He is doing great," Mendenhall's agent said. "He said he doesn't have anything that is worth his life." The robbers were reportedly wearing black hoodies and ski masks. No arrests have been made.

At least he wasn't hurt.

Well... thinking through this a bit...

1. He was in chicago... not Pittsburgh. Which means that he isn't getting the hometown treatment. . . they would rip him up one side and down the other if he was doing anything else but actually walking on the waterfront.

2. "Nothing is worth my life." This kid has some smarts.

3. walking.. Not in a hight seed chase... not screwing around in bars causing problems.

Chalk it up to lesson learned. You are a nationally known figure now with money. . . lots of it coming quickly. You can't be doing those things anymore.

It makes it understandable why people have a "posse" with them... safety in numbers.
