    Man Who Plays Game For Millions Of Dollars Called Gutsy

    BOSTON—Several sources confirmed Friday that a man who is paid millions of dollars to play a game was reportedly called gutsy and lauded for a “valiant effort” to hit a small white ball with a wooden stick. “With such a plucky performance, he’s showing some real courage at the plate,” said the game’s commentator, noting the spirited determination and daring of the man who sits for hours at a time during the competition. “It’s nice in this day and age to see a player who is so lionhearted. He’s just completely fearless when he’s behind in the count.” At press time, the person who makes a living by talking about the game was describing a ball being caught in a leather mitten as absolutely beautiful.

    Could not the same statement be made of someone that plays golf, tennis, soccer, etc, etc., etc.?

    Better yet, how much does George Clooney get per movie ?, what's Stephen King make for a book ?, what's U2 get for and album, or per concert for a 6 month tour ?

    How much did Charlie Sheen make per episode of 2 1/2 Men ? Or the cast of the Sapranos ?

    Jay Z does pretty good.

    If Charlie Sheen could make a few million a week for less than 3 days work a week, for 7 months, then I say athletes are underpaid.

    Judge Judy made almost 100 million in 2010.

    Nice posts. I am always amazed about how people only seem to be offended or angry that athletes make so much but could care less about other entertainers who make as much and often more money for pretending to be somebody.

    The same could also be said of Wall Street, which gambles with government-insured money.
