ESPN's McGee Asks “What If?” for Al Unser Jr.

Every once and a while, I'll find an article that shines a completely different line of a topical subject and really makes you think a lot.

This week's example? A blog post by ESPN's Ryan McGee titled "The Fall of Al Unser Jr."

Unser Jr. -- in case you missed it -- made more headlines the way he hates to last week when an indictment involving a prostitution ring listed him as an extortion victim thanks a tape that supposedly showed the two-time Indianapolis 500 champion in a compromising situation.

The owner of the tape allegedly wanted $750,000 to keep the video from going public and Unser Jr., was close to paying it to avoid breaking a "morals clause" in a racing contract.

McGee's post, however, focused on nothing of like and instead talked about how far Unser Jr. has fallen from his incredible win over Scott Goodyear in 1992 Indianapolis 500 and his second in 1994.

In the post, McGee talks about how Unser Jr. could have had a legitmate NASCAR career and how the driver found himself living out of a motorhome at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway a just a few years ago.
