You didn’t have to be a Chargers fan to be a Junior Seau fan. You didn’t have to be Samoan or Polynesian to be a Junior Seau fan. To be a fan of Seau was to be a fan of a man who played like a true warrior on the field, and became a proud ambassador of his people off the field.

Seau was on the ‘94 Chargers team that beat my beloved Pittsburgh Steelers in the AFC Conference Championship. Everything about that game upset me and from that point forward I declared the Chargers one of my most hated teams. The player I excluded from that hate was Seau. I could never hate a player that good, I could never hate a man so proud to be who he was.
