In this edition of Flashback Friday, we feature what is a rarity in Southern California…1) rain and 2) the Chargers in the NFL playoffs. It rarely rains in Southern California and in all the years that I have been going to Charger games, it has only rained three or four times. And “rain” is a misnomer. Those “rain” games were more of intermittent, light showers because if it was a slow and steady rain…I wouldn’t be there…not with thousands of dollars of photographic equipment at risk.
In this photo from January 6, 2008 we feature one of the most popular Charger Girls ever…Marlina Moreno, who was performing in the rain at the 2008 Wildcard Playoff game against the Tennessee Titans. And who says California sunshine boys can’t play in the rain…the Chargers held the Titans to two Rob Bironas field goals in route to a 17-6 victory.
