I’d like to ask that all people take a moment of silence on 5/5 at 5:55 p.m. pacific time. Please do so for 55 seconds in remembrance of one of the finest players to ever set foot on a football field, Junior Seau. I am not afraid to admit that I am currently balling my eyes out. You will be missed by millions, Junior. Rest in peace.
The FanSided Sports Network, the fastest growing independent sports media company on the internet, will shut down all 32 of its NFL websites on May 5th at exactly 5:55 PM Pacific Time to observe a moment of silence for recently deceased NFL great Junior Seau. The moment of silence will last for five minutes and has been recognized by Reggie Bush of the Miami Dolphins, Peter King of Sports Illustrated and thousands of others.
“At FanSided the fans come first. When it became apparent to us that David (Booga) Peters’ tribute resonated so much with the NFL world, we wanted to support this sign of respect to an NFL great,” said Patrick Allen, FanSided’s VP of Content.
“It’s only a game but we cheer just as much for the name on the back of the jersey as we do the logo on the helmet.”
