I met a Chargers Player after the Playoff Game

San Diego is football crazy right now. In case you are living under a rock, the Chargers won the playoff game last night in overtime.

I went to Stingaree after the game. This is, apparently, the favorite party place for the players after a winning game. And I can see why. Stingaree plays the “San Diego Super Chargers” song, and has their go-go-girl/waitresses dance around the football players with sparklers and bottles of champagne. No kidding. It’s all very over-the-top, but fun.

Anyway, through some luck or oversight, I ended up in the VIP area upstairs… standing next to Vincent Jackson and a female friend whose waist was about as small as my hand. I briefly said “congratulations, great game,” then didn’t bother him. I then witnessed him receiving sycophantic accolades from a lot of drunk men… which he did with an amazing amount of patience and grace.

I don’t want to give the impression that I was “hanging out” with the football players. It was a completely strange and happy coincidence. And a good night.
