Who do we consider role models ? Many children today consider his or her favorite singers, movie stars or favorite athletes. With so much pressure athletes go through should we look up to them or just wait to be disappointed by a childish act.OJ Simpson was an All-American football player and also in the NFL Hall of Fame. He was the first athlete to rush for 2,000 yards in a season. Not only was he a successful athlete but also he starred in movies. OJ seemed like an All-American person. All of his fame on the field is overshadowed by his appearance off the field.
In 1994, he was on trial for the murder of his wife, but later acquitted from the charges in a really controversial case. In 2006, he wrote a book "If I Did It" which stirred up more controversy. The book was about a first-person fictional account about how he would of committed a murder. The book was never released. Recently, OJ was arrested for kidnapping and robbery. He was trying to get back old memorabilia. Was there a different solution? Did we see this coming? Maybe the pressure is too much for athletes.
