It’s crazy what the lifespans are for some athletes. Jim Courier retired today at the age of 29. 29! If you think about it, that’s so young. It seems like an eternity ago when he was good. And he’s just 29.
I also wonder what these athletes do for the rest of their lives. You look at the business world, and these people don’t get into power until they’re pretty old. Until then, they’re just working their way up the ladder. But athletes, many are done by 30. What the heck do they do for the next 50 years?
