What Is This World Coming ? Is a re- occuring question in my mind. Especially when I read stories like this one. There is no mentioning the NFL or the game or football, without the mentioning of this phenomenal athelete. I am in utter dismay, at the death of this legend. Junior Seu was found dead today. Some are speculating that it was murder, while his death is being investigated as a suicide. Wow, my heart goes out to his family, as i would never this great person, who just happened to be another driving force in the NFL; not to mention, his awesome contribution to the athletic shoe game. I became a big fan his Nike Shoe Line while in High School. Imagine my shock when I read this story,
Former NFL linebacker Junior Seau was found dead Wednesday morning at his Southern California home. He was 43 years old.
The ex-linebacker's girlfriend found the NFL legend with a fatal shotgun wound to the chest. The San Diego Union-Tribune reports that police received a call to 911 at 9:35 a.m. reporting a possible suicide, per Oceanside police Chief Frank McCoy. Officers found Seau in a bedroom with a gunshot wound to the chest, and efforts to revive him were unsuccessful. Reports indicate that a gun was found by Seau's side. Seau's death was first reported by TMZ.
The San Diego Chargers issued a statement at approximately noon PT:Everyone at the Chargers is in complete shock and disbelief right now...We ask everyone to stop what they're doing and send their prayers to Junior and his family."Obviously, it's shocking," Chargers team president Dean Spanos said. "It makes you feel very sad. He's brought so much to this community over the years. A good person, a good friend. He was the fabric — really a part of this community. He was the heart and soul of our team for so many years. Even after he left, his roots and his home were still here. Just people loved him and admired him."
R.I.P. Junior Seau.......
