"Hi Jon:

Few others can understand the enticement of the lust of life when the world says “yes” to your every desire. At these times, anything you want is at your fingertips: free meals, expensive gifts, amazing opportunities, big sponsorships, money, girls, and just about every desire being met on demand.

One day, everything changes. Speaking from experience, the decisions we make eventually catches up to us. These consequences, from the seeds that we have sown, are very real and seldom easy to deal with. Fame is often a road paved with heartbreak. It’s a black hole that has the ability to engulf a distracted soul.

Unfortunately, you must sleep in the bed that you made. You did this to yourself, and you have issues that need to be dealt with. It’s important that you understand that all your troubles today are a bi-product of your actions. Once you truly understand this, then you can begin to heal what has been broken and move forward once again........"

I want someone to film Shamrock reading this letter.
Shamrock should be in a night robe, a tobacco pipe should be in his mouth, and there needs to be a lit fireplace.
Soft classical music needs to be playing in the background.

Why is this an open letter? Is there a reason the rest of the world had to be in the loop for this one?

I bet it would look something like this.

I don't always go for a leglock in a fight, but when I do, I rupture my opponent's hamstring

I'll answer your question with a question:
Have you ever heard about his newest movie before?

It's a solid gesture from Shamrock.

This is very thoughtful. I like the term "bi-product". It's slightly homoerotic.

Spot on, this is a PR move. It's a good one. Should bump up sales.
