12/10/2005: Thought for the Day:
According to the New York Daily News, the Yankees lost between $50 and $85 million in 2005. Now I donít feel so bad. Personally, I lost between $25 and $30 million this past year and was a little down about it heading into the holidays. (A lot of my losses came from not purchasing lottery tickets with certain number combinations on them.) You know, if the Yankees canít make money, what hope is there for the rest of us? Why should we even bother working? Of course, if we spent money the way they do, weíd be paying $15 for a gallon of milk, the everymanís equivalent of the Tony Womack deal.
