The Chargers are a mess right now, at least when you consider how much talent they have. Thursday night, in a huge AFC West game against the Raiders in San Diego, the Chargers played like crap, losing their fourth straight game. It dropped their record to 4-5, and they're now third place in the AFC West.

Well, A.C. Slater(whose real name is Mario Lopez but we're not going to call him that... yeah right), tweeted his frustration about the Chargers after Thursday's loss, as he's a fan of the team:

And the Chargers' official Twitter account responded to Slater with an apology:
Very smart move by the Chargers, as you need as much Slatin' as possible on your side. You don't want to lose the moves:

And the wind with the win in blowout(no pun intended) fashion:

Stop whining and let the hat go, lady. So your hair's going to look horrible on local Palm Springs television in a billion mph wind storm? Big whoop, nobody cares.

You've got thousands of geezers in Palm Springs wondering whether or not this wind will allow them to hit the links tomorrow. Not to mention the camera guy has probably been waiting for hours to hit up the bar at Marriott Desert Springs and hopefully meet a princess there like A.C. Slater did in that episode which Jessie Spano's dad gets married(Yeah, I've stayed at that hotel a couple times and it's pretty badass).

Just get to the point, finish up the report, and everybody comes out a winner. Instead, even the Knicks are embarrassed with the performance, and the camera guy probably just ended up trying to drink himself to death for having to deal with your ass all day.

I bring you some Bayside drama that is sure to have Mr. Belding shaking his bald head.

A man at "Mullets Sports Bar" in Chicago took off a framed photo of A.C. Slater that was hanging above a urinal and smashed it on the floor last week:
Police were called last week to Mullets Sports Bar & Restaurant in Homer Glen to deal with an angry customer who allegedly shattered a framed photo of A.C. Slater, a fictional, mullet-wearing jock played by Mario Lopez in the 1990s television series "Saved by the Bell."
And why did the guy do it?

"I just don't like Slater," the man reportedly told the owner after allegedly yanking the photo from its place of pride above a urinal and smashing it on the floor. The owner told police the bathroom door also was damaged.

Fair enough.

My guess is this guy is a Valley High fan(the rival of Slater's Bayside Tigers), or maybe always had a thing for Slater's girl, Jessie Spano.

20 years ago, this Bayside gang was born.

I'm a HUGE Saved by the Bell fan, as I'm pretty sure every Thigh writer is or was at some point. Basically the entire generation of people in their mid 20s-mid 30s is. I still watch episodes whenever I can in the morning on TBS, and even had a bunch of the DVDs until they were stolen/borrowed and never returned in college.

So two days ago was a special day for me and many others(even though you, just like me, had no idea at the time), as Saved by the Bell made its debut 20 years ago(August 20, 1989) to the day on NBC. So happy 20th to Saved by the Bell!

To be clear, the very original show was Good Morning, Miss Bliss, and that particular show began in 1988. That was a show featuring Zack Morris(Mark Paul Gosselaar), Samuel "Screech" Powers(Dustin Diamond), Lisa Turtle(Lark Voorhies), Mr. Belding(Dennis Haskins), and others in middle school.

Then came along Saved by the Bell on August 20th, 1989, where those four just decided to travel along together to Los Angeles to go to high school! What, that sort of stuff doesn't happen?

We were then introduced to Kelly Kapowski(Tiffani-Amber Thiessen), Jessie Spano(Elizabeth Berkley), A.C. Slater(Mario Lopez), etc.

And of course after the high school years of Saved by the Bell, we got Saved by the Bell: The College Years, which didn't include Lisa and Jessie and had a few other new characters, such as former NFL player Bob Golic as their hall R.A. Again, not so realistic, but still damn cool.

Lastly, we saw (spoiler alert!) Zack and Kelly get married in a movie that appeared on NBC, Saved by the Bell: Wedding in Las Vegas. Saved by the Bell: The New Class was also around for awhile featuring Screech, Mr. Belding, and a bunch of new kids, but the show was pure ass.

Anyway, we obviously have to show some great clips, highlight videos, etc. of the show...

The intro

Jessie popping caffeine pills... "I'm So Excited!"

Mr. Belding and his catch phrase, "Hey, hey, hey, what is going on here?"

Zack, Slater, and Screech do "Barbara Ann". They don't literally do her, but they lip sync the song

Zack and Slater fight... sort of a remix version of it from somebody

This is awesome... "Lost Heroes: Saved by the Bell's Rod Belding"

A fan video of highlights from the show to Zack Attack's "Friends Forever:

Another fan video... to the graduation song, "Farewell Bayside"

And this is awesome... "Zack Morris" on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon recently

I can't post this... but here's the "There's no hope with dope" video. That damn Johnny Dakota.

Also, check out the "Thigh of the Week" we did for Kelly Kapowski, a post about A.C. Slater and wearing shirts, and a hilarious post from our friend Chris Illuminati a few days ago about Screech's tell-all book.
