I love San Diego. Anyone who knows me or chats with me online knows this after about .0001 seconds. I am the first to say how narcissistic I am about my town and how I could use a lesson in humility when it comes to San Diego. But really, folks. It wasn't dubbed America's Finest City for nothing. We have beautiful year round weather, beaches and landscaping. We have endless activities, we are family friendly and are a great vacation destination.
The general population of people you meet in San Diego are friendly, laid back, and simply take a moment to enjoy the scenery around them. You wont typically hear horns blaring, people yelling or feel a general tension in the air to instantly raise your blood pressure. We love our outdoor activities and have a strong sense of a healthy lifestyle. This place? Screams SurferWife.
We kinda suck, San Diego.
Every time I go to a Padres game the stadium is never full. And even worse? Whenever I go, the opposing team has more fans than the Padres do. Are you shitting me? This is ridiculous and embarrassing. Here we have this beautiful new stadium in the heart of the gaslamp and we have Giants fans, and Phillies fans, and Rockies fans running rampant through it. Why in the hell would the Padres want to perform for us when at a home game the opposing team gets more love? Is that inspiring to them?
Let's now speak of the big tacky elephant sitting in the middle of this blog post. The Chargers and the constant threat of them fleeing town for *close your eyes* Los Angeles.
Let me state for the record that this would be the biggest sucker punch to our hearts, San Diego. The Chargers, once upon a time were the LA Chargers and let's be real for a moment. That was stupid. They were stupid. Everything about it was stupid. Los Angeles is not a good look on a San Diegan.
And before all of you sparkly LA people start yelling at me, I am so allowed to say this because *close your eyes again* I was born in LA. I am a Los Angeles Native. My little naked SurferWife butt was nearly born on Mulholland Drive one fateful night in the back of a creeper, white, molester van. So yes, I AM in fact, entitled to have strong opinions about both cities.
Back to the Chargers now. Stop thinking about my naked butt. We San Diegans that claim to be Chargers fans? We are all up in arms and shocked and appalled that the Chargers may leave. But people, how come every single week there is threat of a black out to The Charger game because we can't sell enough seats to our home games? Really? Every week, the news stations, radio stations and every media outlet has to beg our town to buy tickets to our beloved Chargers?
Are you kidding me? If I had to beg you B-Holes to support me like a big lameass I'd hit the pavement, too. Especially if the enemy promised me new fancy digs and faithful fans.
What Los Angeles wants, Los Angeles gets. It's the land of entitlement and if we can't support and defend our beloved pro sports teams, they will take one of them. And rightfully so.
Let's get our shit together San Diego, we seem to forget that we have more greatness than just our weather, citizens and tourism. We have The Padres and we have The Chargers. Instead of just talking about how lame it would be if they left, let's actually take some action and support. Go buy your tickets now, folks.
You don't want the wrath of SurferWife on you. Trust.
