A Monday Night Football game always brings a lot of excitement to the stadium. It also brings a lot of sidelines clutter with extra media, extra game personnel, extra security and extra sidelines “guests”. So, it was rather difficult to get nice, clean shots of the Charger Girls. And it was a tad dark, being a night game.
Maybe I’m a little too critical because some people need to be there to work the game. But it seems to me that there are way too many people cluttering up the sidelines and it gets worse every year. And when you consider the sight lines at Qualcomm where the first nine rows of the Field Level are considered obstructed view, people like me who sit in these seats are cheated of a view of the game.
About the only good view we get is of the Chargers Girls. Now I am not complaining because I purchased these seats knowing these constraints…it’s just that when I first bought these obstructed view seats in 1999, they were about 50 percent off the cost of a pair of seats where you could see the field.
I shouldn’t complain too much because these seats offer a million dollar view of the Charger Girls…but as this year has shown, even my view of the venerable Charger Girls is becoming more and more problematic. And that infamous “keep off the grass” fence returned to the sidelines this week.
Oh well. Here are some additional photos of the Hottest Dance Team in the NFL that didn’t make it into the original article.
