That Did Not Look Athletic is a weekly series that examines some of the least athletic plays from the previous week's Chargers game. This series is meant to give us a few laughs by showing that even the best athletes in the world have their moments of shame. It's also a reminder that you aren't a complete loser just because you punched at a tether-ball and fell down in front of a bunch of 3rd graders.
You people need to email me an un-athletic story. I'm not saying that I have writer's block just that the absence of a story from me shall serve as your penance for the week. Penance!
TDNLA: WEEK 4
I kind of like having the TDNLA awarded to a Chargers player during a week when the Bolts win. It allows for a pleasant bit of laughter because deep down inside . . . who cares! We won! And by "we" I mean the Chargers. And us!
Ah, winning. It is the elimination of suffering in one's life. Which brings us to Buddhism.
If you were to speak to a Buddhist he/she would impart the following piece of knowledge to you: "Om. It is the sound of the universe."
And as a non-Buddhist you might say: "Ohrn?"
Then the Buddhist would say: "Ohrn?"
The untrained eye might look at Philip Rivers and think to themselves, "Gahhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!"
But that would be a foolhardy assessment. Fans should have looked at the offensive line and Rich Ohrnberger and vocalized the following: "Gahhhhhhhhhhhh!!!"
Gahhhhhhhhhh!!! It is the sound of the universe.
