Los Angeles just gained two NFL teams in the last two years, and apparently it’s feeling pretty good about that.
The San Diego Chargers on Thursday made their move to L.A. official. They’ll join the Rams, who fled St. Louis after the 2015 season. The Chargers took some flak for their (supposed) new logo, but the City of Angels was able to even the score — thanks to an unexpected source.
The Los Angeles Kings welcomed the St. Louis Blues to town Thursday night and led by two goals after the first period of an eventual 5-1 win. What does this have to do with the NFL, you ask? Well, the Kings marked the occasion with this absolutely savage tweet.
If the Kings were a football player, they’d draw an unnecessary roughness penalty. And they didn’t stop there, either.
When the proud people of St. Louis tried to defend their NFL-less city, L.A. piled on.
At least one fan was able to lob back a solid dig, though.
Indeed, the Rams went 4-12 in their first season in Los Angeles, and the city is inheriting a Chargers team that went 5-11 in 2016 and fired its head coach, Mike McCoy. But at least the Kings have their new NFL clubs’ backs.
