Professional athletes understand what they are getting into when they choose this path. The adoring fans, the sometimes over-exuberant groupies, money, cars, the lifestyle, the overbearing media, the paparazzi, comped meals, chilling in the VIP section of all the hottest clubs, and the endorsements. When victorious they are treated like heroes, and when they lose they may be jeered.
Boo. Fricking. Hoo.
