Earl is a great American comeback story. He has been laughed at, spit on and booed off stage (to quote M&M). Earl kept on fighting and has become an inspiration to many.Intimidated, really? Which prospective Team USA member(s) do you think would intimidate any of this year's Euro team members? None. However, even the anticipation of Earl's antics may make some of the Euros uncomfortable. I think that's as close to intimidation as anyone is going to get. His behavior during the matches may not be pretty, but it might be kind of fun to see Earl give the Euro fans back some of the same stuff that many of them deal out at every MC. Also, many times it seems that Earl steps his game up a notch when he is feeling everyone is against him.
Is he embarrassing? Sometimes, so was tennis great John Mcenroe
Earl has mental health issues and has paid a financial price for his poor behavior (no endorsement deals), but he is statistically relevant and exciting. I respect someone who doesn't quit and thought outside the box to try new things.
- Earl adding length to cues
- Earl trying weighted arm resistance
- Earl trying tinted eye wear
- Earl physically training constantly
- Earl teaching players (I have been thru his clinic).
