Last Sunday, the Philadelphia Eagles flew into town to play the resurgent Chargers. They must have suffered from jet lag because when the game mattered, Philly’s finest kicked four field goals in response to the Chargers scoring four touchdowns. Reports of LaDainian Tomlinson’s demise proved to be premature, as the former league MVP gashed the Eagles for 96 yards and two touchdowns. Donovan McNabb threw for 450 yards and two late touchdowns, but that was not enough to catch the Chargers who defeated the Eagles, 31 – 23.
With the win, the Chargers move into a first place tie for the AFC West with the fading Denver Broncos. As for the Eagles, the loss drops them into a second place tie with the New York Giants in the ultra competitive NFC East.
Well, I must say that Eagle fans really support their team as thousands of green jersey clad fans descended upon the aging confines of Qualcomm stadium to cheer on their team. As if I needed any help, I was reminded that the word “eagles” is spelled, E-A-G-L-E-S!!! Yes, I applaud their feisty spirit. Now, let us turn our attention to some Chargers spirit.
Nothing beats California Girls, even if some of them are transplants from Montana, Missouri, Ohio and Texas. Oh well, I digress. Well, let’s start off this week’s coverage with the Line Captains: Marisa, Tonya, Ashlie, and Marlina.
And let me introduce this week’s Charger Girl of the Day…Line Captain Marisa.
Qualcomm Stadium was packed and a rousing crowd of Eagles and Chargers fans made this game feel like the playoffs. It must have been quite an exhilarating experience for first year Charger Girls, Andrea, Belinda, Brittany R., Emily, and Tiffany.
When it was time to get the crowd fired up, veteran Charger Girls Ashley, Brittany W., Carly N., Giselle, Heather, and Vanesa led the way.
And here are a few photos of Casie, Jacquelyn, Nicole M., Kimberly, Tiffany, Natalie, and Victoria to round out our coverage of the Hottest Dance Team in the NFL.
And here’s a photo of the Charger Girls performing their second quarter break dance routine.
Also spotted on the sidelines was former Charger Girl Ashley W., who was one of the Charger Girl coordinators this week. As readers may know, she and her mom are the primary reasons why I am a contributor to this blog. You can read more about her here.
I hope the Eagles fans enjoyed their trip out west. The weather was nice, San Diego’s beaches were inviting, and California Girls…incomparable. And by the way, its spelled C-H-A-R-G-E-R-S!!!
