Chargers fans didn't even want to sit in their seats during game vs. Eagles

Chargers fans didn't even want to sit in their seats during game vs. Eagles

You may not realize this after Sunday, but Chargers fans are not merely figments of our Philadelphia sports imagination! They really do exist!

And if there is an ounce of sympathy in you, you can't help but feel bad for those Chargers fans who really do care about their team.

Check out this video from the San Diego Union-Tribune, on location at the StubHub Center. It's just the saddest.

OK, the first dude didn't want to sit in his seats that he paid his hard-earned money for because he was getting swallowed whole by screaming (and assumed well-behaved!) Eagles fans. He chose rather to stand in the not-so-upper level and barely see his Chargers play than be drowned out by Eagles fans.

"Why am I up here?"

Poor guy.

Of course Eagles fans were interviewed, too. I mean, how could they not have been, it was like a 26,990-10 ratio.

And of course they had no shame. Bless them.

But still, the video, no matter how elated or depressed it makes you, is worth checking out.

It's reminder that if you think you have it bad, there's almost always a worse-off fan base out there.

Aspiring astronaut Joel Embiid found Eric Jr. tweets funny

One of the sad things about the NBA offseason is that we don't get quite as much Joel Embiid in our lives on a regular basis.

Sure, he'll pop up at a local basketball court every now and then or maybe at a charity soccer event but we don't get to see him on our television every third day or so. That's a bummer for trusters of the process.

Thankfully, Vulture's Nate Jones caught up with Jojo the other day to ask him about some of the more eventful moments of the offseason thus far, such as Bryan Colangelo's burner accounts and his playground antics.

Embiid's answers rarely disappoint.

Jones: One of the things you’re famous for doing in the off-season is dunking on five-foot-tall white guys. Are you going to be doing more of that this summer?

Embiid: I don’t know. That’s not something I wake up in the morning like, I’m gonna go to the court and dunk on people. It’s just usually I go do my regular stuff, play tennis, and then some random fans happen to be talking shit, so then I gotta teach them a lesson. And that’s what I do.

I love it so much. Jo just has to teach fools a lesson. So that's what he does.

When asked about Colangelo's burner accounts, he calls Eric Jr., "my boy" and says he enjoyed the collar tweets: "The collar tweets were actually really fun. I enjoyed that one. Those were funny."

There's some other funny stuff mixed in, so go check out the whole Q&A, and be happy that these words actually came out of Joel Embiid's mouth:

I’ve always wanted to be an astronaut.

Are you listening, Elon Musk? Make it happen. But not until he retires in 17 years. Maybe he can head up Donald Trump's Space Force at that point. Nobody would mess with Joel Embiid in space.

Eagles players thoroughly enjoyed Baker Mayfield owning Colin Cowherd

Baker Mayfield wasn't universally praised before being drafted into the NFL. Much of the criticism surrounding him was somewhat flimsy, however.

Take Colin Cowherd for example -- speaking of guys who are not universally praised lol. He's still grasping at straws.

Cowherd had Mayfield on his show and pointed to a clip in which the quarterback tossed a touchdown and ran over to celebrate with the Ohklahoma band and student section instead of his teammates. Cowherd pointed to it being an example of Mayfield lacking... something?

Mayfield wasn't having it tough and responded in fantastic fashion. Watch the exchange below.

Plenty of people on Twitter thoroughly enjoyed the exchange; a couple of Eagles players among them.

Chris Long liked it. Lane Johnson loved it. Somebody else presumably wanted more of it.
