Signing of the Day

What is recession proof and black and white all over? If you guessed the New York Yankees you are correct! The Yankees will soon sign first baseman Mark Teixeira to an 8 year, 180 million dollar contract. The team has signed 423.5 million dollars worth of contracts in the past month. They now have the four highest paid athletes in baseball (Alex Rodriguez, Mark Teixeira, Derek Jeter, and CC Sabathia). Merry Christmas, Yankee fans. I can't wait till April to open this present.

I have no words for this. How do you pay $423.5 million for like 3 human beings?? RIDONK to the EXTREME.

Either way, the Yankees are now screwed. If they do well next year people will say they bought their way to the championship. If they do not make it to post-season, then what a waste to the tune of of $423.5 million. So, yeah.
