San Diego, Super Chargers!

This is only the second time in my life I have been to a Chargers/NFL game. I think that the best part of the game is tailgating beforehand.  After paying the 25$(!) to park it took us quite some time, and some unfortunate run-ins with parking staff, before we finally turned off the ignition. We had enough time to hurriedly pound drinks and veggie burgers before making our way inside.  Speed tailgating is better than NO tailgating!

Fred and I were interested in this particular game because my cousin, Nancy, and my cousin-in-law, Vinny, were in town for the weekend and Nancy had never been to an NFL game before (even though Vinny played in college and is a fan). 

Check out the lady behind the boys...someone's excited!

People at football games are a different breed. Look at the mask the guy in front of us was sporting...scary!

Can you believe that, according to the NFL, Qualcomm is not big enough to host a superbowl ? It holds 70,500 fans (and their wives).  Seems big enough to me.

Chargers vs. Vikings. 24-17. 
Let's go Chargers, let's go!

Until next time!

  1. I don't know if I've ever been to a Chargers game. By the looks of it, it was a gorgeous day and you guys really did the barbecue up in style. I love the 'side' photos and comments. What fun. Is it something that is a "twice in a lifetime" thing or do you think you'll go again? I'm a sofa fan myself! Looks like a great way to spend a Sunday. Thanks for sharing.
