Charger's new fans have not mastered tailgating yet

Barbecue ignites blaze at Chargers game

August 22, 2005

SAN DIEGO --The smoldering coals of a tailgate barbecue ignited a fire that destroyed six vehicles in the parking lot at Qualcomm Stadium during a Chargers exhibition game, authorities said. The blaze also damaged four other nearby vehicles.

Shortly after kickoff of the exhibition game Sunday between the Chargers and the St. Louis Rams, the hot coals of a barbecue left in front of a Ford Mustang ignited cars that had been parked together.
A column of black smoke rose into the air, and the smell of burning tires wafted over the grandstands. Some cars were left sitting on their rims. Shattered glass lined rows between the burned vehicles. Fenders were melted away.

Police Sgt. Ray Mattuck said there was no doubt the fire had been started by a barbecue.

By halftime, arson investigators were searching through the ashes. The investigators were expected to determine if charges would be filed, firefighters said

Reports have come in about Chargers Quarterback Drew Brees being the prime suspect in the car burnings at Qualcomm stadium. Brees attorney only said that he was upset that he couldn't burn anything on the field!

What?!?! The INVESTIGATORS are EXPECTED to determine if charges will be filed? If they don't then who the hell will?

Yep, I remember sitting in my old seats upper level watching this. It was probably only my 2nd or 3rd season so it was in the early '90s. We saw just a little smoke way off in the distance and then more and more until it was a thick, black column of smoke and then the firetrucks showed up. IIRC, there were 3 or 4 cars involved. Some nimrod put a grill full of hot coals under the back of his car...right under the gas tank.

Bob Dole was going to comment that it hasn't been too many years ago that it was a regular happening.

They should carry through with filing charges against Marty for being an imposter of a head coach!!! (His record in the playoffs should be heavily considered in filing of the charges).

Nope. Appears he was a Steelers fan.

http://www.signonsandiego.com/news/m...2qualcomm.html

From the stands, Sam Mason of San Diego saw that one of the vehicles on fire appeared to be his Ford Explorer, so he left the stadium at halftime to check it out.

He was right.

"I don't even like the Chargers," Mason said. "I tried to sell these tickets. I only bought them because you have to to get tickets to the (Pittsburgh) Steelers game."

Doesn't matter. He's from California, that's all we need to know.

And he's probably a transplant from the East Coast. So?
