    32 For 32: San Diego Chargers

    in Sports

    One of the strangest teams we saw last season was the San Diego Chargers. They had one of the weirdest seasons I can recall in recent years, & one of the weirdest in franchise history. They were 5-1 before everything came crashing down, including the kitchen sink. After losing Week 1, they won 5 straight, then lost in the final minutes to division rival Kansas City, then another loss to another division rival Denver, then an embarrassing 37-0 beatdown at the hands of Miami. At that point, you would've thought the bye week couldn't had come at a better time. So then they return to action winning 3 straight (all 3 were very close games, including a dramatic finish in Baltimore), but lose at home to a New England team in they had the momentum against in the first half. Then another loss to Denver nearly pushed them off the cliff for a playoff spot. But if you thought the Baltimore win was impressive, what they did in San Francisco will go down in the history books. All they had to do was beat Kansas City & they had a shot for a wildcard spot. Well that didn't happen, & during the off-season rumors began to spread about the possibility of quarterback Phillip Rivers reuniting w/ former offensive coordinator Ken Whisenhunt (now Titans head coach) in Tennessee. Well, that didn't happen either & w/ tight end Antonio Gates's, time iomments about the "window closing", time is ticking on the Chargers. This team from 2004 to 2009 was the most talented team in football. Those years are so long gone that I have no idea was this team will look like in 2015. But do the duo of Rivers & Gates have enough in them to make one more run in the playoffs? We'll discuss it in another in installment of "The Rocket Sports Breakdown" Thursday morning @ 10:30am. Rocket Nation, get ready for a power trip.

    Matt Massaro, North San Diego

    in Business

    This week my guest is Matt Massaro of North San Diego. North San Diego site, an online resource that reflects San Diego North County’s locals, businesses, venues, people and rich resources in the form of a collective and dynamic online community. A North County resident, Massaro knew that since North County San Diego is one of the most vibrant, attractive, and ideal places to live and to work, it needed a online space devoted to community participation and regular interaction.

    Matt shares, “I came up with the idea for NorthSanDiego.org after having years of experience working closely with small businesses, start-ups, and starting a couple of my own websites that feature blogs. It takes a lot of time and effort to build up a good blog on a single company website or a personal website. I wanted to create a resource for small business owners, residents, professionals, and the general community to gain free exposure. Creating a website that is user-based is important to me. The future of the website will be tailored to the readers and users of the site. “
