The second preseason game of the year for the San Diego Chargers and Seattle Seahawks kicks off an hour from this post going live, and there's actually plenty to be excited about (in the first half, anyway).
Last week the open thread got kind of sluggish after the first 1000 or so comments, so Richard will be around to create a second-half thread and then a post-game recap (also to be used as a post game open thread) later on. Richard is also in charge, so don't use the sarcasm font or do anything else to piss him off. [Editor's Note: that's good advice always, not just when John is away.]
I will, unfortunately, be missing the live broadcast of the game, but will return with my notes and thoughts this weekend after I have a chance to watch the replay.
