As mentioned in a previous post, as soon as the last BoltBlitz meetup had ended, Thomas Powell and I were already planning the next one.  Although I have already announced that the next meetup is tomorrow at 4:00 pm at Fox Sports Grill in downtown San Diego, there is a new development that I’m sure you caught in the title of this post.

I promised something special, and I am pleased to say that I have managed to deliver.  Through our workings with our friends at DSC – Deluxe Signature Collection – we have arranged for Charger tight end phenom Ladarius Green to attend the event.

I cannot say how excited I am to meet the next serious offensive threat to don a Charger jersey.  What an honor it will be to meet him and shake his hand.

We have the majority of the inside of the venue and the patio.  Mr. Green will be seated on the patio.  Fans will enter the patio area through two sliding doors and pay a $20.00 fee for his autograph signing and the opportunity to meet San Diego’s up and coming star.

You are not obligated to pay the $20.00 to attend the event.  That fee is solely for the chance to get Green’s autograph.  We want to make sure to cater to your needs whether it is just to show up and meet other fans, or take advantage of getting Ladarius’s autograph if that is your desire.

This is a very unique opportunity seeing as these events where marquee players show up generally charge more money for a group of our size.  The folks at DSC have been kind enough to pay for the appearance of Ladarius Green and I couldn’t be more happy to have him at our event.

Similar to the first two events, we’ll have tons of raffles and some great items for Charger fans to win.  As I just mentioned, there are going to be quite a few prizes for people to win and I have placed an emphasis on making sure that there are more female-related prizes this time around.  Many of the prizes will be autographed photos or memorabilia via DSC.

We will have multiple members of the San Diego media involved just as we’ve had at the last two meetups.  They will be on hand to mingle, take photos and answer any questions that you may have regarding your San Diego Chargers.

A true friend of BoltBlitz.com, Steve Adler, will also be in attendance and selling his awesome Charger tees via his website HighBoltage.com.  I am really looking forward to hanging out with him and checking out all of his newest items.

I might also have one or two other tricks up my sleeve.  This is the last event before the NFL regular season kicks off.  It will, by far, be our best event thus far and I hope to see a ton of return guests and as many new faces as possible.  The event will also be covered by a local news outlet and we will be on television.

I really hope to see you all there.  If you are reading this, and you have the opportunity to attend, make sure you are there to experience this first-hand as opposed to being relegated to looking at pictures or living vicariously through those that were present.

Thanks a lot for reading and I can’t wait to see you all there.

Many of you have been clamoring for Thomas and I to release our 53-man roster predictions.  After posting on Facebook that he and I would be doing a joint roster prediction, people were asking for a video commentary of the “event.”  Truth be told, the language was not kid friendly and we believe in keeping the kids in mind with the radio show, our meetups and BoltBlitz.com.

Without further ado, we’ll start with Thomas Powell’s roster prediction for your San Diego Chargers.

Thomas Powell’s 53

QB:  Philip Rivers   Kellen Clemens


RB:  Ryan Mathews  Danny Woodhead  Donald Brown  Marion Grice


WR:  Keenan Allen  Malcom Floyd  Eddie Royal  Vincent Brown  Seyi Ajirotutu  Dontrelle Inman


TE:  Antonio Gates  Ladarius Green  David Johnson  John Phillips


OL:  Nick Hardwick  Chad Rinehart  King Dunlap  DJ Fluker  Rich Ohrnberger  Chris Watt  Michael Harris  Johnnie Troutman  


DL:  Corey Liuget  Kendall Reyes  Sean Lissemore  Lawrence Guy  Kwame Geathers  Ryan Carrethers


LB:  Donald Butler  Manti Te’o  Melvin Ingram  Dwight Freeney  Jarret Johnson  Jerry Attaochu  Reggie Walker Kavell Conner  Andrew Gachkar  Thomas Keiser  Tourek Williams


