Drew Brees, the quarterback for the San Diego Chargers, has been playing miserably lately. Headed into this Sunday, San Diego had only won one of its eight games. So this week, my beloved Doug Flutie took his place… and played a kick-ass game. He led San Diego to victory over the Vikings 42 to 28. Under his leadership, the offense scored four touchdowns on the first four possessions of the game. It was glorious to behold. Flutie might be 41 years old now, but he hasn’t lost his edge.
As luck would have it, the Chargers are playing at Denver next week. I’ve never seen Flutie play in person… and after Drew Brees got the quarterbacking job last year, I didn’t think I’d ever have the opportunity to do so. But now I will… and all that I need to do is acquire some last-minute tickets from eBay.
Life is good.
