Chargers Superfan ‘Boltman’ Announces Retirement; Selling Suit and ‘Intellectual Property’

If you’ve always wanted to be the superfan of a team – and more so the superfan of the Chargers, well the opportunity is wide open for doing so!

The Chargers ‘superfan’ known as ‘Boltman’ is stepping down, and in true American fashion, he’s decided to sell the costume as well as “full intellectual property rights to the Boltman character” to some lucky fan who has too much free time.

Dan Jauregui, who dressed up as the character, sent out an email to media members last week announcing his retirement.

San Diego Union-Tribune – In a statement emailed to media members Thursday, Dan Jauregui announced he was retiring as Boltman, the unofficial mascot of the Chargers, and plans to auction off the character.

Jauregui said he has listed the costume and “full intellectual property rights to the Boltman character” on eBay. There is a reserve price of $5,000, plus $600 for shipping. Half the proceeds will benefit Rady Children’s Hospital in San Diego.

“It has been a great ride and experience for me as I played the role of the mascot character Boltman for over 22 years,” said Jauregui, a Ramonaresident, in his statement. “But the time has now come for me to pass the baton to a true Chargers fan in Los Angeles or San Diego or perhaps even to the Los Angeles Chargers. …

“Dean Spanos and the Chargers have a unique opportunity to extend an olive branch to San Diego fans by bringing Boltman back to the field where he belongs,” Jauregui said. “Boltman belongs alongside the historic Chargers’ Canon (sic) and the Charger Girls as the team gets back to its quest for a Super Bowl title.”