CB:  Brandon Flowers  Shareece Wright  Jason Verrett  Steve Williams  Richard Marshall  


S:  Eric Weddle  Marcus Gilchrist  Jahleel Addae  Darrell Stuckey  


ST:  Mike Scifres  Nick Novak  Mike Windt


Thomas and I had long discussions regarding carrying a third quarterback, Brad Sorensen, the wide receiving corp, the cornerback group and even tight end.  I like his list and I think he did a great job.  He always does a great job.  Powell is one of the most opinionated writers that I’ve ever had.  Heck, he IS, by far, the most opinionated writer I’ve ever had.  I have the utmost respect for his opinion.  But mine is different.

Let’s roll with my 53-man roster prediction.


Booga’s 53


QB:  Philip Rivers  Kellen Clemens  Brad Sorensen


RB:  Ryan Mathews  Danny Woodhead  Donald Brown  Marion Grice  


WR:  Keenan Allen  Malcom Floyd  Eddie Royal  Vincent Brown  Dontrelle Inman  Tevin Reese


TE:  Antonio Gates  Ladarius Green  David Johnson  John Phillips


OL:  King Dunlap  Chad Rinehart  Nick Hardwick  Chris Watt  DJ Fluker  Michael Harris  Rich Ohrnberger  Craig Watts  Jr.


DL:  Corey Liuget  Kendall Reyes  Sean Lissemore  Lawrence Guy  Kwame Geathers  Ryan Carrethers


LB:  Melvin Ingram  Donald Butler  Dwight Freeney  Manti Te’o  Jarret Johnson  Jerry Attaochu  Reggie Walker Kavell Conner  Thomas Keiser


CB:  Shareece Wright  Brandon Flowers  Jason Verrett  Steve Williams  Richard Marshall


S:  Eric Weddle  Jahleel Addae  Marcus Gilchrist  Darrell Stuckey  Alden Darby  


ST:  Mike Scifres  Nick Novak  Mike Windt


Here are some notes regarding the discussions that Thomas and I had prior to posting these predictions.


Thomas:  Although I am completely against it, I think the Chargers will carry 3 quarterbacks.  But due to my strong belief that a decision like that is a mistake, I still decided to leave Sorensen off of my 53.


Thomas:  As much as I’d like to find a way to put Chris Davis on the team, there just so happens to be no room for him.  He has made some plays in training camp.  But it is only training camp.  Both Booga and I debated finding a way to sneak him onto the team.  But it was impossible to find a player, specifically a veteran, that he should replace on the roster.


Booga:  Although Tommy and I agree on the fact that the team should not carry 3 quarterbacks, they will. Everything I’ve been told is that they will do just that.   Neither Clemens nor Sorensen have impressed in training camp.  That being said, just a simple reiteration of an obvious fact, this is only training camp.  The team has yet to suit up against an opposing team.  It’s incredibly hard to justify a fringe player’s ability based on practice.  “We talkin’ ’bout practice?”


Thomas:  Reese’s inability to catch the ball cleanly – he happens to play wide receiver – is a problem.  He’s had difficulty securing the ball on punts, as well.  Booga is an idiot for having him on his 53.  He MIGHT be stashed on the practice squad.  But, at that point, he’ll probably be snagged up by another team due to his speed.


Booga:  Tom Telesco made it known that the Chargers needed to be faster in all phases of the game.  I believe that Reese will be retained in an effort to add that needed element to both the return game and the wide receiver position.  Sure, I’ve seen bobbled balls, dropped balls AND solid, exciting plays by Tevin Reese.  It will be difficult for him to crack the 53.  But he’s going to get it done in the preseason.


Thomas:  Back to carrying three quarterbacks.  When Booga asked me to do a joint 53-man roster prediction, I was ready.  Despite my belief that the team will, indeed, carry 3. I can’t justify removing talent at wide receiver, linebacker, cornerback or offensive line to enable a third QB being on the roster.  It just doesn’t make good business sense to me.


