1. It's never a bad day for football in San Diego.

69 degrees in the heat of summer? 51 degrees during the polar vortex? Sounds lovely.

2. And the fans are total animals.

The zoo is one of the only places on the planet to see giant pandas in captivity. Look at that ball protection — get this little guy into some pads.

4. Football players aren't the only ones who suit up.

Because Comic-Con in San Diego is one amazing, costumed affair.

5. Over-the-line is their off-season pastime.

It's basically softball minus the running (win); San Diegans invented it while waiting for volleyball court space on the beach (win); and it can be played year-round (win).

6. California burritos are the ultimate fuel.

Physicists have even theorized that the California burrito may be the key to propelling a rocket with a human payload to Mars.

7. And craft brew is the beverage of champions.

Where he has been witnessed speaking gibberish, acting erratically, and throwing equipment. Sources say he recently challenged the offensive line to a game of Red Rover, after which he was briefly hospitalized.
