As children, many of us had dreams and hopes of being a professional athlete one day but sadly, only a few of us have what it takes to make it big. Male athletes are some of the most fawned over people in the world. Men want to be them, women want to date them and almost everyone knows their names. Although there is a lot of pressure being in the spotlight, the risk is not as great as the reward. Being a professional athlete gives you a certain status that opens doors to better parties, faster cars and more beautiful women. Although it doesn’t necessarily bring you happiness, we are sure getting paid loads of money to do what you love doesn’t bring these men misery either.
