READY TO RETIRE?

Posted on: August 21, 2009 10:30 am
 
Why are athletes never ready to retire?
In my life it started with Michael Jordan, Brett Favre and now John Shmoltz. All of these players have had great careers and are all going in to the Hall of Fame in their respective sports. Why can they not go off into the sunset with grace. They have made millions of dollars on and off the playing field. When your time is up and your career is over please just say goodbye. Why must we have retire parties 2 and 3 times before you actually leave. If you are a middle of the road player I can almost understand trying to keep your career alive. But the likes of Michael Jordan is rated as one of the best basketball players of all times, as is Favre and Shmoltz. Each time they retire and come back they do not do even half as good as they did when they played before retiring.
Michael Jordan will not be remembered for his time in Washington, Brett Favre did nothing with the Jets and does anybody believe he will take the Minnesota Vikings to the Super Bowl this year. As for John Shmoltz he has gone from a starter to a reliever and then back to a starter after major surgery, please just say you are done, you have gone to ST. Louis in hopes of regaining your stardom and carrying them to the playoffs, but we have just watched your last year and only their explosive offense will help you make it to the 5th inning and beyond.
When it is time to retire all athletes should go out on top of their sport and say THANKYOU for a great career.

READY TO RETIRE?

It's the fact that when they decide to retire, they realize there is nothing else out there for them to do. Their wives have spent all the money so they have to come back to keep the bankroll coming in.

I think it's fairly obvious. Wait until you're 35+ and see if you feel "too old" to do anything you've always done, especially if you're an athlete.

The same with former Seahawk great Shaun Alexander. it just killed me and i'm sure all the other die hard Hawks fans out there, to see him playing in a dreadful maroon redskin jersey. (which he looked horrible in) This seems to repeat its self year after year with great sports players in any sport. Their bodies are done playing but in their mind they are still a 20 year old superman. Their best bet is to just retire after their peak as to not degrade themselves anymore or god forbid, hurt themselves trying to play at a competitive level. Please, save your dignity and just retire..

READY TO RETIRE?

Pretty easy to answer this one, imagine the best job ever. Let's say you are 21 years old and in your prime, you have a 1 year internship working at the Playboy mansion. After your 12 months are up, would you want to go?
These men are making millions of dollars doing something most of us dream about and they are or were the best at their sports. You really think they want to retire? I don't blame them for hanging on as long as possible, I know I would.
