I just came back from San Diego. Well, I've been home since Tuesday, but it feels like I just got back. First, I need to say San Diego is a beautiful city, but the fans are apathetic, at best. Everyone I met had a sort of disdain for the team, even the fans. Towards the coach, towards the owner, towards the stadium, and even towards Rivers. And while I mention Qualcomm, they are in desperate need of a stadium. It had the look and feel of a high school gym abandoned since the 70s. The screens were terrible. The replays were horrific. Again, it's like they haven't upgraded since 1987. At the game, I personally had no trouble with any fans. Although when it hit 0:00, most ran out of the stadium like they had a warrant out for them. But even with the terrible stadium experience, I thought it was a great trip. Brees won in San Diego. The bye is at a perfect time. And the city was beautiful. Although, by the feeling I get from everyone around, 2016 may be the last season for San Diego and the NFL.

Just imagine if the Saints were 3-0 heading to San Diego. We might very well have had more fans at the stadium then Charger fans. :hihi:

Mine were taken about a half hour/45 minutes before kickoff. By the time the game started, it felt like a home game for the Saints. I don't even think Qualcomm sold out. The announced attendance was only 60,000.

Here is the best part of San Diego:
That's no joke...I love that beer and brewery!

SD really is a beautiful city. I got to see the Oilers play the Saints in the astrodome back in the day and it was in better shape than Qualcomm is now. It's the last of those old school stadiums and it definitely is time to tear it down. I hope though that the City approves the stadium vote coming up. It would almost be a shame to move to Los Angeles.

They claim to have the best climate in the world and I think they're right.

L.A. is a pit.

Man, I loved SAN Diego when I was stationed there. I lived off base and would run to work every morning through Balboa Park. On the weekends the park is packed full of events during the summer. The SD Zoo is the most awesome in the USA and it can take you 2 days to see it all. I really enjoyed my time there. It's a beautiful city...
