Despite the invaluable array of life lessons Mario Lopez absorbed playing A.C. Slater on "Saved by the Bell," the actor continues to grapple with the real-life roller-coaster ride that comes with rooting for San Diego's schizophrenic football team.
"Being a Charger fan is tough.. It's sad actually," Lopez tweeted after the loss. "But, I'm loyal to my home town teams. So much for loyalty! All good.. New day tomorrow :)"
That little smiley face at the end, friends?
It assures us Mario's going to be all right, but the Chargers -- coddling their own -- felt the need to reach out.
"Thanks, Mario," the team tweeted back. "We know it's not easy right now."
Certainly a tough hour for Lopez, and the kind of grim confrontation with life's stark realities that he must have channeled during his on-air blow-up with Zack (channeling an inner fire San Diego missed against Oakland).
