Creepy Comparison #19: Has Beens

First, one from the sporting world, that's Aaron Boone. Remember when he was an up-and-comer with the Reds? The next big thing? And of course, who got him? The Yankees. Same with Jeff Weaver and Javier Vasquez. One of the bright young stars in the game and they wind up in the Bronx. I died a little inside when it happend. Then he hit that homer off Wakefield in the playoffs and I full on projectile vomited. Then he tore his ACL playing backetball at a YMCA in the offseason and all was right with the world. Adjacent to him is has-been (probably more like never was) actor/stuntman Johnny Knoxville. Hey, that movie about the special olympics wasn't THAT bad.

Aaaaaaand, for the long awaited winner of the people's choice Creepy Comparison, the mysterious poster that went by the name of 'Ice' has won with his suggestion of "The D-Train" Dontrelle Willis and Mushmouth from Fat Albert's gang. Let me tell ya, that's really creepy, well done. And, how nice, they both fit right into the heading of this post. That's right, Willis at age 26 is apparently already a washed up has-been. Good work Detroit on giving this guy who was a 1 trick pony an extention that will wind up doing more harm than good in the long run. Honestly though, I shouldn't be so hard on Mushmouth, he had a good run and nothing lasts forever.
