Morning Dump

The San Diego Chargers, a team linked to several rumors of a possible relocation to Los Angeles and a franchise which has failed to meet expectations in recent seasons committed a major error recently. In a move to try to sell tickets, the Chargers organization had to admit to sending out an email to Kansas City Chiefs fans to purchase tickets to the Chargers-Chiefs game in San Diego on November 1. To add insult to injury, Chiefs fans were offered a discount to purchase game tickets at Qualcomm Stadium.

Inside linebacker Donald Butler and safety Darrell Stuckey will act as honorary captains for Friday’s Alex Spanos All-Star Classic, a prep football game featuring recently graduated stars. The games pits North County talents against the rest of the San Diego Section.

The Chargers didn’t trail the entire afternoon and withstood a furious comeback effort by Kansas City in defeating the Chiefs, 20-17, at Qualcomm Stadium. San Diego led 10-0 at the break after a dominating first two quarters in which they held the Chiefs to just 34 total yards and no first downs. The Chiefs rallied to get within three points late in the fourth quarter and had the ball with a chance to tie or take the lead, but Eric Weddle sealed the victory for the Chargers with an interception at the Bolts’ 49-yard line and just 55 seconds left, allowing the offense to take a couple of kneel-downs to close out the win.
