As some of you may know, we ran into some money issues when we mis-planned our budget for our website. Currently, the budget for the website looks like this:
$500 - Children's Health Fund Donations
$800 - Yearly Video Phone Payment (For Calling Brian Cashman)
$5,000 - Respect Jeter's Gangster Office Rent
$1,500,000 - Paid subsidy to the Yankees for A-Rod's contract.
So far this year, our yearly income looks like this:
$8.63 - Found in Couch.
So as you see, we've run a slight deficit. However, looking at the Yankees reminds us how bad it could really be. I mean, we could have committed to paying $114 million to A-Rod between 2013 - 2017. Or $14 million to Rafael Soriano for next year. Or $8.5 million for the next couple years towards a player who doesn't even play for us (Burnett).
Now that we feel better about ourselves, we now offer you these words from our advertisers: look at players rewards cards. Especially if you're into gambling online. If not, just remember how lucky you are to not have A-Rod as a line item in your budget. Unless you're Hal Steinbrenner. Then you should feel pretty awful.
