Monday sports report on my favorite teams (12/10/2007)

San Diego Chargers: Beat Tennessee 23-17 in overtime after trailing 17-3 in the 4th quarter (highlights). It was a rough, dirty game by all accounts. Shawne Merriman is out next week with a knee injury and Lorenzo Neal broke his leg. The game wasn't carried locally, so I only saw the end of the 4th quarter when the Oakland-Green Bay game ended, but damn, that was fun! Philip Rivers sucked through three and a half quarters and then led them to three quick scoring drives. He sucked at times last year too -- nowhere near as often as this year, though -- but he usually played well in the 4th quarter. That's been the real difference between this year and last. Oh, and Antonio Cromartie got another interception. He leads the league with nine. Remember that name: Antonio Cromartie.

University of Oregon Ducks football: They're just getting ready to play in the Sun Bowl. It's funny; expectations were so low, and then so high. For awhile. The Ducks came out of nowhere to have a legitimate shot at winning the national championship, and Dennis Dixon at the Heisman Trophy. Then Dixon went down. Then his two backups went down. And that was that. Nobody would have been disappointed back in August if you'd told them the Ducks would win eight games and go to the Sun Bowl, but it's a huge anti-climax now.

University of Oregon Duck basketball: Beat Utah 75-64. They're 7-1 and ranked 16th in both polls.

Los Angeles Lakers: They're 12-8. Kobe's still a Laker.

San Diego Padres: They signed pitcher Randy Wolf and lost out on Milton Bradley, who signed with Texas. They're trying to sign Japanese outfielder Kosuke Fukudome and his career .397 on-base percentage.
