    Probably all the "performance enhancing" junk they shoot up their veins.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    It's not just happening in sports; it's also happening with returned vets. No, I don't know what the percent is contrasted with returned vets of other eras, but I wonder if part of this is about weakened coping skills in younger generations more accustomed to easier lives than, say, the "Greatest Generation."

    Note: No disrespect intended to anyone; I'm just aware that "delayed gratification" as a social construct seems to be on the wane in our fast-food/instant-info society.

    I'll chime in to agree with you. Yes, I do think that if "performance-enhancing" substances were being used, this would have an impact.

    The cowardliness and irresponsibility we've grown to tolerate is disgusting. I'm fuming with hatred for this coward right now, especially based on the fact that he had a young daughter.

    More than that, it's the athlete-from-the-hood effect, where no one tells him "no" his entire life, hoping to live off his coattails one day. This girl was leaving him, and he couldn't handle the rejection. It was foreign to him.

    I've seen nothing to give any possibility that the "athlete from the hood" effect applies. In fact, just the opposite. He had to work hard to get where he was at. I think most likely his argument with his wife would have been about a real world problem like infidelity or she had threatened to leave and take the daughter or maybe even the daughter was the result of a little help from a friend. Those are the more common triggers. Of course, no one ever wants to discuss them, but the reality is "human nature." He thanked his coaches before checking out and that indicates some fairly decent priorities. I'm not in the least sympathetic with what he did, just spinning reality.

    On April 25, 1960 our dad shot and killed our mother and then blew his brains out. The reason was that both of 'em were screwing around. Being a Vet or an athlete (which he wasn't had nothing to do with it. Whitlock and Costas simply jumped on a PC baandwagon and ran with it. The kid was selfish. I'm 70 years old and still think of it. It affected my kids. People do this crap all the time. Nothing new or unique here. End of rant.
