Interesting story about exceptional athlete with SA


Bryan Fogarty was an amazing hockey player who had SA which pretty much ruined a very promising career, here's the link for the story

Re: Interesting story about exceptional athlete with SA


That's a refreshing article to read. Being as into hockey as I am, I can tell you that all the hockey world gives a **** about is that Fogarty was a drunk and an addict. It just goes to show how society in general could give two ****s about social anxiety. If I would have been as good as he was and made it as far as he did, I probably would have followed the same path.

It's very ironic that I read this as I have a 6-pack ingested in me right now....and I just found some rum in the basement. I feel like I could carry on any conversation when I feel like this, and it's how I think I should feel sober.

(For the record, I don't drink this much very often at all. I can't even remember the last time I drank a whole 6-pack in one night.)
