Trends in sports heros

Ricky Williams, Michael Vick, I. Thomas, now Rashad Williams. Is there a common thread linking these people besides an obvious lack of common sense, over-powering sense of entitlement, and hero worship? Charles Barkley was right--don't treat these people as role models. We, as the ever-hungry, never satiated entertainment driven consumers have a role to play in this stupid gluttony of a drama. Again and again. Why is anyone surprised? This kid had it all ahead of him and had no one to show him the way, to guide him past the temptations and learn to delay gratification. And momma--WAKE UP, you idiot! TYour son is not okay. He blew it and you were asleep at the wheel. Time for a reality check, chick.
