    I attended the Junior Seau Celebration of Life at Qualcomm Stadium yesterday with about 20,000 other fans. It was a classy, fitting ceremony. Retiring his jersey was the perfect ending. There were funny times (every time "Raiders" was mentioned, the whole crowd booed), happy times (when a great moment was shared) and some very somber times. I loved the personal stories from the speakers' perspectives that shed light on what kind of person Junior was. When L.T. spoke, I got teary. I can't even begin to fathom what his children are going through...

    SAN DIEGO, CA - MAY 3: Carolyn Mitchell helps relocate a memorial for NFL Legend Junior Seau that has been building as fans show their respect to the recently deceased football star at the entrance way of Seau's Restaurant in Mission Valley on May 3, 2012 in San Diego, California. (Photo by Kent C. Horner/Getty Images)
    Seau's Restaurant in Mission Valley ceased operations Wednesday.
    The restaurant was owned by former Chargers Pro Bowler Junior Seau who was found dead of a self-inflicted gunshot wound inside his Oceanside home on May 2.
    Former director with the Junior Seau Foundation Bette Hoffman announced the decision Wednesday afternoon.
    "Without Seau’s charismatic leadership, it was felt that the future profitability of the restaurant could be in question," read a statement announcing the closure.
    The restaurant was opened in 1996.

    Its all over Twitter that Seau's closed it doors. I just happened to walk by there yesterday, as I was shopping next door at Bed, Bath and Beyond. It was deserted.:(

    Yeah, the news said the employees showed up for work and they were told that's it. I'm sorry to see Seau's go.

    It sounds like there is more to this story than meets the eye.

    I've only been there once, back in 2000, but I'll never forget the place. I still have the T-shirt I bought there as well as the big plastic drink containers they sent home with customers back in the day. Looks like those will be heirlooms one day soon. :(
