The Chargers announced on Friday that they are staying put in San Diego and not moving to Los Angeles as was originally assumed. Their fans are pumped, as would be expected. You know who else is? Quarterback Philip Rivers.
Rivers, who went public with concerns about both the franchise and his own family relocating to L.A. prior to this past season, feels, in his own words, “fired up” about the Bolts remaining in their home city since 1961:
“Obviously I’m fired up, as I know the guys will be in that building,” he said shortly after the announcement. “Hopefully the fans are as fired up as we are. We get at least one more go out at Qualcomm and in San Diego. It is exciting news, so I am fired up.”
