    Mr Energy. Mr Love. A one of a kind individual that cannot be replaced.

    Mental illness is a killer.
    Now, if you excuse me, I have some Charger memories to suppress.

      It seriously was one of the top 5 moments in my life.

        Whilst JH( and others!) might lead us to our first NFL Championship, NO ONE will EVER surpass Junior as the greatest Bolt ever.

          Been a Charger fan since 1986 (since I was 6 years old, because my father has been a Charger fan since Balboa Park, I followed the tradition)

          Me and my brother were at La Jolla UTC just outside the arcade and ice skating area, this was in Aug 1992 (training camp to be exact).
          My brother says to me; I think that guy is JR Seau (he was walking around with his wife)
          We ran as fast as we can, the funny thing was that when we catch and I was in front of him I was mute, I was so impressed (I was 12) I could not talk

          JR, notice that and told me, hey Buddy want me to autograph that cool Charger Cap you got on.
          That's when I relaxed and I could speak, and said yes please.

          Next day we went to SDU to see them practice and notice JR took more than 30 min after a 2 hour practice to sign autographs to kids (lot of respect).

          JR is the #1 reason why I'm a Charger Fanatic.
          Cool story Rikardo. Thank you for sharing.

We strategized on how to get a pict with him. We ordered and about 15 - 20 minutes later he comes out with his lunch and sits down next to us as ours came out. It was 2001 I think. Seau's was really slow at the time, we were the only 2 at the bar. I doubt it's still in business. He came over and sat down and just started chatting with us. He was so damn cool. Just a freaking awesome person. Then I remember how sick it made me feel on 5/2.
            What a great memory to have SuperCharged!
            Dude was San Diego, thru and thru.
