It was hot in San Diego. Unseasonably hot. Blazing hot. This game, which on paper seemed to overwhelmingly favor the defending Super Bowl Champions, was really not all that competitive. I mean as the game progressed, it appeared that the Seahawks were being outplayed, out-muscled and out-executed, if that is a word. They just weren’t really in it after the second quarter and I think it was due to the heat because the Seahawks played like I felt…lifeless.
[Update: Per ESPN it was 118 degrees on the field.]
Final Score: Chargers – 30, Seahawks – 21.
Hot and bothered. I mentioned the heat. Now the “bother”. I was looking forward to this game. It was a day game. It was against the defending Super Bowl Champions and I was hoping to get some great shots of the Charger Girls in a mid afternoon game setting. When I arrived at my seats, my old nemesis was there again…the big, black mobile stage. The stage that I wrote about in the past. Anyway, not to rehash this issue, which you can read about it here, this was a bad thing. Essentially, preventing our section from seeing half of the game. Thus, the “bothered” portion of the title.
My apologies to the first two lines (Angela’s and Natalie’s ) as I did not get the type of images that I would have liked, but I did my best and managed to get a few keepers during the day.
I guess that’s how it’s gonna be sometimes. If there’s going to be a field performance with a stage, it’s going to be located in my section.
We begin our regular coverage of the Charger Girls with the Captains: Angela M., Natalie, Katelyn and Clarisse.
Our Charger Girl of the Day is one of the more popular Charger Girls and has developed a loyal fan following. And I count myself as one of them…introducing Shelbi.
