Just a few short days from the start of the season, President Dean Spanos sat down with Chargers.com But the medical treatment was minor and the wife of team President/Chairman Dean Spanos plans to be at Monday’s season opener. Spanos: That obviously remains to be seen, but it was a difficult task coming in. What are your emotions going into the game? Are you nervous? Excited? What’s the anticipation? Spanos: I’m excited. It’s been a long offseason. She returns: The absence of stalwart football fan Susie Spanos at the final preseason Chargers game was noted by TV game announcers, who mentioned she was recuperating from surgery. So it’s quite a turnover but I think we still have a good core group of players in our organization and on our team and I think we’ll be very competitive.
