You would think so with the multimillion-dollar salaries. But there are athletes and celebrities who spend it as they get it, who want their money up front so they can spend it and who continue to spend it when they aren't making money anymore. A few years ago, I heard of a former major leaguer who was working at his local Wal-Mart despite having earned more than $1 million in his last four seasons.
It's just nice to see evidence that Paul Konerko is more grounded.
