Tweets and Photos from Chargers Practice Aboard the USS Reagan

The San Diego Chargers held a practice aboard the nuclear aircraft carrier USS Reagan. The photos from it were rather impressive.

In case you missed the news last week, the Chargers announced that they would be holding a practice on the deck of the USS Ronald Reagan, a nuclear-powered aircraft carrier. This was no April Fool's Joke.

By all accounts, this was a successful show of support for the local San Diego Military. How special it must have been to be one of the sailors assigned to the Reagan, to have an NFL team practice on your flight deck and meet a bunch of players afterwards. It's a relatively small gesture, but one I'm sure goes a long way for the sailors.

Oh and not to mention the fact the players can now say they've played football aboard an aircraft carrier; win-win. It seemed like the players had just as much fun as the sailors, not really practicing all that intensely. In fact, Nick Hardwick and Eric Weddle took as many snaps as Philip Rivers in practice. It seemed like less of a practice and more like a bunch of buddies playing around on the flight deck.

One of the great things about living in the modern days of social media being so prevalent: we get to experience the day right along with the sailors and players. Between Twitter and Instagram, the day was well documented.
