The Chargers next (and last) game against the Giants at Giants Stadium Sunday will be their first since the infamous events of Dec. 23, 1995, when the home team nearly forfeited because their fans spent most of the afternoon pelting one another - and the players - with snowballs.

The vibe in the press box mostly was one of amusement, until a Chargers equipment man was seriously injured.

Afterward co-owner Wellington Mara expressed his disgust in the locker room and vowed to revoke season tickets privileges for those involved.

One of the strangest, lowest moments in the now-doomed stadium's history.
