I hate football.

I'm not a fairweather Eagles fan. I'll still follow the rest of their games this year, while also following Donovan McNabb's recovery from his upcoming ACL surgery.

But I'll be rooting for the Chargers. Tomlinson's the second best rusher I've seen in my lifetime (only Barry Sanders was better), Philip Rivers is quite impressive, I can't bring myself to root for any NFC team, I'm sick of the east cost hegemony in the "other" conference (i.e. the one without the Philly team) in both sports I follow (Yankees, Red Sox, Patriots, Steelers, Ravens), Peyton Manning annoys me, and the Bolts' powder blues are the best uniform in sports.

I'm a Philly fan to the end, but recently, being a sports fan here has just been too painful.

Less than 3 months until pitchers and catchers report...
