This probably should go in the rated R for vulgarity category, but it is awesome:

Realized I’d heard nothing from Johnny Damon for a while and looked at his Wikipedia page.

This is perfect
Damon was one of the victims of the $8 billion fraud perpetrated by convicted wealth manager Allen Stanford.[55]

Damon spoke at a rally in Florida during Donald Trump's 2016 presidential campaign and also chanted in support of a border wall between the United States and Mexico.[56]

In partial fairness to Damon, my memory is that his agent, or some other individual who should have been qualified to give financial advice, directed him to Stanford's services. After what happened in the Great Financial Crisis, I'm convinced that most "connected" rich people put their money into investments with mediocre Sharpe ratios, and then usually outperform a generic Vanguard index fund by blindly taking on enormous risks like those in Stanford's "high yield CDs."

Naturally, this immediately happened in the real world.
