TOP MONEY ATHLETES
by Kaya Morgan
Alex Rodriguez Show Him The Money
Aside from taking home the largest salary in the history of baseball, Alex Rodriguez is considered one of the nicest, most admired players in the sport today. Whether on or off the field, his basic work ethic combined with a quiet humility and exceptional athletic talents has won him the respect of peers and fans alike.
He has a rare ability that combines power hitting with the grace of an acrobatic shortstop on the baseball diamond. And he has been known to confidently turn around the outcome of a game with both a bat and a glove.
Named as one of the "50 Most Beautiful People," A-Rod is a stylish, impeccable dresser with smiling green eyes that women the world over just can't seem to get enough of.
Tiger Woods Breaking All World Records
Golf, as we know it, is over. At age 27, Tiger Woods has broken all previous records and is now the material history is made of. Still with his whole career ahead of him, he has completely dominated the sport in a way not seen since Wayne Gretzky in the 1980s.
He has also turned golf into a trendy activity, increasing its popularity, audience and bringing a whole new group of fans to the game. No question, this young athlete has turned the world of golf on its head, leading to an increase in TV ratings along with the highest tournament purses ever paid.
Woods has achieved what many golfers won't ever achieve in their lifetime. Yet, off the course and away from his clubs, this charming, handsome, rich and famous guy is still just a down-to-earth preppie.
Andre Agassi At The Pinnacle of Success
Ever since turning pro, Andre Agassi has been at the forefront of the tennis world. There's not much this athlete hasn't accomplished, including setting the world record by winning all four major Grand Slams, garnering him a permanent place in the tennis Hall of Fame.
As a spokesperson for Nike, and the best player this country has to offer, he has made it cool to use the two-handed backhand rather than the traditional one-handed style. And his return serve is considered one of the best of all-time.
Without a doubt, Agassi has become a part of our modern pop culture because of his athletic ability and natural charisma. He never ceases to fascinate us with memorable moments, both on and off the court, over the course of his career.
