Kreskin Commentary on Craig Carton Sentencing

Posted by admin On April - 10 - 2019

The sentencing of Craig Carton to 42 months in Federal Prison triggered off my memories of first appearing with him and Boomer Esiason on WFAN Sports Radio in 2012.  How vividly I recall his strongly urging, in fact demanding that I offer my services to pull the Mets out of their slump.  The man has great spirit and an energy that made it clear why he had such extensive popularity in Sports Broadcasting.  Through the years, working and performing at times in the casino setting, and often reading the thoughts of successful gamblers, I’ve been aware of the devastating impact a gambling addict has, not only on his own life, but all those lives he touches.  Is there an automatic or rapid cure for such an addiction?  The answer is no.  Bear in mind that Carton was able to keep secret his addiction from not only the public, but people with whom he worked, and even his family.  Let’s hope he gets the support he needs, and those of you reading this who may have irresistible urges to gamble, don’t wait, and seek support immediately.
