Theatre of the Absurd

Why is this man smiling?

Ripley’s believe it or not is relevant again – if you can believe it.  This past month, Cliff Lee signed a $24 million dollar contract to pitch for the Philadelphia Phillies .  If my math is correct, and I believe it is, that works out to $2 million a month or $66,000  dollars a day. Oh, and he signed a 5-year contract so I guess he doesn’t have to worry about money for the next five years.

I hope that helps put your life into perspective.  I make considerably less each day writing this blog – but admittedly I am not the best left-handed blogger on the free-agent market this year and I have not won a Cy Young award – yet.

Hey Cliff Lee, next time you go to the wine store don’t worry about looking for the best deals on Cava or American Sparkling wine.  Sure there are some really good ones to be found but I think you should splurge on the real stuff – Champagne.  Somebody thinks you’re worth it. Oh a don’t forget to pick up some Russian caviar on the way home. I find the saltiness of  light Beluga caviar really cuts nicely through the fine bubbles and acidity of Perrier-Jouet.  Just trying to help.
