RIP Junior Seau

Today the world lost one of the greatest all-time middle linebackers to ever play the game with the shocking news of Junior Seau's death. Seau was one of the most ferocious players on the field while building a Hall of Fame career in San Diego after his collegiate days in USC. Many of middle linebackers wore #55 because of Seau and I think it would be appropriate for USC to retire his number now since so many players pick it because of Junior. While I do tend to give grief to anybody who is associated with USC (even my sister who goes there) I once met Junior while out partying in Buckhead many years ago. Very nice guy and a fun guy to be around was the feeling me and my buddies got that night despite myself pestering him since he was a Trojan.

RIP Junior Seau. You will me missed. Seau is now the 8th member of the 1994 San Diego Chargers AFC Championship team to pass away. The oldest member was 53. Man that just doesn't seem right.
