In Their Own Words: Junior Seau




I'm gonna remember him the way he should be remembered....in his prime with the Chargers.

In Their Own Words: Junior Seau



This was both great and said. Great in that we get to see Seau at his best. Sad is that this is hard to see a man that had a great attitude about life and the game itself come to a tragic end. It was eery to see the final quote in the episode "If you want a happy ending....". Sadly, there would be no happy ending for him and now his family and friends. Not going to dwell on the bad as I prefer to think of the good things in the this episode like the scenes where he is talking to the kids and making them life long fans simply by shaking their hands. I know how those kids feel because I had the same experience when meeting and talking to Dan Fouts, Kellen Winslow, Charlie Joiner and Gary "Big Hands" Johnson just to name a few.

I was at Filippis yesterday and they had a impromptu shrine there for him.

Was it like a candle vigil or something? I walk by there pretty much everyday, but I haven't been inside in so long.

nah just a flowery wreath with a pic of him...I guess the owners sort of knew him....it was nice though...so many bottles of wine in there with drawings of Chargers related symbols on them....pretty much anything with such a long standing connection to San Diego is connected with the Chargers...and of course Junior Seau

still can't believe he killed himself...such a shame.

Yeah, it sucks. I'm still trying to shake it. Seems surreal....unreal. I met Junior at my old job once and we were just having a casual conversation about random stuff as I was loading stuff into his car. It was about 12 years ago. He was super cool.

Yesterday you said to give you something to watch right? Well, I say you should watch In Their Own Words: Junior Seau. It's awesome and a lot of it is shot down at the Belmont Roller Coaster. See if you can find me in the background.

are you really in the background?

David Geiger posted a pic on facebook of him a Seau from about 1988 or 1989...pretty cool...they both look so young.  David not so much because I really haven't seen him since then...but Seau looks like a skinny tall kid

Junior Seau Memorial Highlights


I'm still trying to find the full memorial, but it's not likely to ever surface online.

I don't know if I can bring myself to watch it....I hate the idea of suicide....as a pretty big Kurt Cobain fan...I've never been able to go back and enjoy Nirvana after he killed himself.

it's a shame because I really did like the band....but in 20 some odd years...I've never been able to go back to it with any sort of joy.

It's not somber. There is a clip of LT speaking directly to Seau's parents and it's very touching with the crowd cheering them on. The clip can be found here. NFL Films: Junior Seau Memorial
