Chargers Tailgating

Chargers vs Lions

Sunday, September 13 – 9:30am

Section D3 – Qualcomm Stadium

For 23 years the D3 Tailgate has been lighting grills, drinking beer, playing bad music, crowning Iron Tailgaters and Iron Bartenders, singing Oh Canada, tossing bags into little holes on pieces of wood, and welcoming football fans from Mexico, The Great White North, Germany, Norway, England, Colombia, Australia, Spain, New Zealand, Brasil, Switzerland, and good folks from most NFL cities.

How’s that for a run-on sentence?

Sunday is a throwback tailgate of sorts. No beer sponsors (although we are in the market), no caterer. Just you, your favorite beverage, the grill and the best pregame crew in the NFL … the D3 Tailgate.

D3 Tailgate






The theme is simple:


Bring some grub, beer, some Motown tunes and let’s kick off our Super Bowl season in style.

Chargers in a good place at the right time.

For the first time in many seasons, the San Diego Chargers aren’t behind the pigskin in December. But by the NFL calendar, it’s a long month, and that could all change before the mistletoe gets taken down.

The Bolts are 8-4 with a firm hold on the first wildcard playoff spot. The win last week was without question the most impressive of the season. It was on the road, against a strong team, in a very tough place to snap the ball. It also came with the pressure of maintaining a place in the playoff race. The obstacles were Everest-like, and it was only the first weekend in December. That’s how murky the playoff picture is this season, and not even Bob Ross could paint around this kind of obscurity. “That’s a pretty tree, a nice, tall … wait … that’s a rock … or is it a bear? Damnit I can’t make that out. F#@$ it.”

However, well in frame stand the Chargers. And the most prominent figure in the yellow, blue and white is #17, Philip Rivers, who in the last two weeks has been piling up absurd passing stats in games that appeared to be out of reach until the last minute, and with an interception thrown in each. Somehow, the guy so many colleges recruited as a tight-end out of high school is now Top 20 all time in NFL passing yards and leads the Chargers, an original AFL franchise, in team wins.

(If one more person on our Facebook page mentions Jamies Winston, not only will they be banned, but so will every member of their family for ten times infinity forever.)

But let’s not forget the defense, especially in the redzone. Holding the Ravens to so many field goals was the deciding factor in the Chargers comeback. The last stand was a bold one. Prior to the Oakland game a few weeks ago, the Chargers were one of the league’s worst in redone defense. Now they are second in the league. What has led to that turn-around? A finally healthy defense.

This year, it looks like things have coalesced at the right time. At a crucial time of the year, we have the Pats and Donkey’s at home, a vibrant defense and a rip-roaring quarterback.

No doubt, this is a new feeling for Chargers fans. This weekend’s tailgate will have the same energy, of course. Because … well, you know why.
