$325 Million Man, What Will Giancarlo Stanton Do With All That Money?
Giancarlo Stanton and the Miami Marlins have agreed on the most lucrative contract for an American athlete - $325 million for 13 years. What is Giancarlo going to do with all of that money?
First of all, let me say, $325 million is a lot of dough. Do you realize, if you made $50,000 a year, you would have to work for 6500 years to make that kind of money. Stanton will earn nearly $481,000 every week. You would have to work for 9 1/2 years to earn what he will make in a single week. Breaking it down even farther - the Marlin's superstar will make nearly $69,000 per day - 365 days a year for the next 13 years. It's mind boggling!
So, what could Giancarlo Stanton do with $325 million coming in over the next 13 years?
*Buy a brand new Lamborghini every week - and still have money left over for gas, insurance, and speeding tickets
* Buy a brand new Ford F-150 pickup every single day for 13 years - and yes, plenty of cash left over for gas, oil, insurance, and repairs. Oh, wait a minute. By driving a different brand new car every day there would be no repairs.
* He could buy more than 40 million foot long hot dogs.....which would be about 8 per day - two for breakfast, and three for lunch and dinner - every day.That's enough foot longs to stretch them end to end from Grand Junction to Washington, DC -- and back!
* He could buy a twelve $25 million dollar mansions in different parts of the county- or the world for that matter -and live in a different house each month of the year - and could pay a housekeeper $1million a year to vacuum, cook, and wash the windows.
