Yesterday during the Rocket Report we talked about NHL hockey player Jack Johnson and his financial woes.  Johnson whom, by the end of the 2014-15 season will have made $23 million in his NHL career is bankrupt.  Johnson, filing for bankruptcy and parting with his financial caretakers who swindled away the money on their own lavish lifestyle.  His financial caretakers that did this, HIS PARENTS!

Today Eddie Michels alerted to me to a similar situation according to the Philadelphia Daily News, with Ryan Howard of the Philadelphia Phillies.  In the past three years Ryan Howard has been battling with his brother Cory and parents Ron and Cheryl, over money.  Ryan’s money.  Ryan Howard since his career began in 2004 has earned a whopping $130,255,000 from the Philadelphia Phillies.  According to the Daily News,  in a 2007 HBO interview with Bryant Gumbel Cheryl Howard said she controlled the money and gave Ryan an allowance.

If you follow Rocket Sports & Entertainment Network you may have seen a regular piece by Eddie Michels following the the progress of Ryan Howard’s Bellaire Beach mansion on the Gulf in Mexico in Clearwater, Florida.

The house “project,” and I used the term “project” endearingly since it started in late 2012,  is almost complete.  My biggest question is… will the house be in momma Cheryl’s name?

I think it is Ryan that should be giving an allowance to Cheryl!
