Thank You Kris Dielman #ThxKris

Today will be a sad day in Charger nation with one of the best offensive lineman hanging up the pads and cleats. The Chargers started a twitter tag #ThxKris so that fans could share their appreciation for Kris. First I will list a few of the players thoughts and then follow it up with some of the fans thoughts:

    Thanks Kris. I will miss you a great deal. You know if you’re in the forgotten world of offensive lineman and you have a  badass nickname like “Dirty Dielman” or DirtyDiel you’ve made an impact. I think all of SD knows your name and loves you.
    I think years ago, might have been a Pro Bowl or something when LaDanian called him Dirty Dielman it was the first time I heard it. Great name for a great player. I’ll always remember Kris & Nick Hardwick downfield slugging it out till the whistle.
    I’ll also always remember him picking up and hugging #21 whenever he scored a touchdown. Thanks for the memories and good luck in the future. You will be missed around here on Sundays.

    Great player.  We’ll miss him.  I hope he remains in good health.  No thanks to that “doctor” that the Chargers employ.
