    A new concept to separate your money from your wallet. Pro athletes
    selling stock in themselves. Arian Foster IPO coming out in a few weeks:

    what about the 13th Amendment?

    Arian: I'm not ready to play.
    Stockholder: I own you, get your ass in there.
    Arian: Yessa Massa

    Buy early, sell quickly. I learned that with that fucker last year.

    When I worked on Wall St., some of the traders I knew were invested in boxers. Like race horses, they have a lot of expenses before they get to a big pay day.

    I think some even invested in golfers.

    The value of the brand would seem to rely a lot on the marketing
    budget of The NFL without having to pay for it.

    Hence, I wonder how The NFL feels about this.

    Joe Frazier's pro career was bankrolled by a group including some Philly business guys and, from what I heard, a journalist named Larry Merchant.

    I hear Sonny Liston had some backers too ...

    I could swear Frank Thomas sold Frank Thomas bonds in the early '90s, but when I search "Frank Thomas Bonds" on Teh Google, I get 100 pages of steroids.

    Cloverleaf was the group that backed the late great Smokin Joe. I'm not sure if Merchant was part of it and I suspect he wasn't because it would've been a conflict of interest. He was the SE of the Philadelphia Daily News at the time.

    If Arian Foster were issuing an IPA I'd be much more interested
