Being a professional athlete is fucking crazy. You make a dump truck of money. You’re one of a very small fraternity of people who do something as well as you. Millions of people gather to scream your name, some of them even choosing to wear your jersey (which is weird as fuck but that’s another post). It’s absolutely bonkers when you think about it all. You’re admired by men and adored by women. It’s hard not to let it go to your head. That’s why any time a young, high-profile athlete settles down, I bow my head and cringe because really dude? Who do you think you are, Tom Brady?
