Yep... I am 31 years old. I lived in San Diego for almost five years and it took me driving just over 300 miles from Las Vegas to go to my first San Diego Chargers game! This trip was actually super cool for me because I was able to take it with some young men who recently graduated from our high school ministry; Nevin Zwifel, Nick Markovich and Anthony Rossa.
We left Vegas around 8pm on Wednesday night and headed to Corona to stay at Nick's cousins house. We left Corona early Thursday morning and headed to the beach. It was great spending the day at the beach with these guys and my friend Jon Miano actually came and hung out with us (Jon was a student when I was an intern in San Diego almost nine years ago).
I have to admit that I was a little bummer that Rivers, Gates, and Jackson didn't start but I can get over that. I am so thankful to Nick for taking me to this game. Now the coolest part is that I have been able to invest into the lives of these guys for over 12 years (Nevin 7 years, Nick 4 years and Anthony 1). It was great to spend some time with them as they are starting college, getting for the Marines and becoming men. I can't tell you how thankful I am that I got to attend this game but more importantly to spend time with these men.
