Good morning, everyone!

Thank you so much for baring with me through the past two days. My wife and I picked up and moved to her home state of Minnesota on Wednesday and it was one hellish experience because that always seems to be how moving goes, right? I feel like half a corpse, but I’m happy to be back to begin the last month we have to get through before there’s real (preseason) NFL football to be had.

With that in mind, I want to kick this Friday off with a discussion on what you all do during this “dead period” of the offseason when it comes to killing time or attempting to scratch that itch for Chargers football when there isn’t any to be had.

Do any of you play the Madden video games to get by? Do you watch old games and highlights? How many of you fill that void with a little “retail therapy” by going and grabbing a new jersey or hat? All of these things are great options to fill that need, but if you’ve got your own unique method to getting by in July, I want to hear about it! Let me know how you survive in the comments below!

And now for today’s links.
