Hi guys! As some of you may have heard, the NFL and the city of San Diego lost a leader on Wednesday (May 2,2012). Junior Seau, (who played for the San Diego Chargers from 1990-2002) committed suicide and was found deceased in his home Wednesday morning. Being that I am a long time Charger fan and resident of San Diego, I was devastated by the news. I was out grocery shopping when I heard about the tragic event.
As a young girl growing up in San Diego, I was raised around football and my beloved team; the Chargers. My favorite was Seau. I admired him and was so intrigued by him. My favorite thing was his little arm pump and leg kick he would do after he made a play! That always hyped me up. I believe it was my 7th birthday (I'm guessing), my uncle gave me my very first Chargers jersey; my favorite player and crush, Junior Seau. I remember vivdly going to a Charger game with my dad and grandpa sporting my new jersey and being so excited to finally be able to see my favorite football player play live!
So when I heard the news of his passing, I was in shock. Still am to be honest. I know I didn't know the man, but I am so saddened but this tragedy. My heart goes out to his family and most importantly his poor children. It's unfortunate that Junior was unable to fight these demons within him. I wish he would have loved himself as much as everyone else loved him. I hope he is finally at peace. RIP Junior. You will be missed.
In honor of Junior Seau and the impact that he had on me, the NFL and our local community, I wanted to show my support by expressing myself through my nail art and creating a manicure inspired by him.
