This is not a political post. Well, not totally. The mega wealthy (of which I am not even close to a part) has exactly 2 months to figure out what they are going to do if they expect a big payday in the next few years. ESPN.com posted an interesting article about MLB baseball players who expect to sign contracts in the off season. They better get to work or that 4.6% increase will cost their clients a lot of money.

 

On a related note, Wayne Huizenga, owner of the Miami Dolphins, indicated last week that he wanted to speed up the sale of the franchise so that he does not have to pay higher capital gains taxes.

 

Good thing the NASCAR boys get their season ending bonus check in NYC in late November. JJ or Carl might not have been quite as happy winning the championship if more of the Sprint Cup Champions multi-million dollar bonus pay day was wiped away in taxes.

 

One the other hand, I am SO GLAD President-elect Obama pushed for a playoff system in College Football. I want to see that happen so bad. Come on Mr. President, make that happen and this “southern-redneck” will be very happy!
