The Job I Want

This almost slipped by unnoticed but it came out yesterday what baseball Commissioner Bud Selig made last year.

Some where in the neighborhood of $18 million.

$18 million?!?!?!?!?!?

Seriously, that’s a lot of money.  Apparently, it’s more than what all but a few (all Yankees) players made last year.
All major sports commissioners are overpaid in my opinion but this one makes me scratch my head.  I realize that MLB is a private corporation and can pay him whatever they want.  And that corporation has made record money each of the last few years running, but that number is still just a staggering figure.

Any baseball fan wants to be “commissioner for a day” but I really want to be that now.  You’d make somewhere in the neighborhood of $49,000 for that one day.  Now that’s a nice rate.
