Junior Seau to Promote NFL in L.A.

Chargers fans sifting the tea leaves for hints about whether the team will soon be moving north may want to head to downtown Los Angeles this Sunday for a visit with Junior Seau.

The Chargers ex-linebacker--who in February 1997 called mayor Susan Golding "a great leader" for her $78 million plan to expand Jack Murphy stadium--is set to appear this weekend at an event called the Verizon Training Ground at L.A. LIVE, owned by AEG, would-be developer of Farmers Field.

That venue is widely viewed as a possible future destination for San Diego's team.

"Are you ready to experience football in downtown L.A?" asks a blog post on FarmersField.com. "Beginning Saturday, December 17, come visit the Verizon Training Ground at L.A. LIVE. At the Training Ground you can test your athletic skills and meet, take photos with and get autographs from professional football legends.

"The Verizon Training Ground is the ultimate experience for football fans in Los Angeles, with games and trivia that will challenge all...And after you're done competing against your family and friends, don't forget to stick around to meet some of California's most notable football legends."

Seau is set to appear from 3:45 to 5:30 in the afternoon on Sunday. Other scheduled greats are running back Marcus Allen, defensive back Ronnie Lott, and wide receiver Tim Brown.

In 2003 Seau was traded to the Miami Dolphins and subsequently played for the New England Patriots.

But he's always been a local favorite, and last month was inducted into the Chargers hall of fame at the game against the Denver Broncos at Qualcomm.

He's also noted here for establishing Seau's The Restaurant in Mission Valley, as well as his widely-publicized domestic problems.
