I’m not one to rant on and on about the missteps of today’s professional athletes* but a random number thrown out in a story about Tennessee Titans cornerback Adam “Pacman” Jones caught my eye last night. The story is about all the legal trouble he’s been in since joining the NFL as a rookie, including the latest “adventure”: being questioned be police about a shooting at a Las Vegas strip club during the NBA’s All-Star weekend.
According to the story, police seized $81,000 “in dollar bills they believed Jones has brought to the club”.
EIGHTY-ONE THOUSAND DOLLARS, PEOPLE!
Let’s do the math. If he had dropped a dollar every second on the “entertainment” it would still have taken over 22 hours to spend that much cash. In fact, in order to spend that much in a reasonable amount of time he’d have to spend anywhere from $3 per second on up to blow through that much cash**.
One wonders if this was perhaps some sort of bet he had placed with a buddy. Sort of like “Brewster’s Millions” but with strippers and cocaine…which, yes, would be a completely different movie.
* After all, that is what AM talk radio is for.
** $3 per second could be spent in about eight hours, to do it in three hours would require spending about $7.50 every second.
