Junior Seau had CTE

The last day of the Christmas Trip we turned at the ocean, keeping it on the right. To celebrate a calm sunny morning we stopped and took photos against the calm blue of the Pacific. Then we headed for San Diego, right past the house of Junior Seau.

It's where the NFL player and native of Oceanside committed suicide eight months ago on the last day of the Route 66 trip. 

The results of the brain study were just published this week. They found CTE from 20 years in the NFL, taking hits to the head. He was 43 and if he had lived longer, dementia would have been his reward.

So far after studying 34 brains of former NFL players they've found CTE in 33 of them. 

The house has a new owner now.
