(Dorthy Hamill, sweetheart of the world, millions)
Humans must take care if we ever have ‘easy money’ or we blow it. When one has worked, saved, scrimped and planned, money means something.
(A. Walker $110 Mil)
Not every lottery winner throws the money away, but too many do. All of a sudden the wealth becomes an albatross. Sweet natured people fall for all the ‘scams’ and ‘con-men’. Mostly buying dreams and giving to others, makes one throw caution to the winds.
( Diago Soccer 53 million taxes owed, broke )
Some buy cars and homes and later cannot pay the taxes. In my mind I think a man or woman who watched their parents sacrifice and cut corners to send them to school would appreciate that, and protect their earnings, plan and set aside for when the source of the windfall is gone.
(Kenny $60 mil)
I know I am not alone at being a little sick on my stomach of the pro athletes are paid millions to play a game they enjoy, then see them broke once they are injured or too old to ‘PLAY’. Few are exceptions. I just read in the news that more & more profesional athletes are broke and in debt at the end of their careers, some after running thru with hundreds of millions of dollars. The average fan can only say, HUH?
(Iron Mike $400 mil)
Does it go back to High Schools and Colleges and top name Universities that ‘fake’ an education for their natural born athletes instead of ‘teaching/educating’ them?
(Jack $20 mil)
IT starts in HS, methinks, when the sport is more important than the mind. Educators know that the money for the school comes in from ‘sports’ followers and alumni. Knowing this they cannot emphasize education over sports, they lose money. That is sad.
(Ishmael $20 mil)
It is sad when the greatest country the world has ever known, comes down to ‘being another’ Roman Empire, even sacrificing lives for entertainment, except we pay them millions to ruin their bodies to the yells and cheers of FANS. In the end many find fault with some system, they play the blame game, not MY fault.
There are 100’s more examples……. This is my opinion, that really means nothing, since I am not a real sports fan.
I am told by some, if I had played sports or attended college I would appreciate sports more because I WOULD HAVE A TEAM to support…………. i say to myself, ….. (maybe so)
Of course stars must have cars
