Talk about the AFC, NFC, the NFL Draft, College Football... anything football that has no Washington Redskin relevance.

Fans, friends, Chargers honor Seau at stadium

There will never be another 55, we know that now for sure.

On a perfectly San Diego evening, in an up-tempo ceremony befitting the man being honored, San Diegans said their final good-bye to Junior Seau on Friday, remembering the county's ultimate hometown sports legend.

A crowd estimated at about 20,000 rocked Qualcomm Stadium as it listened to and sometimes participated in tributes to Seau.

"I don't believe there has ever been a player in the National Football League that has played in a city like San Diego that has done more for that city than what Junior Seau has done for San Diego," said Bobby Ross, who coached the Chargers from 1992 to '96.

For all the speakers, who shared their memories of Seau, the highlight of the night was its finish.

When you reach the end of your rope, tie a knot in it and hold on....

If the world didn't suck we'd all fall off
