My First Fantasy Football Draft

27 Aug

You may have noticed I was missing in action yesterday. My absence was in part because of recovering from a night of drunk debauchery but also because I was preparing for my first ever Fantasy Football Draft.

The Mystery of Junior Seau

21 Aug

The autopsy for football player Junior Seau was released and found that the player had no alcohol or illicit drugs in his system. They also did not find evidence of brain damage, which could have been caused by his many years of being knocked into on the field. There was speculation that brain damage might have been involved in his suicide.His family has given parts of his brain over to the National institute of Health for further examination. Seau was only 43 when he was found dead in his home by his girlfriend with a bullet in his chest.

No one in his life had any indication that he was suicidal. Some people thought that Seau had tried to commit suicide before in 2010 when he drove his car down a cliff but Seau had denied that claim. So it remains a mystery why Seau would want to end his life so soon.
