Advent Calendar - Dec. 20: 1961—a banner year for the Chargers

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 still holds 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 makes it wonderful to be a Chargers fan.

The 1961 San Diego Chargers season was the team’s second in the American Football League.
