Junior Seau was shot and killed in his home at 10 am this morning. He played 20 seasons of NFL football, starred in 12 pro-bowl games. He rocked the number 55 for San Diego, Miami, and New England. He put together so many foundations for children in his hometown of Oceanside, California.
My best friend in middle school looked just like him, and he rocked number 55 as well. Seau was our hero. He was the best middle linebacker of his time, in our book anyway. Of course we hated the San Diego Chargers, but we couldn’t help but to adore Junior’s moxie when he’d blow through the offensive line and toss the 90’s quarterback greats to the ground.
Cheers Junior, we love you! Then and now!
