Invincible (Sort of)

I don't really follow the NFL very closely, instead preferring the gamely joust of the college game, but I found this article on Vince Young interesting. He nearly quit after his first year in the NFL, which is known to be a difficult year of transition, seriousness and un-fun. And lots and lots of cash. But anyway:

"If nothing else, it's a reminder that we never, ever really know what's going on with our favorite athletes. Or anyone, really. Being rich, being famous, being idolized, being on the cover of Madden ... none of it guarantees that a guy won't be sitting at home crying his eyes out and listening to, I don't know, Elliott Smith albums or something."
And lots and lots of cash.
