the ancient mariner
All athletes think they are special—-and usually their body is—
but as a rule the mind is far behind. Idolized all through their youth
they just expect it to go on forever——–no need to study or work
at anything but their body—–and then the day comes when the
body gets hurt. or runs out of steam———see how fast they are
forgotten and broke. Where were Ali’s friends when he need them?
Ask Mike Tyson who just last week said his life has been a disaster.
Ask former Knick Captain Walt Williams who went through millions
and is now a homeless dude on the streets.
