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.
