“Pin-Up” of the Week: Junior Seau San Diego Chargers Pin

Earlier this week one of the NFL’s best known linebackers took his own life with a gunshot wound to the chest.  Junior Seau was only 43 years old.  Seau was mostly known for playing with the San Diego Chargers, but he also played for the Dolphins and Patriots.

I guess being a spectacular pro athlete has its ups and downs.  One day your making millions of dollars and being cheered upon by 60,000 fans, and then you retire with very little to do.  I can see how someone could fall into depression and start getting themselves into trouble.  That’s why it is important for retiring athletes to find something to do that makes them feel valuable.  Go into broadcasting, open a restaurant, go on the autograph circuit.  If they were smart enough, hopefully they saved some of that money to live on.  Pro athletes need something to fall back on, not necessarily for the money, but for something to stay busy.  When a pro athlete’s career is over, there is so much time left to live.

R.I.P Junior Seau.  We’ll “Sea U” later.
