It's always the quiet guy.....Mark Johnson.Had to share this story;
I was talking to a former player a while back about crazy stuff that goes on and he gave me this gem;
Leading up to the 1984 Olympics the team played a bunch of exhibition games. They were in Alaska
when they received their stipend. Different players do different things with their money like we all think they would. There was one particular player, that I will not name, (but I’m sure you could figure it out by looking at the roster) that went a bit too far.
The team had breakfast the next morning and the player did not show up. Players and coaches started asking each other where he was. They checked his room…nothing. Called the hospitals in case he was injured overnight…nothing. They then called the police and found him locked up.
When some players went to bail him out he told them what had happened.
He ended up with 2 hookers in a hotel room. They rolled him, taking his money and running. When he finally figured it out he was ****ed. He ran out in the street looking for them in his underwear…just as a police car rolled up to him.
They squashed it once they knew who he was. He never got the money back.
I will not confirm nor deny any name.
