Junior Seau DEAD May 2nd, 2012May 2nd, 2012 | Posted by in Uncategorized
Dead: May 2nd, 2012
High of His Life: Junior Seau got to do what a lot of us dream of; play in the National Football League… and he did it very, very successfully. A ten-time all-pro and twelve time pro bowler, Seau was one of the leagues great all-time linebackers. He spent a majority of his career with the San Diego Chargers (not a bad place to make a living), and also spent time with the Miami Dolphins.
Low of his Life: Guy never won a ring. Despite being on some very talented San Diego teams, Seau only went to one Super Bowl as a member of the Charges… and his defense was promptly embarrassed on a global scale by Steve Young, Jerry Rice & the San Fran 49ers, giving up a Super Bowl record 49 points.
In an effort to get that elusive Super Bowl, Seau actually came out of retirement and sold his soul to play for the NFLs most evil organization, the New England Patriots, froom 2006-2009. The bad karma caught up with Seau, and the PatriRats, who never won a Championship during Seau’s tenure (or since).
The rumor at the mo’ is that Seau’s death was a suicide, which will likely be linked to the negative effects of undiagnosed concussions. So not only did he get the horrific later-in-life complications, but he’s missing out on the opportunity to sue the NFL for billions of dollars.
