Okay, so if you haven't heard there will be a woman referee on the field for Thursday night's preseason game against the Green Bay Packers. This has never happened before. Now, I'm tempted to say, "Well, at least there will finally be someone on the field less competent than Norv Turner!" But I'm not going to say that, because we live in a world where, as Randy McMichael-who's still on the team regardless of the three or four other TEs we picked up this season-says, "...A woman is just as capable as a man to do anything."

So, rather than make some sort of crack about another dubious honor for San Diego sports, I'm going to just say congratulations to chicks and in the immortal words of my friend Virginia Slim, "You've come a long way, baby."
