So we have Michael Strahan from the Giants on the show…James Denton from ‘Desperate Housewives’. Both great. But actor Tom Arnold might have stolen the show. I think I asked him one question and he went for ten minutes. And he’s not even on drugs anymore! One thing you have to say about a guy like Tom or like Michael Irvin, another person I know well, they will be honest with their past. They won’t point fingers away from themselves and blame others. They say, ‘here’s what I did…why I did it’.
So it got me to thinking, do you want your athletes honest or careful? Do you want them to say all the right things a la A-Rod or do you want them more like Charles Barkley and Terrell Owens? The media rips a guy when he speaks out and rips him when he says nothing. Is there a happy medium? Is there an athlete who does it the right way…the wrong way?
