Ahoj, Chargers Fans!

I’m not that big of a sports fan, really. I enjoy watching sports but following teams and reading about sports doesn’t do much for me. Football was created to give people a reason to go to bars on Sunday and hang out with their buddies. Over the course of my time in San Diego I did gradually become a Chargers fan, though. Here in Prague, I haven’t given much thought to American Football, but this morning I decided to pop over to espn.com and see how badly the home team was sucking this year. That they would be sucking was not a question.

Hold on there, Sparky! Since I left the country, the Chargers have won every game! There they are, sitting atop their division. Playoff contenders. Respected by the league. It’s a topsy-turvy world, all right.

Just for giggles, I matched my travel as I wandered around the country with the team’s record. With only one exception, the team lost when I was in San Diego and won when I was elsewhere. So take up a collection, Chargers fans! Operators are standing by, ready to take your donations to the Keep Jerry in Prague Fund. (Please note that past performance is no guarantee of future results—but compared to the Charger’s usual record, don’t you think it’s worth taking a chance?)

In the meantime, čau!

  1. Hey, how are you? First, Amazon denies all knowledge of wanting to help you, so you might want to fix that. Secondly, I just joined the writing program forum. Thirdly, my husband liked your EULA so much he’s adding that people have to make him brownies and send them through the mail to him when his program’s done (he’s working on an MMORPG with a bunch of friends.

    My Dad used to be a huge ‘Niners fan in the 80’s and 90’s. He’d yell at the television and crack walnuts for the freezer while doing so. Well, time went on, and he ended up with a nutcracker that wasn’t so hard on his hands, but he still yelled at the T.V. Though, since they suck, now, he’s wandered away to do things like video edit the trips he and my mother take with very dull yet informative voiceovers.

    You now know too much about me.

    I hope the Chargers win. Why? Because “Amurkin Fubbawl” (phonic spelling — :D) needs another winner who came from the trenches. Of course, we have the Sacramento Kings in our neck o’ the woods. They’re like a teenaged virgin– right when you think they’re going to make it, they seize up and then everything just… ends painfully and anticlimactically.

    Please Add me to the Beta Testing list by the way. From what I’ve seen of the novel-writing program, I am in deep and utter awe.

  2. Luckily the Chargers had an early game, so the beer sleepies haven’t caught up to me yet. Come on, Chargers fans! Take up a collection, or I’ll be back for the playoffs!

    Don’t make me come back there!

  3. And in news of the really bizarre: The Dolphins, who had only won two games all season so far, just beat the Patriots, who had only lost one (or maybe two) so far. Meanwhile, the Packers Sunday afternoon clinched a playoff berth before even setting foot on the field, because five other teams lost either Saturday or in early Sunday games.
