We lose to the raiders twice? We lose to Kansas City on opening day? We don’t make the playoffs? This year was embarrassing. This is the first year in forever that this January I’m not waiting for the other shoe to drop. Nope, the Chargers broke hearts in December.
To the Chargers I say you are the best team that never was. You are all potential, hopes, dreams, that little feeling that keeps me buying lottery tickets. The idea that somehow this whole shebang will come together and realize itself into a glorious array of victory and feelings of warmth and goodness keep me going. One day I will find out where the championship victory parade would be in San Diego. Or I can just wait until Comic Con gets a parade and assume it’s the same route. Either way, I still have hope for next season and the season after that. We are victorious if we go 2-14 as long as we beat the raiders twice. Who are the Chargers and what do we stand for? We really should run more.
