Much hubbub has been made about Gooden’s “E:60″ interview, where the pitcher said he missed the 1986 Mets championship parade because he was high on drugs. But haven’t we heard this before?
At 46, Gooden is in the sixth inning of life, far too early for a hurler of his heft to leave the game. I don’t know the man, yet I love the man. It’s just one of those things.
Dwight Gooden wasn’t the only troubled 1986 Mets great to grace Dr. Drew’s “Celebrity Rehab.” According to Dr. K, Lenny Dykstra made an uninvited appearance to try and break his former teammate out.
Lawrence Taylor stomped the symbolic, spiritual, and legal line when he became sexually intimate with a minor. A girl. This spikes the hairs on any dad’s back and quickens the pulse of people like me, who spent my high school Sundays kneeling at the altar of LT.
Dwight Gooden has famously battled his addiction to drugs and alcohol for decades. Dr. K is hoping Dr. Drew Pinsky’s “Celebrity Rehab” will get him on the right path.
It’s impossible to appreciate how far Josh Hamilton has come unless you know where he’s been.
