NEW ORLEANS — LaDainian Tomlinson is working at the Super Bowl.
His role, though, is backward from the one he envisioned.
The former Chargers running back sat Tuesday afternoon in the Superdome for Media Day. But instead of being a player at a podium, where he might discuss his teammates, he was behind a table at a media brunch, picking apart the outlook of his ex-team, particularly as it relates to quarterback Philip Rivers and running back Ryan Mathews.
Wherever you live as a Chargers fan, whether in southern California, New York, the Federated States of Micronesia, you don’t live completely in a Bolts fandom bubble. Chances are you have a high school buddy that’s a Redskins fan, an uncle that loves the Raiders or a co-worker that lives and dies with the Dolphins. So then what team would your non-Charger fan friends most likely root for?
