After dropping out of college, he went to work for his father in his sporting goods store, but that venture failed fairly rapidly, either because of Jerry’s lack of talent in running a small business or, as David would later contend, because his father was cheated by another entrepreneur. Whether he was right or wrong, David vowed revenge against the man he thought was responsible for his father’s store closing. It was still another example of his inability to forget a slight, either real or imagined.
His other and more practical reason was that his father had taken over as head football coach at the school, having made the transition in 1972, when David was a sophomore at Glendora High. David was motivated, therefore, by a desire to please both his parents: his mother, by choosing a Christian school; his father, by showing he trusted him enough to place his future directly in his hands. David’s not-so-secret ambition was to play professional football, preferably for a relatively new and struggling West Coast team, the Seattle Seahawks.
They lived by a macho code, one that had little tolerance for rejection, especially female rejection. The brush-off was a threat to his group status as well as a blow to his considerable ego. So David did what he thought was the macho thing: he tried to get even. While the girl and her parents were out one night, he burgled their home. Although he escaped undetected, his satisfaction was short-lived. Even though he had been successful, the act somehow failed to vindicate the indignity he had suffered; it didn’t erase the shame.
