How a tragic accident taught Jason Day the price of a dream
The last chapter of Jason Day's athletic career unexpectedly slammed shut on August 4, 2011. An ex-UFC middleweight who once battered Alan Belcher in his Octagon debut, the previous year had not been kind to Day. Just two months prior, he lost his third fight in as many tries, succumbing to a two-minute mugging at the hands of Francis Carmont at some small show in Ontario, Canada. His head wasn't in that one, he'd admit years later, but at least on this bright Vancouver afternoon, he was back home, the air was crisp, and the road was all that mattered. ----------------------------- Found this interesting since I live in BC and completely understand the level of BS that ICBC is all about. Feel pretty bad for Jason Day, but at least he has a bit of a silver lining here.
