San Diego Chargers Daily Links: January 31, 2012

The Five People You Meet At Every Super Bowl Party - Jon Bois
The Super Bowl is like every other holiday, in that it's rife with cliché and its participants are entirely predictable.

The Biggest Losers - Jay Clemons
The planets were aligned for head coach Marty Schottenheimer to experience a career breakthrough in 2006. The Chargers had a top-flight quarterback (Philip Rivers), formidable defense, supremely talented kicker (Nate Kaeding), the NFL's single greatest weapon (LaDainian Tomlinson), home-field advantage in the AFC playoffs and a path to the Super Bowl that didn't involve the notoriously stingy Ravens, who were upset by the Colts in the Divisional Playoff round.

Kris Dielman of the San Diego Chargers Should Retire: Fan Perspective - Deborah Braconnier

Chargers enjoy record-setting Pro Bowl win - Christopher Smith
Five of San Diego’s players contributed to a 59-41 win by the AFC on Sunday in Honolulu.

Barnes has been quite a find for San Diego. Signed off the street in 2010, Barnes has shown flashes of dominance as a pass-rusher. He had 11 sacks last season. Sack artists get a lot of love from Pro Bowl voters. If he had a big season in 2012, he could get a nod.

The Alot is Better Than You at Everything - Allie Brosh
As a grammatically conscientious person who frequents internet forums and YouTube, I have found it necessary to develop a few coping mechanisms. When someone types out "u" instead of "you," instead of getting mad, I imagine them having only one finger on each hand and then their actions seem reasonable. If I only had one finger on each hand, I'd leave out unnecessary letters too!
