Junior Seau, horse trainer

Longtime NFL linebacker (man, I thought he retired) Junior Seau is being featured on a new show on Versus called Sports Jobs with Junior Seau. On the show he tries out different sports related jobs. On January 20th of the new year he'll try his hand out as a horse trainer. This one should be must see TV for horse racing buffs.

Horse racing has proven to be a decent reality show venue with last year's introduction of Jockeys that has catapulted the images of racing jocks like Joe Talamo, Mike Smith and Chantal Sutherland. The fact that Versus jumps on the bandwagon can only be a good thing for our sport. Ironically, when I held a poll several months ago asking which television station would be best served to replace ESPN, this is the network that topped my unscientific poll decisively.

Seau's new show has him trying out different sports jobs such as cut man for a MMA fight, major league bat boy, stadium construction crew worker, NHL equipment manager, pit crew member (Indy Car), Sports Illustrated sportswriter, LPGA Tour caddie, a member of an arena conversion crew and a bullfighter at an event in Toronto (video).

According to Alan Pergament's article in the Buffalo News this morning, a Versus press release stated that "Seau will feed, groom, shoe, clean and care for racehorses, and then do the dirtiest job he's done yet … castrate a live horse."

Can you Say Ow?
