Olympic Living

Most of the athletes competing in the Olympics compete for nothing more than the love of their sport.  Let’s face it, being the 10th best ping-pong player in the world probably isn’t going to make you a whole lot of money.  I think that’s one of the reasons that this Forbes slideshow is interesting.  Granted, it shows mainly the haves of the international sporting circuit but it also shows the disparity between mainstream and non-mainstream sports.

If you really want to see what sports can get you, though, it’s too bad they didn’t include baseball in the Olympics this year.  If so, they could have featured Derek Jeter’s Tampa monstrosity:

LeBron may be king but Jeter has the palace.
