You spend your teen years training to make the cut.
You spend your 20s being an idol to millions.
You spend your 30s straining to stay in the game.
Then you retire. And you're only 40 with decades yet to live.
Sounds great, but the thing is you're addicted to the rush. The rush of thousands of cheering fans, of scoring points, of winning, of seeing your face on television.
Where will your highs come from now? Will people continue to adore you? Will they even recognize you in five years?
You need your public, you need your press. (And they both start with P which rhymes with T and that stands for TROUBLE.)
