Fall From Grace

I've Fallen And I Will Never, Ever be Allowed To Get Back Up

I rarely ask people their opinion but as my wife pointed out I seem to be less of an asshole in the last few weeks so maybe I am softening up a bit.  This topic comes courtesy of my buddy DH who mentioned the above phrase “Largest Fall From Grace Ever” today to me when we were discussing a band.  I list a few of my favorite falls below –

  • Music – Queensryche – This is what brought this topic up in the first place when we were listening to old ‘Ryche and then tested a 2011 album and after realizing we were listening to the worst album of all time.  How a band how 3, maybe 4, great albums and then decided to make crap really is amazing.  Prog rock darlings to basement recording butt of jokes.  That is a truly epic fall from grace.
  • Actor – Mickey Rourke.  Look I know he has come back but I thought he was the next Brando and DeNiro at one time and instead look what he turned out to be.  Maybe his story arc is just longer but still a huge fricking fall from grace.
  • Politics – John Edwards.  Boy you were the golden boy 8 years ago weren’t you.  So close to being the VP and then boom…you sir are a one of a kind and certified asshole.

I could go on and list these one forever but each is the same, so much promise, so much failure.  Any great falls on your radar?

    If T.O. goes from the Arena League into retirement that is a pretty good one too. Although he is at the end of a career and could have just hung it up. I think the moral is quit while you are ahead.

    TO is a big one and that one is a shame. Perception becomes reality and that just killed him.
