I actually played 1-AA football for a couple years but wasn't quite good enough to get consistent playing time. I'm 24, a recent college grad, have a nice girlfriend but sometimes feel like i didn't accomplish anything because of this. Seeing athletes on tv that are my age and even younger make me always think what could have been and is upsetting. Anyone else ever think or feel this way?
Of course, when you're 42, you'll probably be at the height of your career, while most players your age will have retired from sports and are trying to figure out what to do after sports. I think it ticks me off more when I hear of players my age who are retired and broke because they burned through all that money they made.
Burn down the disco. Hang the blessed DJ. Because the music that he constantly plays, it says nothing to me about my life.
