Happy Labor Day, America. El Dia De Los Trabajadores. I give thanks to all the workers out there just trying to make it day by day.
This is a day of pride for Latinos. So many of us are hard workers; the work we do is crucial to the economy, and for that we can puff out our chests a little more on this day.
Sports is work, too. It takes dedication and skill and courage to play the games we love to watch. The salaries go up and up, the owners get richer and richer, yet we are addicted. We love our favorite athletes and our favorite teams. We are like kids again when we see grown men acting like kids on the field or on the court.
Overall, professional athletes are overpaid. Just look at some of the big fat contracts out there. Alex Rodriguez. Kobe Bryant. Calvin Johnson. Cristiano Ronaldo. Lionel Messi. A lot of baseball players.
