New, comments

San Diego Charger players' tweets and Instagram photos showcase how they engage with fans and give back to the community.

If you find the time -- or the need -- to relax your brain and step away from pre-season analyzing and speculating, scroll on down.

After hours of stalking Charger players' Twitter and Instagram feeds, I found a hefty amount of off-season posts to reassure Bolt fans that players reciprocate their adoration and appreciate the love. Perhaps these will help ease the headache from the Charger's recent loss to the Seahawks, or at least put a small smile on your blue and gold painted faces.

Note, these are listed in no particular order:

Nick Hardwick helped educate elementary school kids about water safety.
