In 1974 Bob La Porta Sr. bought 2 season tickets for The San Diego Chargers. In 1978 he added a 3rd. So began a Sunday ritual where Bob and his two sons would drive to the stadium for Charger home games. They sat in Aisle 33, Section 34, Row 4, Seats 3,4,5. Bob in the middle, Robert to his left in seat 03, and Richard to his right in seat o5. There was Disco Dude, Sports Fan and that lady in front who brought the chicken in Tupperware. There were tears and cheers and some incredible memories of a shared passion. Finally, with both boys away at college Bob released the seats in 1996 but the memory and now the name lives on. And so does the heartbreak as the Chargers still haven’t won a SuperBowl. If Wilbur Young hadn’t jumped offside in 1980 maybe… just maybe…
