How does this happen, I thought to myself.

It is what most fathers want their kids to be. It is without a doubt, the easiest "legal" way to make money. Some sports are easier to break into than others are, but whichever one you choose, you can expect to make extremely good money(especially if it's in basketball, baseball, football, hockey, or tennis). Some though, are so easy, that you almost literally only have to only crawl out of bed and show up to the game that night, and proceed to make in excess of $100,000 per game. Although the easiest jobs are reserved for the select few guys that are in excess of 6'5" tall, there are some jobs that even shorter guys can break into, that also pay extremely well. Of all the sports though, basketball is by far the easiest --- especially if you're 7'0" tall.
