Junior Seau, Ride the Lightening

This is a song that has been played at the Q for many years to pump up Charger fans. Metallica’s “Ride the Lightening”

Awesome Video of Lightening Strikes and a fitting musical and video tribute I think to Junior as he played like a BOLT of lightening.

RIP Junior

Junior Seau, RIP

Junior Seau, on field

It is a tough day in San Diego! One of our true hometown sports heroes Junior Seau has passed away. There are many things that can be said about Junior and the media will do their digging and prodding but on the field for a San Diego sports fan he was THE best! San Diego sports have had so few guys come through and give such a consistent Herculean effort on the field and in the community.

I will never forget the Superbowl season of 1994 which he was the undisputed leader. I will never forget Junior making huge plays then slumping in between each down because his arm was in so much pain. That dangling arm never stopped him and endeared him to SD fans forever an image burned into my sports memories! And who can ever forget his fist pumping leg kicking move after one of his patented big plays!

Thanks for the memories Junior. Thanks for laying your heart and talents on the field for our local team! Sorry you wont get to grow old feeling the love of the community or maybe I’m just selfishly wishing we had you as an ambassador for America’s Finest City for years to come.

Thanks and rest in peace!

I don’t write about a lot of non-musical topics so for a musical reference here is the San Diego Super Chargers Fight Song
