    Funny Jose Canseco quote.

    Jose Canseco looses his 2.5 million dollar home, doesn't sound like much more than you would pay for a 3 bedroom in Ankeny. This Yahoo quote sounded funny to me, he can't seem to get by on 35 million.

    "You know my life, this financial thing, is a very complicated issue. Obviously, when you make all that money, people think, `OK, let's assume it is $35 million.' People have to understand that $35 million, you're paying the government 41 percent. That leaves you with about $17 or $18 million, not even. Then you're taking care of your whole family."
    He added that a couple of divorces cost him $7 million or $8 million.

    Somehow I am not suprised.

    Speaking of sports celeb divorces, did I read correctly Michael Jordan's divorce cost him $150 MM ?? Wow, and I thought Paul McCartney had to fork it over.
