    Another great ’30 for 30′ show! Young, unprepared kids from all sports become ‘instant millionaire’ athletes and then blow all of those millions on family & friends, cars, homes, jewelry, minks, wild tigers, gambling, spending sprees, agents, bad investments, and lastly women and taxes. 5 to 10 years later and it’s mostly gone. “Broke”, indeed.
