Quote Of The Day
“Maybe the trickiest decision for elite athletes is knowing when is when, accurately weighing twinkling star with emptying hourglass, distinguishing long shadows from darkness. Complicating the calculations are money and celebrity, and the result too often is the pitiful shell of a former self. … Bolt should have sailed into the Jamaican sunset after the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, where he won his obligatory three gold medals … If Bolt was courageous but imprudent, the 40-year-old ‘Money’ Mayweather was cowardly but ingenious. In boxing you can pick your opponent, and he did with a nod toward his legacy and his nickname: shunning the sport’s top contenders for an MMA fighter who had lost three times in UFC and never boxed professionally … Their final acts may have played differently on stage, but their departures leave similarly toxic exhaust fumes. Both were transcendent figures, and despite their best intentions they ultimately elevated themselves more than their declining sports.”
