It is truly amazing how quickly sports have grown into billion dollar franchises with top end players making up to $30 million a year. Baffling. On top of it, the numbers for broadcasting rights keep climbing right along with them and frankly seem to be... 2 years 1 month
Counterfeit Condoms From China... Who Would Have...Look, I can understand counterfeiting Gucchi or Prada stuff and even electronics like Iphones. But Condoms... Really??

Relationship Question: Not the usual oneFrom my perspective, I think one of the first things I picked up on was her wanting kids and you not being entirely sold on them. Obviously, anyone can change over time but if you aren't 100% on having kids in the next few years and she is I think that could become a big sticking point. Especially... 2 weeks 5 days
