Where have you gone, Joe DiMaggio?

Erin, I totally agree with you on this. Years ago, one pro athlete said that it is not in his contract to be a role model for kids. Well guess what. Kids watch these athletes and want to be like them. It may not be in their contract, but once they turn pro, they're already a role model.

These people are handed everything. Yes it takes talent to make it and earn the big bucks, but don't complain. You want to see what your alternative is, switch places with me (lifestyle and salary) and work the whole week all day and make just enough money to make ends meet. Yes these athletes get paid a lot of money to play "a game". Thats all it is, a game.

Heck I would play the game for the minimum salary.

Hey Erin, great blog. I think that "Pacman" Jones had enough chances and the leagues should just ban him. He's only just gonna get in to trouble again. He just seems like the type of person who just doesn't learn his lesson. Also, is one of those piss from TNA Wrestling? I know during his first suspension, he went there for a little bit.
