Since the Chargers spent the vast majority of their 60-season history in San Diego, you may feel better qualified than Los Angeles fans to determine their top moment ever.
Especially since all the finalists for that moment actually took place in San Diego. But online voting closes at 11:59 p.m. Saturday, so hurry!
The now-Los Angeles Chargers will make the big reveal, as selected by a fan vote, at halftime of Sunday’s game against the Houston Texans at Dignity Health Sports Park in Carson.
Fans can choose from four finalists for the top Charger moment:
- The team’s 1963 American Football League championship;
- Their 41-38 overtime victory over the Miami Dolphins in an AFC divisional playoff game on Jan. 2, 1982;
- Their 17-13 upset of the Pittsburgh Steelers in the AFC championship game on Jan. 15, 1995, and
- LaDainian Tomlinson setting the NFL’s single-season touchdown record on Dec. 10, 2006.
The team also will conduct their annual Legends Game Sunday, honoring past players.
As part of the special weekend, the Chargers will host the “Fantennial Bolts Bash” at The Grove in Los Angeles from 5-7 p.m. Saturday.
Football Hall of Famers Tomlinson and Charlie Joiner, and other retired Chargers, including Wes Chandler and Antonio Cromartie, are set to appear. In addition, the event will feature live performances by the Chargers Girls and Thunderbolts Drumline.
Fans are encouraged to RSVP on the team website.
All 32 NFL teams will hold Fantennial Weekends this season to mark the league’s 100th season.
