another great 30 for 30 documentary from espn. this one tackles the high rate of bankruptcy and financial problems from athletes. it all makes perfect sense, of course. you reach your most marketable at a young age when you are least capable of having the discipline to handle that kind of cash. this is the opposite of the ebb and flow of most careers – start at the bottom, work your way up until you are most profitable in your 50s when you are also most equipped to handle that kind of dough. ultimately the idea of making millions and losing it all by 30 or 40 years old is anathema to me and unacceptable, however i can certainly see how such a thing can happen. great stuff, lots of food for thought.
