Local TV blackout lifted; Southern California to see Chargers-Raiders

Posted by Joel Price on October 30, 2009 – 1:21 PM

Enough tickets have been sold to lift the local television blackout and allow Southern California to see the CBS telecast of the Chargers-Raiders game on Sunday, Nov. 1 at Qualcomm Stadium.  Kickoff is 1:05 p.m. PT.  The game will be televised in San Diego on KFMB-TV, Channel 8 and in Los Angeles on KCBS-TV, Channel 2.  Dick Enberg and Hall of Fame quarterback Dan Fouts will call the play-by-play action. A limited number of tickets, including Club Level tickets, are still available at the Chargers’ ticket office at Gate C at Qualcomm Stadium, at www.Chargers.com and through TicketMaster at 800-745-3000.

This weekend’s game is the 43rd consecutive regular season or postseason Chargers home game to be televised live in Southern California.  The last regular-season home game blacked out in the local market was on Nov. 7, 2004 versus the New Orleans Saints.  The team record for consecutive games televised live is 44 games set from 1979-84.  The Chargers’ next home game is Sunday, Nov. 15 versus the Philadelphia Eagles.  

The Chargers are strongly recommending that fans attending Sunday’s game use mass transit or carpool, and arrive EARLY.  The parking lot at Qualcomm Stadium will open at 9:00 am for general parking and 8:00 am for those with pre-purchased permits. The lot is expected to fill and close early, so fans are encouraged to get to the stadium gates early to ensure that they are in their seats for kickoff.

To avoid heavy traffic around the stadium on Interstates 8 and 15, fans can reach the stadium via the Friars Rd. East exit off of Highway 163.

The San Diego Chargers have re-signed cornerback Dante Hughes and waived cornerback Simeon Castille.

Hughes originally signed with the Chargers on Oct. 20, but was waived on Oct. 24 as Castille was signed from the practice squad to the active roster for Sunday’s game in Kansas City. Castille appeared on special teams in the Chargers’ 37-7 win over the Chiefs on Sunday.

The 5-10, 190-pound Hughes was a third-round draft choice of the Indianapolis Colts in 2007 (95th overall). He spent two seasons in Indianapolis, appearing in 24 games as a reserve defensive back and special teams player. The Colts released Hughes at the conclusion of training camp this season.

The Chargers have also signed offensive tackle Joe Toledo (6-5, 330) to the practice squad and placed center Ryan McDonald on “Practice Squad-Injured” due to a back injury. Toledo attended Carlsbad High School in San Diego County and played at the University of Washington. He was selected by the Miami Dolphins in the fourth round of the 2006 NFL Draft (114th overall) and has spent time with the Green Bay Packers and San Francisco 49ers.

Posted by Joel Price on October 20, 2009 – 2:29 PM

The Chargers placed linebacker Antwan Applewhite on “Reserve-Injured” Tuesday and signed former Colts cornerback Dante Hughes to take his place on the active roster.

Applewhite, a second-year pro and former San Diego State Aztec, suffered a hamstring injury in the Chargers’ season opener at Oakland and hasn’t played since.  He returned to practice last week and re-aggravated the injury.  He is expected to undergo surgery. Hughes (5-10, 190) joined the Colts as a third-round draft pick in 2007 (95th overall) and spent two seasons in Indianapolis.  He appeared in 24 games as a reserve defensive back and special teams player.  Hughes was released at the conclusion of training camp this season.  Prior to his time with the Colts, Hughes was an All-America performer at the University of California where he recorded 15 interceptions in four seasons with the Bears.  A Los Angeles native, Hughes prepped at Crenshaw High School.
