First of all I want to say a big THANKS to all the guys here on BoltBeat! Everyone has been doing an awesome job keeping us updated on all the off-season antics while I have been busy doing other work and mommy stuff. Thanks guys! That said, I have a few minutes in between doing stuff for other people today and of course my mind wanders to football. I took a little field trip to the Q last week to see my new seats and let me tell you they are incredibly awesome. So awesome that I could have just sat there all day for the next few months until our first preseason kickoff. Unfortunately, they told me I could not live there for three months, so I had to leave. ?
I gotta tell you, having season tickets raises the excitement bar up a notch. It’s cool to know where I will be sitting for 10 home Charger games. The worst part is the waiting. It was already bad, but now that I have shady seats on the Chargers 40 yard line it’s excruciating!
The Chargers home regular season opener is Monday Nite Football on September 9th. This is so far away, almost four months! Nooooo! But don’t panic, there are preseason games, and they are at night, so no drenched in sweat football games. Our two home preseason games are on Thursday Nite Football. The first game in an entire month before the regular season opener, on Thursday, August 8th. Now, that’s only three months away. Not bad, but still too long. We still have OTA’s, Mini Camps and other off-season events to keep us from suffering too much. The guys are at Chargers Park right now getting ready. I am sure they think four months is too short, especially the rookies, so I will be patient.
On a side note, I’m thinking it would be super fun to invite a BoltBeat regular along to a game. I’m not sure what my plan is, but I’m thinking some sort of “why I’m the best Chargers fan and I promise I will not start a fight” comment in the comment field. I will put all the names into a hat and whichever one my dog grabs to chew on first gets a ticket.
I’ll keep you posted on that and other random stuff that is happening with our Bolts!
