I have been a fan of Patrick O'Sullivan for years because of the sole reason that we share the same birthday.
I have often, what happened to O'Sullivan, where did he go? Well, unfortunately, this article explains it. His own essay on his life of abuse and how an unhealthy path to the NHL led to confusion. It's sad.
The article is blunt, and starts off with: "My father used to beat the shit out of me."
