Hotter Than A California Wildfire

What’s hotter than a California wildfire?  The Charger Girls.  But before we begin our parade of sideline beauties, let me start with my annual rant about preseason football.

The third week of the NFL preseason is considered the best because the first string players usually play for a half or more.  In contrast, the fourth week of the preseason is considered the worst, since most teams rest their starters for fear of injuries.  So, what is left is a bunch of third and fourth stringers playing their hearts out to make the practice squad.  Frankly, its terrible football, but then again you get to see some things you would never see in a real game, like the Chargers trying an onside kick on the first play of the game…and recovering it.  Never happens in real life.

For those interested, the Chargers fourth stringers beat the 49er fourth stringers in dominating fashion, 26-7.  The significance of this win?  No starter was injured as a result of play.

Well, onto to what really matters.  The hottest dance team in the NFL, your Charger Girls!

I like shooting nice, tight close up shots of the Charger Girls and I rarely include a full body photo.  Well, I thought I would change things up and include one.  Here’s rookie Lauren showing off the full Charger Girl uniform and demonstrating the proper posing technique…notice the toe point.

Thankfully, preseason football has come to an end.  And while I love football, I can’t say that having four or five preseason games is a good thing, especially if you are going to charge full price admission to a game that is about as good as a Division IAA football.  The one thing that is worth the price of admission…the cheerleaders who give it their all at a game that is as meaningful as an intra squad scrimmage.

Thank you Charger Girls.
