Its part of their ego that if they are great at whatever sport they play that they will be great at whatever else in life they attempt to do. Michael Jordan is a classic example of this, greatest basketball player ever but played baseball like I might at the minor league level. Brings a little humility to guys who can throw 100 mph but couldnt log in to their email account.

I admire Derek Jeter for being one of the greatest baseball players of all time but if he aint on the playing field, then I'm not impressed by him. I'm sure most of you remember his SNL appearance.

Besides arrogance, I'd say boredom and/or having too many "friends" whispering crap in their ears.

Thought that was going to lead to Michael Jordan's steakhouse/and or his gambling :)

MJ's gambling habits are legendary. The guy has plenty of money to throw around so he can afford to do so but eventually you have to think it might catch up to him.
