtown for some people watching this weekend.

Did Young Randy Jones Look Like Jake Peavy?

peavy-jones

I know the uniform side-by-side helps, but I think they kinda look alike. I posed that question last night on twitter, and Randy Jones himself responded to me in the best way ever. “No Way. Get your eyes checked Meat!” So great. Haha. Check out the exchange below. Pretty good. Love the crafty lefty.

Randy Jones once punched me on live TV, so this response is not shocking.

Bring back the brown.
