Junior Seau 1969-2012

I just heard about Junior Seau’s apparent suicide and it really is quite a shame. I grew up idolizing him and hes the first athlete I remember growing up watching who has died. A number of former NFL players have now committed suicide and it doesn’t feel like a coincidence. I hope everyone appreciates and remember what kind of abuse these guys take and what they put their bodies through for our entertainment.

Rest well Junior, you were one of the good ones
