Ruben Rivera signed a guaranteed million dollar contract this offseason to play baseball for the frigging Yankees. Then he gets caught stealing one of Derek Jeter's gloves and selling it to a memorabilia dealer for 2 grand. What an IDIOT!

It could have been a smart business idea if he hadn't been caught. It's all a matter of perspective.

Obviously I think most would agree that stealing is wrong, but let us throw that out the window for a moment and look at risk/reward.

Let us all transport ourselves to an alternative universe where I, grbh, am an outfielder for the New York Yankees. I make $700,000 a year. One day I walk into the Yankee's locker room a stumble upon Jeter's glove. My choices (assuming I have no ethics) are:

1. Steal the glove to try to raise my annual income to $701,000, but risk loosing at least 500,000 if I am caught and kicked of the team due to release and contractual buyout.

2. Keep walking cause for goodness sake I make $700,000 a year and I play for the Yankees.

I don't get it.

Funny to think it's only March and that award has been taken, but you are going to have to go a long way to beat this. Man alive what was he thinking?

I don't know, but you have a good point it is only March. After all have you ever reads the darwin awards.

I think we have our dumbass!!

Wayne Carey, captain of North Melbourne Kangaroos, premiers in 1996/99. Absolute superstar of the AFL, one of the best ever. All Australian on so many times, I can't recall.

Gets caught in the toilet at a clubs party over the weekend, with the vice-captain's wife, Carey is also married. Quit the club yesterday and will not play football this year, even though he is arguably the best AFL player going around.

<< Is she hot? i/expressions/face-icon-small-wink.gif >>

I think so. But I am just trying to verify that. I know Carey's wife (or former wife) is very nice.
