Revenge A Dish Best Served Cold? – NFL Week 6 

Posted by David Allen Tyau at 11:30 AM ET

I think it’s fair to say that most Charger fans don’t like the Patriots. There’s bad blood between them dating back to 2006 when the Patriots defeated the Chargers in a divisional playoff game largely dominated by the Chargers. Not only was that humiliating way to lose the game, but Charger fans remember Patriot players mocking Shawne Merriman by imitating his sack dance at midfield as time expired. And those persistent allegations of cheating by Patriot’s coach Bill Belichik, perhaps the most hated man in the NFL, certainly add fuel to the fire.


Now to be fair, the Patriots are a very fine team. They are the New York Yankees of NFL football, the team that you love to hate. It’s true that the Patriots doled out more than their fair share of whoop ass on the Chargers of late. And I am sure that most lunch pale Patriots fans despise all that is “California” about the Chargers. I don’t know why they would feel that way. Frankly, California has been downright hospitable when you consider that two Californians quarterback their team. Throw in the 2007-2008 Lakers and California has been quite good to New Englanders.


So, it was no a surprise that this game was going to be special, a knock down, dragged out, scream at the top of your lungs affair. Certainly it was the hottest ticket in town and the most anticipated game of the year. And for Charger fans, the game lived up to all the hype. On the first play from scrimmage, Philip Rivers completed a 48 yard pass to Vincent Jackson to send a clear signal to the Patriots that the Chargers came to play. When the dust had settled, the Chargers had decisively beaten their nemesis, 30-10. Take that Beantown!


And to add salt to the wound, we got the “The hottest dance team in the NFL”.

Just another reason to hate California !

But enough gloating. Let us turn our attention to the reason why we are all here…cheerleaders. As it customary, we begin with the beautiful and talented Line Captains, Rebecca, Summer, Constance and Katrina.

And speaking of the CGOTD, while photographing Breann and Kylette shamelessly mugging for the camera, I could not help recognizing the irony that these two former CGOTDs are on the same line, standing right next to each other. Sheer coincidence, I assure you.

They say that revenge is a dish best served cold. But I would think that there were more than a few hot blooded Chargers out on that field Sunday night, given the history between these two teams. After all, the Patriots put an end to the Chargers season the past two years, so a little payback was in order. I have a feeling that before all is done, these two teams will meet again in the playoffs and won’t that be an exciting affair.
