I need to work 140+ years to make Jamarcus Russell's annual salary. That makes me feel like a fail.

Re: Feeling good about yourself?

There are 82 games in the NBA regular season, 48 minutes in each game (not factoring in OT/playoffs). By those numbers, Pau Gasol makes $4,827.24 per minute of game time, regardless of being on the bench or on the court. That's just nuts.

You could do breakdowns like this all day. There 162 games in the baseball regular season, 9 innings in each game (not factoring in extra innings/playoffs), 3 outs per half inning (while Mauer is behind the plate). That means Mauer gets $5,258.34 for every defensive out the Twins get.

It goes on and on. Staggering how well these dudes are paid.

you don't even want to know what mine is.. somewhere about 4 to 5x what yours will take

bust my ass all day every day, not going to pretend that my job is even halfway glamorous though, it's also not that hard, but I do have to work for it.. just waiting to have the money to go back to school, never saw myself in this position at this age

If you want to feel just fantastic about yourself, think of this. Mo Vaughn made over $13 million in 2001...and combined every member of this board played as many MLB games as Vaughn did that year

Oh man i remember that. He was such a stud for a while then just fell off the map. Albert Belle robbed the Orioles in that fashion as well. They paid him millions for a few years after he was out of the game.
