Like Brewster’s Millions, Without the End Payoff

This was one of my favorite movies as a kid.  The general premise was that Brewster had to spend 30 million in 30 days and have nothing to show for it in order to recieve the true prize of 300 million.

I mention this because Rick Reilly, writer for ESPN has a great new article on the amazing ways that rich athlete blow through money, ways that most of us could probably not even conjure up.  Read the article it will make you realize that the old saying was right on when it said, “A fool and his money will soon part ways.”

  1. Thanks for posting this article. As a faithful reader of Sports Illustrated I miss saving Reilly’s article for the end. Sure, SI tried to replace Rick with Dan Patrick, and his page can be humorous, but nobody writes about sports the way the Reilly does.

  2. A fool and his money will soon buy lots of Christian books.
