The Los Angeles Chargers and Rams will continue their progressive and welcoming nature as franchises, in becoming the first teams in NFL history to sponsor a Pride event.

The Pride event will be taking place at Venice Beach, Calif. and runs today and tomorrow. As part of their involvement, both teams will be sponsoring a letter in the Venice sign that will be illuminated at 9 p.m. (PT) tonight — with the Chargers sponsoring the letter “N” and the Rams the letter “C,” respectively.
As America continues their public battling and bickering over sports, politics and other trivialities, it’s nice to know that the Chargers and Rams still have their eyes on the ball.
