NAZARETH, Pennsylvania – Standing outside a 7-eleven wearing a dirty Lexus GT3 hoodie and gym shorts, a once promising American racer pleaded with strangers for a quick round of Mario Kart battle mode. Just wanting a cup of coffee and a donut one local described the scene, “At one point, we all expected Sage to be another racing star from Nazareth but slowly his career started to slowly wan. I heard he started playing online racing, but approaching strangers to get his racing fix is just really sad. He said he would even let me take two of his balloons before he would even try. I gave him some Takis and went on my way.”

Other 7-eleven patrons also took pity on Karam, with a couple even offering to play Crash Bandicoot Racing with him to which Karam declined.
