I have absolutely no idea why… I’m not a big sports’ fan myself. So if someone could help me with this answer? Because the best I can come up with, is that people idolize them because they wish they could be as good as them. They put them on this little pedestal because they are so great and so good at what they do, and of course, when they fall off the pedestal and do something ‘out of character’, people go haywire about it. Shame.
What do you think?
