A Sports Question, Sort Of

From Hey Rube: Blood Sport, The Bush Doctrine, And The Downward Spiral Of Dumbness - Modern History From The Sports Desk, by Hunter S. Thompson (page 79):

"It was Beer that finally ended my career as a full-time Athlete - first Beer, then Girls, and finally a brief fling with Crime. That is a fatal mix for any star athlete."

When did this - the second sentence - stop being true? Was it ever true?

Never stopped being true. However, certain words can be removed and inserted. Instead of beer, you can now insert meth, coke, or heroin. Instead of girls, you can insert young boys, married women, or groupies. Crime is crime, a nice word with hundreds of meanings and lots of room for exploration.
