As Chargers Fans count down the days to the start of the NFL season, their team will show them some love Monday when players surprise people across the county for “Thank You San Diego Day.”
The team is reprising its winning event started last year when players, Chargers Girls and organization members spread out to Mission Beach, the San Diego Zoo and other spots to show their appreciation.
This year’s “thank you” playbook will remain a secret, but organizers did reveal the surprise visits will be between noon and 3:30 p.m.
“Last year’s ‘Thank You San Diego Day’ was such a hit that we’re heading out again on Monday to say thank you to Chargers fans and get them ready for the season,” said A.G. Spanos, the team’s chief executive officer. “We can feel the optimism in the air about this season and the possibilities that lie ahead, and we want our fans to feel that same excitement.”
The Bolts have a lot to be thankful for after they saw the county rally around them in their exciting playoff appearances last season.
After defeating the Cincinnati Bengals in the first post-season game, the team made it to AFC Divisional Playoffs, falling to the Denver Broncos (and we all remember how the ensuing Super Bowl turned out).
The Chargers kick off this season on Aug. 7 at Qualcomm Stadium with a pre-season game against the Dallas Cowboys.
