Lovin' $$$ Mayweather

If you missed the Mayweather/ Ortiz fight last night... you can check out the review clips below.

I liked the Kansas Jayhawks/US and Mexican flag shorts Ortiz was rocking during the fight. The KO by Mayweather looked a little sketchy, as Ortiz was clearly trying to talk to him or apologize before starting to fight, but hey, those are the breaks. I applaud $ Mayweather for being ferocious and getting pissed and wanting to fight back quickly. I am definitely calling another fight between these two and I know Ortiz will be pissed. Mayweather was hyped up before and after and even was talking trash to the announcer after, Muhammed Ali-esque.

Vick Gets New Contract, Creditors Very Happy

http://www.cnbc.com/id/44327928

"How does Vick make out? Well, he's allowed to keep the money left over after his creditors are paid off on the schedule made by the court. So next year, he starts with $17 million, takes $300,000 for himself, gives $5.85 million to his creditors, pays taxes and makes after taxes and makes required monthly payments to his ex-girlfriend and his mother, among others. That leaves him with about $3.7 million.

Of that, he has to pay the lawyers and accountants, 50 percent ($1,850,000). Vick can then bank the other $1,850,000, but can't touch it. That means that on a $17 million salary, Vick will net about $1.88 million next year. That means he makes 11 percent of what the Eagles pay him."
