    The girlfriend was a champ. I don't think I could have held myself together. She was only gone for an hour too... Poor thing.

    Junior Seau, one of the NFL's best and fiercest players for nearly two decades, had a degenerative brain disease when he committed suicide last May, the National Institutes of Health told The Associated Press on Thursday.

    Results of an NIH study of Seau's brain revealed abnormalities consistent with chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE).

    The NIH, based in Bethesda, Maryland, conducted a study of three unidentified brains, one of which was Seau's. It said the findings on Seau were similar to autopsies of people "with exposure to repetitive head injuries."

    I could've told you being hit in the head for years will fuck something up.

    I think many locals wondered what had happened when he drove off the cliff. After his suicide, I wondered about a brain injury. I'm glad we know this now, it explains a lot. He was a really great man and his hometown loved him.
