This week has been extremely busy. Between work, soccer and Finance Fox, I am definitely glad the weekend is here. That being said, it wont slow down anytime soon, but should be a fun weekend never the less. I decided to take my cousins to the beach for the day and will be going to the zoo on Sunday. I’m excited about the zoo. It’s been more than 15 years since I last been at the zoo. Keep you posted on my zoo adventure. In other news, I’m also proud, yet excited to say that one of my articles was featured in Globe & Mail (Rob Carrick’s Reader); It’s OK if you don’t invite me to your wedding.

I often wonder why athletes in major sports (NFL,NBA,NHL & MLB) get paid ridiculous amounts of money. 5 year contract worth $25 million? Insane! I don’t doubt for a second that they don’t train hard and work hard to win, but that’s absurd I thing. What happened to the days in the 50s or 60s when NHL players were getting team jackets for exemplary performances? Either way, enough me bitching, but Kevin from Thousandaire write a good post comparing Teacher Pay vs. Athlete Pay.
