San Diego Chargers News



Writer-director Tim Carr calls it a documentary within a movie, but San Diego Chargers fans will no doubt describe "Leaf" as a horror film. It's an 82-minute film about Ryan Leaf, and it's being screened tonight at the San Diego Library.

Perhaps anticipating the reaction in San Diego, the screening is free.

"I insisted it be free for all the Chargers fans because it's their story," Carr told the San Diego Union-Tribune. "I was like, 'Chargers fans have been through enough -- let them have this.' "

Carr, who plays Leaf in the film, won't be at the screening. Right now he's re-editing the ending to include Leaf's resignation last month from his job as an assistant Football coach at West Texas A&M.

"That kills my redemption ending," Carr said.


Trivia time

Peyton Manning and Leaf were the top two selections in the 1998 NFL draft. Who was chosen third?


Ouch, part 1

The political comedy website www.236.com listed "plaxident" as its Monday "Word of the Day." It is "an act of stupidity that costs you $35 million."


Ouch, part 2

Plaxico Burress' plaxident prompted the website www.cbs46.com to list a few bizarre injuries suffered by other athletes. Here is a sampling:

Kim Clijsters: The former women's tennis player injured her tailbone after tripping over her dog while playing soccer.

Sam Torrance: The Scottish golfer had a sleepwalking problem and during the 1993 Ryder Cup left his bed to tackle a tree he mistook for an intruder. Torrance suffered a broken toe in the process.

Joel Zumaya: The Detroit Tigers relief pitcher sustained inflammation in his arm, causing him to miss three games of the 2006 American League Championship Series, because of playing too much of the video game "Guitar Hero."


Once a bagger, always ...

Old habits die hard, former grocery store employee Kurt Warner was saying on "The Best Damn Sports Show Period."

"I go to the grocery store and still want to bag my own groceries," Warner said. "I still think I can do it better than anyone else in the grocery store. And definitely, the eggs always go separate."


Trivia answer

Florida State defensive end Andre Wadsworth, by the Arizona Cardinals.


And finally

Ted Wyman of the Winnipeg Sun, on the Tampa Bay Lightning's promotion of Rick Tocchet to head coach: "He's said to be an intense, demanding, no-nonsense guy. Oh, and he runs a hell of an NFL office pool."

-- Mike Penner
