    John Daly: Rehab is for quitters!

    http://www.digtriad.com/news/top/art...13239&catid=14


    I hate to use the word "Party" as a verb. Sounds trashy. "Hey dude. Let's party!" Like from your beastly friend who wants to continue acting like a college tool even though he's 35 or so. You've grown separate in your ways. You want to raise a family, be respected in your neighborhood, maybe volunteer as a soccer coach for your kid's team. He wants to wake up in a jail cell smelling like cheap vodka with a new tattoo of the Tamanian Devil.

    Where was I going with this? Oh ... But golfer, John Daly sure can partay.

    Didn't he go to rehab for alcoholism? Then said F-it, I like to drink. I heard he also has his own golf course and invites his friends over to watch him golf shirtless, shoeless, in a pair of jeans.

    Judging from the puffy look of him in his photo, that's got to be really attractive.

    I'm glad this is a laugh riot for all of you. Right up until he kills himself I suppose.

    The man does what he does because that what he wants to does - er - do. He wins every once and while to keep his dream alive and enjoys the rest of his time off the golf course.

    I don't think it's a laugh riot. I think it's yet another example of how celebrities and sports figures are given numerous chances to run themselves into the ground, over and over, and still get the chance to come back and play without any repercussions (Steve Howe or Darryl Strawberry, anyone?).

    If this guy was a regular Joe and pulled this kind of stunt he'd be fired.

    Alcoholism to his degree is a problem. He has other deeper issues he is battling.

    The repercussions are that these losers will be forgiven by their fans who will continue to attend baseball games, football games, golf tournaments, etc. Howe, Strawberry, Daly and the rest WOULDN'T have jobs if the public stopped enabling them.

    If you really believe this, you simply don't get it.

    There's a shock.

    My favorite athlete of all time is Keith Hernandez. He did coke but it didn't interfere with his job. I don't judge their personal life as long as they don't bring it to work. They are athletes and entertains . Not parents or role models.

    K. Hernandez did coke for a couple of years, recreationally (not hard core addict style), and had given it up before he ever got to the Mets. Keith was never sick. He was just a young guy who partied a little too hard and managed to grow out of it.

    J. Daly is clearly a hard core, late stage, terminal (if he does not get sober) alcoholic. He will (quite literally) drink himself to death. God only knows the carnage he will cause and how many others (family members, friends, innocent bystanders) he will drag down with him on his path to hell. Daly is sick. Very, very sick. Mr. Daly will not grow out of it. He'll either get sober, or he'll die.

    Cracks me up just thinking about it. Oh, you think I'm being dramatic about this? Uh-huh. Stay tuned. I've seen this movie before, and it never has a happy ending.

    He has been going through this his whole career. He is almost finished a full career already.. I doubt you will see him dead while still a pro. Maybe soon after but not during.

    John Daly isn't drinking because it's fun. It's long since stopped being fun. He's not drinking because he wants to. He's drinking because he can't stop drinking. God help John Daly.

    I hope he finds his bottom soon while he's still alive.

    So true. Look at how often these guys get off with few or no consequences.

    Darryl Strawberry
    Keith Hernandez
    Lenny Dykstra
    Dwight Gooden...

    The rest of the 80's Mets...

    K. Hernandez never had an addiction problem, not ever. He is now a very successful and well respected broadcaster in NY.

    And who can blame him? I hate most other teams besides the Mets.

    P.S. No team was more hate-worthy than the 1986 NY Mets. Which made their victory that much sweeter.



    I was at Shea for Games 6 and 7. I'll never forget it.

    I agree. Nothing is quite as appalling as some reality show about rehab.

    Now that's entertainment.
