April 1, 2010 (Santee) – The San Diego Chargers have received an offer from the City of Santee to construct a new Chargers stadium in the East County community.

“This will be a win-win for the Chargers and East County,” said Santee Mayor Randy Voepel, wearing a sporty bolts blazer. With the upcoming completion of Highway 52, Santee will be easily accessible from all parts of San Diego. Having an NFL team in Santee will not only be good for Charger fans, but will also boost revenues for our city.”


To fill stadium seats during the off-season, Voepel announced an innovative approach. “After learning that Fish & Wildlife officials have been putting surplus mountain lions to death that are captured near schools or preying on pets, we decided to give those lions a sporting chance,” he said. “So Santee’s new stadium arena will host lions vs. gladiators match-ups in the spring and summer months.”

Eager to shed stereotypical images of Santee as a haven for hate groups and rid his town of such troublemakers, Voepel revealed that he invited leaders of white supremacist gangs to prove their toughness by volunteering as the first gladiators.

“We held a pilot match Friday night at West Hills High School. The outcome of the practice round was Lions 6, Supremacists 0," the Mayor revealed.  "Now we're seeking new contestants to take on our well-fed big cats.”

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) condemned the sporting events as “barbaric.” But the Mayor’s announcement drew applause from Santee sports fans-- and a commitment from a FOX producer to feature the new sporting events in an upcoming reality TV show.

why killing

Although it's true that the mountain lions are a danger for the children, and they should be stopped from coming near schools, it's not OK to kill them in cold blood or put them to fight in a arena. It's barbaric and against common sense. There are many ways to get rid of them that don't involve killing them or making them kill each other for the amusement of some very troubled people. The international pet shipping possibilities are the easiest way to get these animals to either a zoo or in a place where they can be released into the wild and where they can't harm anyone.

“All 75 blades from all 25 turbines were removed and only some of the FAA required lights are working,” Tisdale wrote. “There is speculation that the high winds flowing across the composite blades created an electrostatic discharge that then arced between turbines damaging the blades and the electrical system.” AC Evaporator
