Ladainian Tomlinson held his press conference for his retirement today and borrowed the words of the late great Junior Seau and said that he feels like he is graduating today. Of course that made people wonder if he could see a possible return to the game under any circumstance. He responded and said that he has thought about retirement for a while and he doesn’t see a return happening.
LT talked about how much he loved beating up on the Raiders. He remembered his very first home game against the Raiders and Oakland almost had as many fans at the Q as Chargers fans. He swore that would not happen again as long as he was a Bolt. As a football player coming out of Texas, rivalry games were big and the Raiders were his rivalry game. One of LT’s favorite memories was beating the Raiders 7 or 8 games straight.
LT is graduating! Congrats to our San Diego great on an awesome career that thrilled us fans.
