Day of Joy And Sorrow In So Cal Sports History
- Jareen, CNN iReport producer
What a day in in LA and So Cal Sports history.
We started off with a happy note, as the Dodgers sale became official with a news conference at Dodger Stadium. New owner LA Lakers legend Magic Johnson announced that 'It's all about the fans baby'...He immediately lowered the parking from $15 to $10...
Then things here turned tragic, when in the early afternoon, USC and Chargers great Junior Seau was found dead in his hometown of Oceanside, CA.
He was one of the greatest linebackers of all time, for both the Trojans and the NFL. Officials in Oceanside are calling it a 'probable suicide'. God bless his family and friends, this is such a horrible loss - Mr Seau was only 43 years old.
And tonight, here in Anaheim, the Thrill of Victory for the Angels. The teams ace, Jered Weaver, threw the second no-hitter of the young MLB season.
From agony to ecstasy, from defeat to victory. What a day for Southern California sports...
