Opinion: Smart money, expanding opportunity in Vegas, couple of obit observations

Earlier this week was the 53rd anniversary of Neil Armstrong walking on the moon. It was a pretty big deal, I'm told.

Well, Armstrong was the highest-paid of the Apollo 11 crew and made a smidge more than $30,000 in 1969.

For an absurd comparison, University of Georgia football coach Kirby Smart just agreed to an extension worth $112.5 million over the next 10 years.

Smart will make $10 million in 2022, and if Georgia plays 15 games, and each game averages around 150 plays per, that means Smart will make $4,444.44 per snap.

So it would take roughly seven snaps of the football this season for Smart to match Armstrong's 1969 salary.

Speaking of big-time jobs

OK, expand your mind - and your waistband.
