Remembering Junior Seau

Posted on May 03, 2012 by Joe Gill

Junior Seau 1969-2012

Hearing about the death of former Chargers, Dolphins and Patriots linebacker Junior Seau yesterday was just tragic and incredibly sad. Seeing his mother devastated and screaming out to take her instead of her son was absolutely heartbreaking. So instead of wallowing in the sadness of his passing, let’s celebrate his life.

Let’s remember his smile.

Let’s remember everyone’s “Buddy”.

Nothing encapsulates the man Junior was than this video from Versus’ Sports Jobs”. Junior visits the TD Garden’s Bull Gang prior to a Bruins game.

Love how he was poking fun at the Boston accent.

Here is a great tribute from USC with Junior singing and playing the ukelele.

“You Can’t Coach Courage”

Everyone at Sports Then and Now and especially Boston Sports Then and Now expresses our deepest sympathies to the Seau family.

We will miss you Buddy.
