This is a great time of year to be thankful for what we have, where we have been, and what the future holds. Although the Chargers have lost their way a bit in recent years, the month of December used to hold such incredible promise! This advent calendar is an attempt to hearken back to these days of December joy. Each day will bring a new advent from the Bolts’ history that make it wonderful to be a Chargers fan.
Dec. 5: Balboa Stadium
The San Diego faithful certainly know the name Balboa. Yes, there’s the conquistador and of course Balboa Park, but there was also a time when the Chargers played in Balboa Stadium.
