Re: David Beckham, Pro Sports & The "Teacher"?
First of all, learn to read! I said I was not a teacher! Second of all, if the rest of us are going to work for 50 years, we are going to be about 72 when we retire. I don't think that is likely. Second of all, I will make less than 2 million dollars in my entire working career if I work 25 years. If I work 50 years I could make a whopping 4 million. I did the math. Even a mediocre player could make this in a year or two. I don't feel bad for their limited working time frame. I don't care if they have 2 years in which to make their money, they get paid an obscene amount. Plus if they really need money after they "retire" they can get a real job like the rest of us. I'd like to see any of them (or you) spend a week teaching Kindergarteners or 8th graders (who think they know more than every adult on the planet) or children with behavior disorders or children with Autism. I certainly can't hit a baseball with any authority even off a single A pitcher and I have no idea how to play soccer but David Beckham or Barry Zito probably can't do my job either.
