The “Plight” of the Athlete

Every time I turn around an athlete is in the news. Not because of their athletic ability but for their scandalous behaviors. Exhibit A, Lamar Odom. Now as many of you already know Lamar Odom has not been on his A game lately which has earned him the free agent status. As a fan of his I kept asking myself, “what is going on with him?” Well recently I found out exactly what is going on, he is on crack. Why Lamar??? You had it all, beautiful wife, recovering career, and what do you? You decide that crack is the better option. Moving on to Exhibit B, Terrell Owens. He dominated the NFL during his career as a wide receiver. For his talent he earned a total of $80 million. But between being sued by three of his four baby mama’s and bad investments he is now broke. Owens claims it’s because his agent Drew Rosenhaus led him astray, which may or may not be true. But when will he begin taking responsibility for his own actions? Come on T.O., get it together. Exhbiit C, Johnny Manziel. While he only received a slap on the wrist for the whole autograph scandal, if he doesn’t tread learn from that mistake he could easily end up like Owens or Odom. Success is a wonderful thing, but athletes need to remember, the higher you go the harder you fall.
