Junior Seau’s House Was Robbed

Junior Seau's house was robbed five days after Seau was found dead in his Oceanside home.

Just about two weeks later after reports broke out of former NFL Linebacker, Junior Seau’s death new reports are breaking tonight as they’re saying that Seau’s house was robbed.

The home of Seau’s was burglarized last week on May 7th according to police officials who told the North County Times on Tuesday. The robbery came just five days after Seau’s death which officials diagnosed as a suicide.

The Times reported that someone forcibly entered the Oceanside home’s garage through the doggy door at roughly 2 p.m. PT on May 7th. The thief went through the cabinets before stealing a bicycle worth around $500 that was the property of a friend of Seau, the paper said.

Oceanside police Lt. Leonard Mata told the Times that the burglar did not enter other sections of the home and the only item that appeared to be missing was the bike.

“I can’t put into words how I’m feeling right now. I’m shocked and devastated. Junior was my friend. We all lost a friend today. Junior was an icon in our community. He transcended the game. He wasn’t just a football player, he was so much more. He was loved by everyone in our family, our organization and throughout the NFL. This is just such a tragic loss. One of the worst things I could ever imagine. My prayers go out to Junior’s family. It’s heartbreaking,” said San Diego Chargers Team President, Dan Spanos in a statement following Seau’s death back on May 2nd.

Seau was 43, before he took his life on that day that will forever remain a tragic day for not only his family members and friends, but for NFL fans and sports fans all over the world.

Seau’s suicide now marks the 12th suicide done by an NFL player within the past 25 years.

Could Linsanity Happen Again?

Could it happen again?

On February 4th Jeremy Lin who scored 25 points off the bench against the depleted New Jersey Nets lifted the Knicks to a 99-93 victory which gave the Knicks, a team who at the time was very bad, hope.

Lin as a result to his 25 point performance would start in the Knicks next game. Playing against the Utah Jazz, Lin, playing in front of a home crowd once again lifted the Knicks to a 99-88 victory. Lin would score 28 points marking a new career high for him as the Knicks would win again.

The winning would continue as the Knicks would win five straight improving them to, 15-15. As for Lin not only would his performance continue but Knicks fans and others in the sports world would put a name to all of the madness calling it, Linsanity.

Though, nearly two months later “Linsanity” as they called it would come to an end, at least for the 2012 season as it appeared after Lin injured his knee.

“I can’t really do much. Can’t really cut or jump, so it’s pretty clear that I won’t be able to help the team unless I get this fixed right now,” Lin told reporters back in March. “It’s disappointing for me, it’s hard to watch the games and I think I’d want to be out there obviously more than anything right now. But hopefully, it’s a six-week rehab process but I tend to heal fast, so hopefully I can come back as soon as possible and still contribute this season hopefully.”

“Hopefully” was the word and “hope” is all what is left for this Knicks team as they trail the Miami Heat 3-1 in the opening round of the NBA Playoffs. However, despite trailing three games to one as the Knicks will travel to Miami on Wednesday where their 2012 season could potentially come to an end with a Miami win, there’s still hope, a lot of it.

The reason being; guard, Jeremy Lin. Reports broke Monday that Lin could possibly play against the Heat on Wednesday though according to Knicks head coach, Mike Woodson, it’s not likely.

“We’ll gauge it today and tomorrow, but I’m not counting on Jeremy Lin to play,” Woodson said during a conference call Monday. “So we’ve just got to continue where we’ve been in terms of guys in uniform. But I’m not counting on him to play. That’s how it’s been here in the last month and a half and that’s how I’m preparing.”

Woodson would go onto add that Lin’s conditioning isn’t that great and that Lin hasn’t played in a while.

“I’ve watched him shoot and run up and down, he’s not in great shape,” Woodson said. “You know as well as I know, playoff basketball, you’ve got to be (in peak condition). And he hasn’t played in a while, so I don’t know if that’s going to be a determining factor with the doctors.”

Though, despite being a “long-shot” to play on Wednesday its Jeremy Lin we’re talking about here. His whole NBA career has been a “long-shot.” Did anyone expect him to have this crazy season, we’re calling, Linsanity? Did anyone expect him to even play, let alone start? No, no, and no. So don’t count this 23 year old kid out of anything and with him in the Knicks line-up, don’t count them out either. Linsanity round two?

New York Knicks Get Worse News Today Following Up Amare Stoudemire’s Post-Game Inccident

Will the Knicks be better off without Stoudemire?

As more news and updates from the story that topped headlines last night about New York Knicks Forward, Amare Stoudemire who out of frustration punched the glass casing which held a fire extinguisher in the AmericanAirlines Arena hallway last night, aren’t that good for Knicks fans.

According to ESPN the Magazine’s Chris Broussard who witnessed the incident live had this to say.

“He didn’t haul off and punch the glass; he hit it out of frustration,” told Broussard to ESPN. “He kind of slapped it, but with a closed fist. He said he thought it was plastic instead of glass.”

Broussard would go onto describe Stoudemire’s hand as a result to hitting the glass casing.

“Half of his hand was just hanging off. It was really bad. Blood was just squirting out. That’s why they had the paramedics come in, because they thought he might have punctured an artery because of how much blood was coming out.”

Another league source said that while waiting outside the Knicks locker room to conduct post-game interviews, people could be heard from inside calling for towels to tend the injured Stoudemire in efforts to stop the bleeding the source said.

According to the team Stoudemire saw a hand specialist on Tuesday who repaired a “small muscle” in his hand. Though, despite needing stitches, according to another source Stoudemire didn’t suffer any ligament or tendon damage.

Stoudemire, who will miss game three according to the Knicks on Tuesday, is listed as question for the remainder of the series, depending on how long it goes. However, Stoudemire who didn’t comment on the injury to reporters would comment on his twitter late last night.

“I am so mad at myself right now,” Stoudemire posted. “I want to apologize to the fans and my team, not proud of my actions. headed home for a new start.”

Following up what he said before, Stoudemire would post another tweet saying, “We all have done thing out of anger that we regret. That makes us human. Bad timing on my part. Sorry guys. This to shall pass.”

On a better a note, the Knicks will take on the Miami Heat at home on Thursday, in front of a Madison Square Garden crowd who’s pleading for a win. The game is set to tip off at 7:00 P.M. Eastern time on TNT.

“The series is still up in the air. It’s their home court. It’s our turn now. We can’t wait to get back and protect home court. We’ve got to keep everybody positive. It’s far from over,” said Forward, Carmelo Anthony.
