SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Only 32 days to go until the official kickoff of the 2013 NFL season.

But it looked a lot like game day at Qualcomm Saturday -- complete with the Chargers and Charger Girls.

This morning, the team hosted its annual FanFest event -- giving the Charger faithful a chance to see the team practice on the field, sign autographs, and meet some of the newest bolts suiting up.

"People are excited about our draft picks, I think Manti Te'o has had incredible fan interest... So it's going to be an exciting game on Thursday," said A.G. Spanos.

Watch the first preseason game against Seattle Thursday, August 8 at 7 p.m. on CBS 8.

    Vincenzo Nibali has won the 18th stage of the Tour de France, emphatically stamping his dominance on the race in its last mountain leg with a solo breakaway on the day's last climb. 
    As his team hoped, Vincenzo Nibali demonstrated he's the "boss" of the Tour de France. Just don't compare him to the last rider to regularly bear that sobriquet at cycling's greatest race, Lance Armstrong.
