That bandwagon in San Diego is losing members by the minute. To be fair you can’t place all the blame on those lost souls in Charger country. Every year the media hypes their lackluster squad and every year they do what they do best – live up to Norv Turner’s mediocre expectations.
Last night might be the moment of clarity for the Charger fan base. After a near decade of dominating the Raiders and owning the AFC West, the San Diego Chargers are finally bottoming out. The Raiders have taken three straight from their SoCal rivals. Two of those three coming in Jack Murphy…or Qualcomm…or Petco…whatever…doesn’t really matter.
So distraught was one Charger chump that he couldn’t even make it home after the latest loss.

An 81-year-old Pacific Beach woman awoke to find a Chargers fan passed out on her couch this morning, according to San Diego police.
Officer Frank Cali of the San Diego Police Department said the woman living on the 1300 block of Thomas Avenue reported an unknown man estimated to be in his 20s and wearing a Chargers jersey was asleep in her living room at about 7:20 a.m.
The man was taken into custody and charged with being drunk in public.
Face it, San Diego. This pretty much sums up all you have to show for your misplaced, fair weather faith. Some fans at least get teased with a Super Bowl loss or even some regular season dominance topped off with an early playoff exit.
Instead, all you Dolt fans got was 2 for 1 deals on LaDainian Tomlinson jerseys so you and your beach skank could wear matching gear on Sundays and a free night’s rest on a elderly woman’s couch to sleep off your Raider hangover.
Thanks for playing guys. See you on the next rebuild.
