Getting paid big contracts after making a much smaller amount has to be somewhat of an eye-opening experience to athletes — and just regular, everyday people. Apparently, Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Carlos Gomez is trying to assimilate to rich culture by Googling “rich people conversations.”
Gomez, one of the better young players in baseball today, signed a four-year, $28.3 million contract extension before last season and he’s been using that cash as a reason to Google such ridiculous things.
According to teammate Ryan Braun, the 28-year-old outfielder informed him while holding a plate of kiwi that the fruit had three times as much potassium as bananas. Braun went on to say:
“I asked him how he heard it. He told me, now that he’s wealthy, he’s been Googling rich people conversations so he nows what to talk to wealthy people about, and he came across that data.”
Okay, so that might be the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever heard.
Now that he’s rich, he has to know what kind of things to talk to rich people about? Moreover, why are kiwi statistics in that category? Even more moreover, did he buy kiwis just so he could present that fact?
It’s a good thing Gomez can hit the cover off the ball because if he presented useless facts all the time, rich people may get annoyed with him.
If Gomez keeps improving his stats every year, he’s going to get an even bigger contract in a few years.
Then he will really have no idea what to talk about with other “rich” people.
