This year’s Maxim Hot 100 features a woman that doesn’t even exist. Well for everyone except Manti Te’o! Maxim included Te’o’s fake girlfriend No. 69 in this year’s list. Have to give them credit for their creativity. Meanwhile, I can’t give them credit for putting Miley Cyrus No. 1. Hannah Montana? Really?!
Former USC, San Diego Charger, Miami Dolphin and New England Patriots linebacker Junior Seau, one of the greatest to ever play the game, committed suicide Wednesday reportedly from a gunshot wound to his chest. He was just 43 years old. On the day NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell suspended the New Orleans Saints Jonathon Vilma for a year for his role in putting bounty’s on players obviously a lot of people are speculating that it was the hits he took throughout his career that could have led him to taking his own life. Many are comparing it to former Chicago Bear Dave Duerson who took his life the same way. Before anyone forms that opinion I think it makes sense to wait and see what the autopsy returns since there are millions of people that suffer from depression every day that didn’t play football. But I will have to admit it seems likely all those years playing the game he loved may have contributed to this. Above is the heart wrenching video of his mom reacting to the news and below are a few video tributes showing the type of man and player he was. Rest in peace.
