Free Money

It seems like I'm always seeing stories about athletes just giving their money away when trying to invest it. David Akers seems to be the latest athlete to do such a thing. Giving away $3.7 million. Good one.

I mean, just give me the money. I offer nothing in return, I'm going to spend it, and at least you'll know where your money is going. Chances are once you're broke 10 years after your career has ended, I may be willing to offer you some sort of loan to get you back on your feet. That's better than just dumping all your money into a shady investment that promises big riches, but really a guy just takes your money and runs.
