I fully planned to watch the second half of the preseason game via DVR, but found myself staying up until 1:00 AM EST to watch it.  No matter how much I try to manage my addiction to this team, they always win out.  If only it was consistently that way on the field.  I was very happy on Saturday night to see that Rivers got his new contract.  We can debate the money, his health...
