So many athletes have it all. Most of us will spend a lifetime trying to scrape together a tiny fraction of what they’ve got in their early 20s. And the sad part is, most of us won’t even get close!
They’ve got the fame. They’ve got the looks. They’ve got the talent. They’ve got the girls. And, of course, they've got the money. And some of them have had it all for so long that they don’t even know what to do with it anymore. For many athletes there seems to be a tipping point where a comfortable home and a nice set of wheels just doesn’t rev the engine like it used to.
It’s starts off small, usually. Some customized details on the Benz. Which leads to another car...or two. Then a new vacation home, so there is somewhere to drive the new cars. And then, before you know it, they’re spending their days in the casino and their nights at home bidding on dinosaur bones on eBay. Which leaves them teetering on the verge of financial ruin for the rest of their days.
It’s probably a finer line than most of us even realize.
