From this morning’s Strib, on athletes’ reactions to Obama’s victory:
Minnesota Vikings defensive end Jared Allen also thought about the tax implications.
“It’s a sad day for me. I’m a McCain supporter. There is nothing I can do about it now. Our paychecks will be cut in half,” he said. “It is what it is and McCain, I still love you, and Obama, you better do what you promised because the whole country is watching.”
For the record, under Obama’s tax plan, the rate on Jared’s six-year, $75 million contract will rise from 35 percent to 39 percent. Teachable moment.
