Erica Blasberg, The golden carrot. No need to be vegetarian or a donkey to want to take a bite of it. It’s the American dream hanging in front of us, promising money, fame and all benefits of the greatness of the mind can conjure.
Not everyone, however, can handle – especially our young athletes, who often are not mature enough to cope with the riches of the carrot, he said.
Erica Blasberg only knows where everything went wrong for the former University of Arizona and a prominent LPGA.
The 25 year old took his own life earlier this summer in Las Vegas.
On Thursday, his doctor, Thomas Hess, pleaded guilty to misdemeanor obstruction of his death. He received one year probation and 40 hours of community service.
Hess, according to the Associated Press, pulled out a suicide note and prescripteion pills to prevent the family from shame.
Young athletes themselves are a golden carrot for many a donkey – the agents and the hawks in the approval of entourages and anyone else with sharp teeth.
DB’s case is, of course, is an independent entity. But you can not deny it’s a thread on a small trend.
Conrad Murray, the personal physician of the late pop star Michael Jackson is an obvious example that comes to mind.
In a strange coincidence, the singer’s father Joe Jackson re-filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Murray in the same day of the sentence Hess.
If we can not trust our doctors, we can trust to do right? Who we will eat vegetables when everybody just wants to steal our carrots?
