Another Year, Another Season of NFL Football

Ah, preseason football!  It’s what a football fan eagerly awaits, the start of another year of football.  Well, not exactly for me.  Preseason football is, in a word, terrible.  But as a season ticket holder, I pay full price for these less than NFL caliber football games.  So, I was more interested in checking out the new Charger Girl squad than the Charger’s third and fourth stringers.  Let’s see how the new squad shapes up.

As a new season is upon us, let me introduce the 2009 Charger Girl Line Captains, Ashlie, Marlina, Marisa, and Tonya.

Last year, I introduced a new feature, the Charger Girl of the Day.  And this year, we will continue to recognize the Charger Girl who provided the most memorable photograph of the day.  Though I had a few to choose from, one image stood out.  Presenting this week’s CGOTD, rookie Amanda.

Author’s note:  a kindly reader pointed out that this lovely Charger Girl is actually named Victoria.  Unfortunately, I based my information on the Chargers.com original audition finals photo identification, as the organization has not updated their website with up to date Charger Girl bios.  Please forgive the confusion.

Let’s begin the introductions with the returning Veterans: Brittany W, Heather, Giselle, Jacquelyn, Nicole L., Nicole M., Ashley, Michelle, and Vanesa.

This year, there are thirteen rookie Charger Girls.  They are: Katherine, Lauren, Carly S., Belinda, Melanie, Tiffany, Amanda, Natalie, Kimberly, Andrea, Brittany R., Emily, and Kate.  Unfortunately, I did not see Kate on the sidelines, so there is no photo of her.

You may remember Casie from the NFL Cheerleader Playoffs a few years ago.  She and Shantel won the whole darn thing!  Glad to see her back in the uniform. Well, a new NFL season is upon us and I am eagerly awaiting the start of the regular season, when we get to see some real football.  But for now, I’ll have to content myself and pass the preseason by watching some real cheerleading.  Go Charger Girls!

    Thanks so much for all your wonderful pictures of the Charger Girls!
    My daughter is “Charger Girl Heather” and I always enjoy seeing the new photos after the games.
    And oh boy was it hot at the “Charger/ Raven” game!
    Stadium thermometer read 109 degrees.

    Thanks again for your great pics!

      Heather is one of my favorite Charger Girls to photograph. She’s beautiful, vivacious and extremely photogenic. You must be very proud of your daughter.
