Editor’s Note: I have been covering the Ontario Fury and their predecessor organization, the Anaheim Bolts for several years now and Lynae de Leon has a knack of developing dance talent that make it onto major league dance teams in the NFL and NBA. This past season, four of her 2015-2016 Ladies of Ontario Fury dancers (Sativa-Skye, McKenzie, Lizzie and Kellie) made it to the Rams Cheerleaders, 49ers Gold Rush, Clippers Spirit and Sacramento Kings Dancers. And several others on that squad were finalists.

So if you are an aspiring professional cheerleader, you might want to hone your skills with Lynae de Leon and the Ladies of Ontario Fury.

The Chargers Ride The Jaguars To Victory

Tour De Force: \ˌtu̇r-də-ˈfȯrs\ noun – an impressive performance or achievement that has been accomplished or managed with great skill.

This past Sunday, the Jacksonville Jaguars roared into town to play the San Diego Chargers, who were fresh off a disappointing meltdown loss to the Kansas City Chiefs.    Things would be different this week as the Chargers stormed out to a 35 point lead and never took their foot off the accelerator.  Philip Rivers threw four touchdown passes, tying a career high, and Melvin Gordon ran for 102 yards and another score.  A strong defensive effort by the home team doomed the hapless Jaguars, who crossed midfield only six times during the game.  This game was over at half time.

Final Score: Navy Blues – 38, Teal Blues – 14.

However, the news wasn’t all good.  For the second week in a row, the Chargers lost a key player for the year due to injury.  Versatile running back Danny Woodhead tore his ACL and joined Keenan Allen on injured reserved.  Who’s next?  Philip Rivers?

Well…on to the good stuff…the hottest dance team in the NFL, your San Diego Charger Girls!

I play fantasy football (five championships and counting!) and I have never seen a beginning to a season like this, where there have been so many serious injuries to key players…star players. It’s mind boggling. Let’s hope this misfortune doesn’t plague our favorite sideline entertainers, our beloved cheerleaders.

Okay, let’s begin this week’s coverage of the Charger Girls with the Captains: Marissa, Delani, Bridget, and Teran.

Flashback Friday – Arizona Cardinals Cheerleader Rachael

ACC15R3V005

This is a photo of Arizona Cardinals Cheerleader Rachael from last season. Flash forward seventh months and I am in Miami covering the 2016 Miami Dolphins Cheerleaders auditions and who do I see…Rachael. I guess her husband got a new job and they relocated to Miami.

So, Arizona’s loss is Miami’s gain. And yes, she made the squad.

I took this photo back in 2009 and I rather like this uniform…much more so than what the Gold Rush wear nowadays.

The Charger Girls Salute To The Military – NFL Preseason Week 4

The Chargers closed preseason against the San Francisco 49ers in their annual Salute to the Military game.  Special performances and appearances by current and former military personnel highlighted the festivities.  San Diego is a military town and the irony was not lost in that this game would be played against the 49ers, whose controversial quarterback, Colin Kaepernick would be heavily featured.

In a surprisingly high scoring affair for a week 4 preseason game, the Chargers took a 21 – 9  lead into the fourth quarter only to surrender three touchdowns to lose the game.

Final Score: Sourdough Sams – 31, Bolt Men – 21.

Okay, so 49er Christian Ponder was a star for a day while leading his team to victory, but in the whole scheme of things, none of this really mattered as anyone of significance, except for the aforementioned Colin Kaepernick, did not play.  What does this mean?   Not a whole lot.  Anyone who made a difference in this game is not likely to be on the team come the regular season and if they are and playing meaningful minutes…your team has big time trouble…including the aforementioned Colin Kaepernick.  This was a scrub city game, through and through.

For me, the highlight of the evening was seeing the Charger Girls in military themed uniforms. Woo! Hoo!

CGs16P4v04CGs16P4v02CGs16P4v01Now before we all get excited and everything, I want to take time to mention the lengths I had to go to get these shots. Once again, the game management people, in all their wisdom (sarcasm) decided to place a HUGE stage with flood lights in front of my section, which virtually obliterated our view of not only the field, but the Charger Girls as well.

Stage2016Yeah…that’s my seat with the clear bag…and you can imagine the view at eye level.  (Click on the image above to see my field of view.)

This has become an ongoing issue over the years, but as long as they continue to obstruct the view of our section, I will mention this stupidity for all to read.   Good luck in getting my vote for the new billion dollar stadium ballot measure.  Of course my vote wouldn’t matter, because I live in Los Angeles….LOS ANGELES.  Maybe it will someday…when they move up here and want another public subsidy.

Okay, I’m stepping off my soap box…until next time…which I hope is next season, but I fully expect it to be sometime later this season when all of this happens again.

So let’s begin this week’s coverage of the hottest dance team in the NFL with the Captains: Marissa, Delani, Bridget, and Teran.

Chargers Kick the Cardinals into Submission – NFL Preseason Week 2

On Friday, the Arizona Cardinals flew into town to play the San Diego Chargers in a game that saw the home team mount a stout defense and kick four field goals en route to a 19-3 victory.  But before we get ahead ourselves, this was a preseason game and the starters for both teams played sparingly.  This contest looked like a typical preseason game…lots of errors and uninspired play.  On their second series, Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer threw an interception to defensive back Brandon Flowers, who returned the pass for a pick six.  That would be the only points needed to win the game for the boys in blue and there were more than 50 minutes of game time yet to play.  Several Charger drives sputtered to a premature end, forcing them to kick four field goals…which was a good thing for Josh Lambo fans, but for most of us the lack of big play touchdowns was somewhat of a disappointment.

But hey…its a preseason game. And I didn’t drive 120 miles to see second and third string football players struggle to secure a roster spot. No, I came to see the new crop of Charger Girls and I was not disappointed.

For the San Diego Chargers, 2016 is a season of change. I know several season ticket holders, long time fans, who have changed their allegiance and no longer support the team because of the attempt to relocate to Los Angeles. That may still happen and judging by the number of empty seats at Qualcomm stadium, things look bleak. And while the Chargers are desperately trying to secure approval and funding for a downtown San Diego stadium project, that seems to be a long shot at best. So what does the future bode for the home team? No one knows for sure…but things cannot remain the same.

We hope that it is a season of change for the play on the field. Melvin Gordon, the second year running back, has looked surprisingly good this preseason. We hope that he is fully recovered from microfracture surgery and becomes the dynamic back that fans hoped he would be when he was drafted last year. And there is a new sense of urgency and hopefulness in that the team can be competitive in an AFC West division that looks more open than ever and that success on the field can propel voters to approve the downtown stadium ballot measure in November.

For what is the alternative if the ballot measure fails? Will the Chargers take the NFL’s one year offer to move to Inglewood’s two billion dollar stadium? Or will the Raiders snatch the option to relocate to Los Angeles if the Chargers pass on the opportunity. And if they do, what does that mean for the Chargers. Will Southern California support three NFL franchises within 100 miles of each other? Certainly there are the numbers…people and dollars, sure…but that’s a tough sell if you don’t put a competitive product on the field and we all know what happens to teams that don’t.

So, this year is shaping up to be monumental for the Chargers…the team and its fans.


Let’s see if I got this correct and start our coverage off with the 2016 Line Captains: Marissa (welcome back!), Delani, Bridget and Teran.
