San Diego Chargers fans are known for their intense enthusiasm, as was evident earlier this week at Porter Elementary School where Melvin Ingram and Kendall Reyes worked with more than 100 die-hard Chargers kids on building a foundation of football skills. This weekend, get the whole family involved in football fever and stock your party with Chargers-themed paraphernalia.
Spirit all season long: Let your neighbors know your team of choice and decorate the front lawn with a San Diego Chargers Throwback Gnome or Party Animal San Diego Chargers Tall Team Flag. The Chargers Gnome is a cute little guy decked out in full uniform and will ward off any rival negativity. Fly your Chargers Tall Team Flag high with pride! The all-weather flag will withstand the sun, rain, wind and opposing team naysayers. Your excitement will be contagious, especially when you drive to the tailgate party displaying your Chargers’ mobile with a San Diego Chargers Bolt Car Flag, San Diego Chargers Family Decals (let your kids decorate the passenger windows), San Diego Chargers License Plate Frame or San Diego Chargers Fuzzy Dice.
Cheers to a big win: Whether it’s a Chargers Junior Training Camp scrimmage or this weekend’s nail-biter, you and your fellow parking-lot partiers can toast your team’s good fortune with a San Diego Chargers Tervis Tumbler. Fill up this 24-ounce tumbler with either a hot toddy or ice-cold beer and show off the Chargers logo with every sip. Of course, you need food to go with your celebratory drinks. The San Diego Chargers Plates are sturdy and will hold the mounds of hot food served at your tailgate gala.
“Real” team mania: A jersey here, a fan T-shirt there – when you have the San Diego Chargers bug brewing, sometimes it’s just not enough to sport your own passion for the team. The San Diego Chargers NFL Youth Helmet and Uniform Set is just the ticket to get the whole family involved and makes great conversation starters and photo opps at your tailgate event. You can even personalize your kid’s uniform with iron-on numbers for the jersey and stick-on numbers for the helmet. Do you have an even smaller tyke? Dress up your infant in a San Diego Chargers onesie and logoed newborn booties.
Round up the tailgate crowd: Tailgate parties not only feature good food, thirst-quenching drinks and great friends, they also highlight parking-lot games to get the crowd rolling. Bring out the San Diego Chargers Tailgate Toss or Ladder Golf Game for a little one-on-one and friendly rivalry.
SOLD! Bring your phone or tablet with you because you just might have the winning bid on Chargers’ auction items. NFL.com holds online auctions with the most recent being an Eric Weddle signed Chargers Proline helmet (auction ends on October 2).
