San Diego, Ca- Ok so heres the challenge. If your not immediately a fan of the team with the advantage you root for the underdog. The problem is that the underdog is Eli Manning who really didn't want to play in San Diego when we drafted him first and then traded him to New York. I still remember that look on his face and I thought wow, that's the face of a spolied millionaire football kid. LAME!!!
After watching him play lately I can't help but be impressed with his fortitude on the road and the fact that he's just trying to do his job especially since he has been following in his brothers footsteps and Peyton just lost to the San Diego Chargers in the playoffs.
As for the New England Patriots and Bill Belichec they have a tendency to hire former Chargers. Junior Seau, Rodney Harrison, Doug Flutie, etc. The great interview that Junior had in the San Diego Union Tribune was just fantastic as well as his post game speech after they beat us. Where he basically stated... I will always be a Charger.
So there it is former Chargers with a Charger at heart who made it to the Superbowl before but played a superior team or the guy who just would rather die before he played in San Diego. Since I'm not betting I'll take a little piece of San Diego at the big game.
