Halloween Frights and Sights

When the Raiders come to town, it’s always a freak show…and not because it’s the day after Halloween.  Raider fans typically paint their faces silver and black, wear funny outfits and act strangely.  I know. I used to be one…let me clarify…I used to be a Raider season ticket holder.  So, I am well aware of the oddities that usually accompany a visit from the Raiders, like the time I witnessed a Raider fan fighting a Charger fan in the parking lot…now, here’s the strange part…the Charger fan somehow extricates himself from the fracas and another Raider fan jumps in and takes his place in the fight.  Now, there are two Raider fans fighting each other.  Strange, but true.

Unfortunately for fans of a competitive fight, there was no such excitement on the field this past Sunday, where the Chargers defeated the Raiders, 24 – 16.  The final score was somewhat deceiving in that the Raiders never really threatened the Chargers after giving up a 21 – 10 halftime lead.

Now let us turn our attention to the real reason why we are all here…the Charger Girls in Halloween costumes!  A Halloween game is one of the most eagerly anticipated because of those sexy outfits.  Our Arizona Cardinals Correspondent, Max, made the trek out west to experience the festivities in person…even though there was Cardinals game on the same day.  Now you know this must be a special event to do that.  And it really is, because the Charger Girls go all out in dressing up for Halloween.

Since this was a special week, I decided to stay the entire game and photograph all of the girls for your benefit.  So, this week, I am going to do something different and show the girls and their Line Captain in the order that they appeared before my section.  But, before we get to that, let me start off this week by introducing my choice for Charger Girl of the Day, Line Captain Marlina.

This loss to the Chargers, the thirteenth straight, must be frightening for Raider fans.  Let’s face it.  The Raiders are an organization in disarray, without the leadership or guidance to compete at the highest levels in the NFL.  And that’s a shame, because they were one of the flagship teams of the old AFL and Al Davis was instrumental in the merger with the NFL.  Unfortunately, the game has passed him by.

For Charger fans, we have the Charger Girls, who sustained us during our lean years.  And on this day, the Charger Girls, not play the on the field, were the sight to see. If you weren’t there, you missed something special.

Not So Special Team Play Dooms Chargers

Monday Night Football, a packed house, and the first place Denver Broncos coming to town meant that this game was going to be special.  The Denver Broncos sported an undefeated record and the league’s best defense, but all against several teams considered amongst the worst in the NFL.  Surely, the defending AFC West Champion Chargers would be a truer test of whether the Broncos were for real or merely a product of a weak schedule.  The Chargers and Broncos battled back and forth for three quarters, but poor special teams play doomed the Chargers. Journeyman Eddie Royal to return a punt and a kickoff for touchdowns as the Broncos carried the day, 34 – 23.

Well, if the game wasn’t so special, the Charger Girls throwback uniforms were certainly very special.  I see that they have taken their old throwback uniforms and given them a sexier makeover by cropping the top just a bit.  And I like the color scheme.  The girls looked quite nice in yellow and blue.  See for yourself.

This week’s Charger Girl of the Day really stood out the in images I captured.  Her dance ability, photogenic good looks and vivacious personality made quite an impression, introducing Heather.

Well, I must say the way the Chargers played was nothing special, but the way the Charger Girls looked in their Charger Girl throwback uniforms…that was quite special, indeed.  And in two weeks, we get to see the Hottest Dance Team in the NFL performing in their Halloween costumes.  The last time we featured the Charger Girls in these provocative outfits, we had one of the highest number of hits on our old website.  So, see you in two weeks.
