The LA Chargers had some pretty big moments throughout the 2020 calendar year.
The LA Chargers may have had a very disappointing 2020 season but there was still plenty of storylines around the team. It was a busy year for us here at Bolt Beat, even in the dog days of the summer when the entire sports world was on a pause.
Before getting into this, I want to thank anyone that came to Bolt Beat for any Chargers coverage. I took over the site in March and it has been an absolute blast to write about the Chargers and interact with great Charger fans.
If you have read one of my articles or 100 of my articles: thank you. If you have loved most of them, hated most of them or never even realized what my name was: thank you, from the bottom of my heart. We could not have kept going in this crazy year without your support.
Let’s get into the biggest (not best) moments of 2020.
Honorable mentions: Canceling first televised practice at SoFi Stadium in response to the civil rights protests, trading for Trai Turner, signing Bryan Bulaga, Chris Harris and Linval Joseph, starring in HBO’s Hard Knocks alongside the Los Angeles Rams.
6. Unveiling the new LA Chargers uniforms
This sounds silly but it was a really big deal. It was such a big deal that I set my alarm and woke up much earlier than normal here on the West Coast just to see the like unveil on Good Morning Football.
There was so much hype and speculation about what the new uniforms were going to look like and the team’s marketing department did an excellent job of building the uniforms up. We were counting down the days!
And boy did they deliver. The Chargers hit a home run on the new uniforms, which can be hard to do when the existing ones were already so beautiful. At least the Bolts were the best-looking team in the league this season.
