Chargers Flag Football: Raider Haters Victorious

After a poll that was much closer than I was hoping for, the Raider Haters defeated the regrettably named Hat Eaters gathering nearly three times as many votes. While I'm disappointed in the 60 or so of you that voted for John's clearly inferior squad, I won't sink to John's level by comparing you to people that voted for the Nazis.

Instead, let us celebrate the fact that 74%* of the people that chose to vote in our poll were able to think critically enough to come to the correct answer. Thank you** for indulging us in this competition and may real football news prevent us from having to do anything like this for at least another year.

Before we put this all behind us, I have to ask: how many of you voted for John out of pity? We set the over/under internally at 4.5 and I'm really curious.

Also, I'm more of a liquor guy than a beer guy, so I'd like to hear suggestions on what I should demand as my prize for winning.

*This number was likely held down by the fact that Raider fans and people I've banned from our community were eligible to vote and no doubt supported John unanimously.

**Also, thank you for buying into my assertion of the importance of having a real center.
