It's My Fault...Not Pujols'!
I heard a statistic reported on the radio the other day that 30% of Americans believe that Entertainers and Pro Athletes should not make more than $1,000,000 a year.
Kentucky’s new head coach is to be paid $4,000,000 a year for the next eight years which pales in comparison to Pujols who gets paid $16,000,000 a year to play baseball. Pujols gets left in the dark when compared to the $58,000,000 Wil Smith reportedly received from the movie Hancock.
It’s not Pujols’ or Smith’s fault that they make all that money. It’s my fault! I paid to watch that movie. I paid for five sets of tickets to this seasons’ Cardinals games. So it’s my fault that these athletes and actors are paid so much money.
I can guarantee you this: If we didn’t buy tickets to shows and games, the salaries would fall.
So the next time you hear someone complaining about the high-salary of athletes and actors…just tell them it’s my fault. That is…unless you share the blame.
Heck, for that matter, 30% of Americans probably don’t even go to ball games and movies.
