Chargers camp urges promises "thorough examination" of CSAG report

"Just let us savor the moment for a bit, okay?"

C-SAGging hopes?
C-SAGging hopes?

Statement from Chargers' head of business affairs A. G. Spanos:

Spanos: "Seriously, this is not the kind of thing you want to rush."

We are grateful to San Diego's Citizens' Stadium Advisory Group for putting in the extra effort required to get us a report by our arbitrarily shortened deadline. It shows good faith. Now we want to return the favor by taking a long and careful look at their proposal for a new stadium in San Diego. It's too early to make any kind of official statement, but I will say this: my initial impressions are extremely positive. I mean, this shit is high-larious. Just one example: under "revenue streams," we read that "In San Diego, the stadium would be expected to host: …Monster Truck Jams…Rodeos…Film showings…Bar Mitzvahs.'" That last one is what makes it perfect. I can't wait to take a closer look. Bar Mitzvahs!

Geez I always get caught up in Almost Factual News. While the facts may not be real the spirit is.

The Spanos family plays San Diego like a fiddle.

These pieces of satire often come across as accurate depictions of reality. That's the soul of satire, and this guy gets some good ones from time to time. In fact, there have been a few that he came closer to the truth than the so-called factual reports. And on occasion, the real news headlines sound like something Mencken would have written. It's often nearly impossible to tell the difference.

It would also be the perfect venue for square dance competitions, chess tournaments, parakeet-on-a-stick cook-offs, Shriner conventions, and spelling bees!
