A Man's Downfall
When I read his story, it seemed quite funny.
What did this guy do with all his money?
He earned eighty million dollars during his athletic career.
Somewhere on the road of life, he took a bum steer.
He had two best friends from his television show.
Both women took the man and gave him the heave-ho.
It is not just a rainy day where this fellow is concerned.
He’s enduring a hurricane, and he’s getting burned.
He will not receive offers from any professional team.
The man must get some other work, it would seem.
From a news story found on AOL.
