Chargers Will Retire Junior Seau’s Number 55 at Home Opener


The San Diego Chargers promotions team have some big plans for the home opener against the Tennessee Titans. The team will wear their all white uniforms and the team is asking the fans to wear all white to the game. They are calling it a white hot Sunday.

During pregame festivities, the team plans to retire Junior Seau’s number 55 jersey. The team will also sport a number 55 helmet decal that will be worn during the game. It is not known yet if they will wear the number the whole season, but those plans will probably be disclosed soon. (TMZ)

The Oakland Raiders plan on having big time Raiders fans Ice Cube and KISS singer Gene Simmons to open their pregame festivities on Monday Night. Maybe the Chargers can have Kendra Wilkinson and Mario Lopez out for our opening day? Don’t know what they would do, but they are big time Chargers fans.
