This Just in: Pro Athletes Make $$$$

Philly sports' top earners

The Scoop has breaking news to report: Professional athletes make a lot of money. Sports Illustrated has four of Philly’s phenoms—Ryan Howard, Roy Halladay, Roy Oswalt and Elton Brand—in their list of 2011’s top-earning athletes. The Scoop’s last contract would have been close to those figures if it wasn’t for his nagging knee problems and rescinded endorsement deals due to his lavish lifestyle. [Fox 29]
