Awesome Game

The hottest weather spot in the nation yesterday was El Cajon, just a few miles East of my home in San Diego. I spent the afternoon watching the Chargers play the Steelers in snowy weather. The final score was 11-10, but the game was closer than the score would seem to imply.

I would have preferred a win, of course, but that was one of the best and most enjoyable games I have seen in a very long time. That was two fine teams taking no prisoners, and was football the way it should be played. The Chargers offense made some mistakes, but it moved the ball well on the best defense in the league, and scored twice. The defense was aggressive and hard hitting, held a very good opponent without a single touchdown, and finally was not regularly missing tackles.

We set a record in that, after more than twelve thousand games, there has never in history been an NFL game ending in that score.
