Manage episode 270873088 series 1520935
This week, we transport back to the 70s to look at a man who had it all, talent, ability, style... and a rip roarin' drug habit that consumed all in its path. So much so, that he went from being the first Black starting quarterback in the post-merger NFL era & being on the cover of Sports Illustrated, all the way down to a ton of arrests, including robbing a fast food restaurant at knifepoint, and eventual homelessness. Did he ever make it back, or did his lifestyle finally take him under, for good? This one is indescribably nuts!
Be an idol to many, and a source of anger to others, never let them cramp your style, and always hold at least one crack rock with "Jefferson Street" Joe Gilliam!!
Check us out, every Tuesday!
We will continue to bring you the biggest idiots in sports history!!
