Train Wreck

Holy Shit! $50 million dollars, last of three wives in jail for meth production and distribution, slumping game, etc...

I feel bad for the guy, but it's up to him at this point.

It must be rough when losing 50-60 million "could" ruin you.

Just "could".

I feel so not bad at all for this guy.

My life looks great now however.

I think it is important to realize that a book about how he's been clean and sober for the last ten years (not saying that is the case) probably wouldn't sell as many copies.

I wonder if he'd want in on our next round of football picks.

Shmoopie could probably dollar-bet him out of at least a few thousand during a game.

I betcha a dollar he'd go for it.

As much as he F's up he does some good too. Exerpts found on The Golf Channel web site:

Clearly, there's more to Daly than a few drinks, a few smokes, a few wives and more than a few tugs on the slot machine.

He gave $30,000 to the family of a man killed by lightning at Crooked Stick in 1991 after he won the PGA Championship -- as a rookie, when $30,000 meant something to him. Daly met the victim's daughters last year. Both had graduated from college because of his gift.

He raises $60,000 a year for the Boys & Girls Clubs in Arkansas, and the John Daly Make-A-Wish Foundation Tournament has raised $5 million over the last 12 years.

Oh yoda, you're such a bleeding heart.

I root for JD, but the guy is in big trouble. I sympathize with anybody whose in big trouble like that, but he's clearly not hit rock bottom in his eyes and it appears that'll be what it'll take in order for him to wrestle his demons.

He's like the Rick James of golf.

There is no Rick James of golf - that's just impossible.
