Yes, it's true. I have a deep, abiding disgust for She-li Manning which stems from he & his talentless father thumbing their noses at the best team in the NFL. Nothing would bring me greater pleasure than the opportunity of seeing She-li eating turf all afternoon at the hands of Merriman, SP, English, etc. Seeing his passes batted down by Castillo, Jamal, & "Vicious" Martin. Watching Jammer, Cro, Weddle, & Co. intercepting his girlie passes.
I'm a Virginia-based Bolt fan, so I don't get to see these guys very often. My first game in person was last year's game against KC at the Q. Met some great folks from other Charger forums & had a ball watching us beat KC (did I mention that my wife is a Chiefs' fan? She didn't enjoy the outcome as much as I did!!!!). I became a Bolts fan because of my admiration for Stan the Man & Coach Ross, who is a native Virginian & lives close by.
Transportation to the game will be a cinch. I'll either drive up or take the train. Lodging - no problem. I can stay with friends in NJ or get a room. I'm plenty old enough to drink, loud enough to handle the crowd, & smart enough to know not to start any trouble. And my birthday is 11/2, so this would be a great present!!
Last but not least - I'm friends with Ross Warner, who lives in Long Island & runs the Charger web site Justice Is Coming. He might be able to arrange some player interaction for us. In addition to knowing Ross, I also work with a guy who is formerly a KC native & knows Darren quite well. He taught him in school & Darren is a good friend of his son. So ...... connections exist, possibilities are endless.
Whadda ya say? Please give me a chance to hurl obscenities at She-li in person. I'll even make signs if you like!!
