I was born in San Diego, and most of my early childhood was spent in El Cajon. My family then moved across the country to Tennessee. Long before the Titans came along, everyone around me was a bandwagon Cowboys fans. This only made my Chargers fandom more resolute. I joined the Marine Corps right out of high school and ended up in San Antonio, TX (once again surrounded by Cowboys fans). Through it all, I have remained an avid fan of both the Chargers and the Padres.
