The Holy Roller: Happy Anniversary Chargers Fans
I hate the San Diego Chargers. It could be the Chargers vs. the Ku Klux Klan, and I would be tempted to cheer for the Klan. That being said, I enjoy talking shit about the
The fact that San Diego has never won a Super Bowl, brings a smile to my face. The last time they were in the big game, Me Against The World was my favorite album, I didn’t have my drivers license yet, and the price of gas was $1.15 a gallon. Oh the memories.
Today marks the 34th anniversy of the epic “The Holy Roller” game. To this day it is still one of the most famous endings to any game in history. How does that make you feel Hank Bauer?
At home, the Chargers were up 20-14 with 10 seconds left in the game. The Raiders had possession at San Diego’s 14-yard line when Chargers Linebacker Woodrow Lowe had apparently sacked Raiders QB Ken Stabler to end the game. Before Stabler hit the ground, he “intentionally” fumbled the ball forward. Raiders RB Pete Banaszak attempted to pick the ball up on the 12-yard line, but stumbled and ended up knocking it forward. TE Dave Casper reached the ball on the 2-yard line and batted it into the end zone where he fell on it for the game winning Touchdown. Mmmmm mmmm mmmmmmm!!
The game still has Chargers players catching feelings.
