The San Diego Chargers VS. The Oakland Raiders. I have never attended a professional football game. It was alot different than I expected.

I was excited about the game buzz until we got in the parking lot and realized there was no structure whatsoever to the way people were lining up to get in. It was every man for himself.

Then I looked around at all of the tailgate parties. It was like nothing I have ever seen before. Chargers and Raiders fans side by side grilling hamburgers, drinking beer, and having a great time.

The stadium was huge. Its funny, I was so worried about dressing in a Chargers shirt because I THOUGHT I was sitting on the Raiders side. appears the WHOLE stadium is the Chargers side. The Raider fans were a bit outnumberd.

DBF Michael was very excited for the game to start. He had high hopes for his Raiders!

You hear all of the trash talk about the Raider fans, but the Charger fans were just as bad. After alot of beer drinking, people started to get a bit carried away. Nothing major but you could definitely feel the tension between the fans.

In the end, the Chargers ended up beating the Raiders 34 to 7. I found myself rooting for both teams. DBF Michael was not happy with the score but I think we both had a nice time.

I would definitely do it again!
