Highest Earning Athletes
Tuesday's P.M. Hot Clicks
There's a reason Floyd Mayweather is nicknamed "Money" and it's not because he's a huge Swingers fan. The undefeated fighter will earn a whopping $105 million this year, and that's a conservative estimate. SI teamed up with Fortune for the annual Fortunate 50 list that looks at the highest-earning American athletes. For the third year in a row, Mayweather tops the list. I've included the top 10 in the gallery above; the whole list can be viewed here.
Rappers and Wranglers
What's better than a three-hour flight from Milwaukee to Phoenix? A three-hour flight with the passengers dressed up like rappers or wranglers, especially when those passengers are professional baseball players. The Brewers became the latest team to dress up for a road trip, with the theme "wranglers or rappers." First prize (by a mile) goes to Lyle Overbay for his Vanilla Ice getup.