Booga:  Leaving Andrew Gachkar off of my 53 was very tough.  But look at the Charger special teams unit. Stuckey, Walker, Addae and Conner will most definitely form a strong group of playmakers in the third phase of the game.  It goes without saying, and I’ll hear about this for sure, Tutu not making my 53 will be highly controversial.  I’m not sure the team values his ability as a wideout enough to keep him as a solid special teamer. Both Gachkar and Tutu would be tough cuts.  But, I see it playing out that way.  


Thomas:  The kick and punt return games have so much more to do with the final 53 than in years past.


Booga:  Inman has looked solid in training camp.  He has seen some reps against some of the more talented defenders during camp and he has fared well.  Watching Special teams coach Kevin Spencer stay in his hip pocket makes me believe that if he performs well on special teams, he’ll be a Charger in 2014.   


In short, and not due to my lack of height, it is far too early to post an article on this subject.  But, we are one of the last websites to do so and fans have been asking our opinions on the matter. We wanted to deliver.

Let us know what you think by leaving your comments below.  Better yet, I’ll insert a poll and you can vote on which roster you think is more on point.  This should get interesting.

Booga Peters and Thomas Powell











Wow!  Tonight is the night that our radio show debuts and I couldn’t be more excited.  We plan on bringing you great information, informative guests, star players and everything else you’d want in a show.  It’s always been a dream of mine to do something like this, and I couldn’t be more proud of sharing my time with each and every one of you.

As mentioned above, we’ll have players and members of the media that allow you the access that you wouldn’t normally have if you weren’t a part of what we’re doing.  Providing an excellent, top-notch listening experience is our top priority.  If you have questions or suggestions regarding anything that involves the show, you know how to contact me.  In the case that you aren’t aware of how to be a part of making this show as great as possible, I’ll list the many ways to get in touch with me.

They are as follows:

– Follow me on Twitter ( @BoogaP ).

– Friend me on Facebook ( Booga Peters )

– Email me at boogapeters@yahoo.com

– Text or call me at 509-301-5838

– Contact Thomas Powell via these avenues: @tpowell619 on Twitter, Thomas Powell on Facebook or email him at homeworkgreg@yahoo.com and he’ll bring all of your concerns to my attention.

Just as we do on BoltBlitz.com, we want to educate and inform in a very diverse way that allows you to learn and enjoy at the same time.  Your opinion matters.  You’re why we do what we do.  We want both the radio show and the website to be about you.  That is why it’s imperative that you let us know how to do it even better.  We are not in the business of being set in our ways or alienating those of you that want something more or, perhaps, something different.

After seeing the very first #BoltBlitzMeetup provide an opportunity for over 200 Charger fans to get together in support of YOUR San Diego Chargers, it shows that we are very serious about giving back to the fans.  If that’s not enough, the prizes won totaled over $5,000 in value.  Think about that for a minute.  Many people, myself included, and DSC, especially, donated thousands of dollars of merchandise in exchange for a $5.00 raffle ticket purchase.  Not too shabby, in my opinion.

Here’s how you can be a part of the BoltBlitzLIVE radio broadcast, which debuts tonight at 7:00 pm pacific time and every Wednesday night at the same time:

– Go to BoltBlitz.com and click the “Radio” link near the top of the page

– Go to the Mountain Country 107.9 website and listen to the show there

– If you live in the Alpine/Lakeside/El Cajon area, tune in for free via your radio frequency on 107.9

– Download the Tune in Radio app on your smart phone, tablet, laptop or PC

– And there may be other ways that I don’t even know!


Come stop by, call in and make your voice be heard.  Again, I want nothing more than for this to be your show.  IT IS YOUR SHOW.

In conclusion, thanks for reading and I can’t wait to provide you with the best Charger coverage out there.  Thank you so much in advance for doing your part in making that happen.
