Last night, Tila Tequila Nguyen went on a Twitter diatribe regarding the man who allegedly battered and falsely imprisoned her on Sunday morning. But the torrent of tweets regarding Chargers linebacker Shawne Merriman has been deleted, presumably on advice of counsel. (Or maybe she was just drunk.) Thanks to the web site known as Tweleted.com, however, the deleted entries can be viewed by entering Nguyen's Twitter handle, "OfficialTila." She vowed that she would address the situation on Tuesday, calling it "judgment day." It remains to be seen whether she follows through on her now-erased (sort of) promise.

Sure, the Chargers are a tease with all that talent, but they have won three playoff games in the past two seasons, and only the New York Giants with their storybook 4-0 Super Bowl run in 2007 have won more. The Chargers shouldn't really break a sweat in making it four consecutive AFC West titles in a row -- and five out of six -- but they don't like to make things easy on themselves. San Diego's start could be tough, with games against Baltimore, Miami and Pittsburgh in the first month, but the Chargers will be there and be heard from in January once again.

Folks around town rooting for Nwagbuo

Tod Leonard. SDUT Nwagbuo wowed Mike Pompa, Southwestern's head coach in 2005, with his athleticism. "Anybody who can play defensive line in football and power forward in basketball is a tremendous athlete," Pompa said. "You don't see that combination very often."

Anybody notice that without Travis Johnson Houston got burned on their first play by AP? His job was to eat up blocks there. Here it's to get to the QB (and eat up blockers)
