Oh, how the mighty have fallen…

Earlier this week, former heavyweight boxing champion Riddick Bowe filed for bankruptcy, citing over four million dollars in debts. This started a great discussion/contest on a Boston talk station, as the host asked callers to cite other people who have “had it all,” and then lost it all. (Before he took a single entry, though, he took Mike Tyson off the table as “too obvious.”) People tossed out names like Michael Jackson, Pee-Wee Herman, O.J. Simpson, and Macauley Culkin. I couldn’t get through, but I didn’t hear anyone suggest the New York EMT who used to be David Lee Roth.

I’d make this a contest, but that would mean I’d have to judge it, and I’m feeling too lazy to do that (I’m taking a four-day weekend mini-vacation as a birthday present to myself). So I’ll just let you folks all pile in and discuss it.

For some reason, I keep thinking that this would be a great thread for Michele Catalano
