Junior Seau gets trampled

On my list of “Sentences I Never Thought I Would Be Typing” (which, of course, required me to type each of the sentences I thought I would never type), this one was close to the bottom: 

“Junior Seau was run over from behind by a bull.”

TMZ has the video of the recent incident, during which Seau finds himself flattened by something far bigger and tougher than anything he ever encountered while playing football.

It happened at a Professional Bull Rider’s event in Ontario, Canada.  Junior wasn’t seriously injured. 

Seau spent 19 seasons in the NFL with the Chargers, Dolphins, and Patriots.  A lock for the Hall of Fame, hobbies like this could cause his enshrinement to occur posthumously.

    That’s classic …kind of looked like Steve Wallace running his ass over in Super Bowl 29.

    Seau getting to the roots of the Bull Rush technique?

    Dan Snyder just offered the Bull a four-year, $25 million contract.

    A few weeks ago Junior was interviewed by a Boston radio station in which he stated that if the Pats wanted him to return he would only consider it late in the season. He said he is very active living his life and enjoying being a dad. The man is loving life in a way many of us wish we could. He is thoughtful and well spoken in addition to being in terrific physical condition. The NFL should be proud to have guys like him around. There are so many self centered jerks who receive the spotlight and so few good men who do not. God bless him and protect him.

    So let me see if I get this, you “graduate” because you can no longer operate effectively in a world of 300 lbs men with amazing speed and nasty dispositions. So exactly how did the discussion involving one ton of genetically engineered whoop-ass, motivated with a cattle prod to the testicles unfold? Jr, they call it retirement for a very good reason.

    CliveRush, well said.
    There’s a shortage of that here.

    It was in Ontario, California, not Canada. The only bulls we have up here are of the moose variety.

    This is Junior Seau we’re talking about here. I’m more concerned about the health of the Bull.

    I call B.S.
