Berfdays Was The Worst Days, Now We [Buy Ferraris] When We Thirstaaaay

Back in the day, Kobe Bryant was just the American kid on a team full of pudgy Italians, whining to no one in particular about getting them all traded. Things have changed, though. He takes a helicopter to games these days, and when he doesn't feel like flying, now he's got a Ferrari. A reminder of his roots, maybe. As TMZ Reports:

Kobe's new ride is a Ferrari 458 Italia. We're told the Black Mamba paid $329,000 yesterday for the car ... which he paid for in full with a check.

This isn't really news, but really. Imagine how good it'd feel to hand over a $329,000 check, have no questions asked, then drive away in a Ferrari. Just take a second and think about it.

[waits]

OKAY. There's your regularly-scheduled reminder that superstar athletes live in outer space, basically. In closing, let's hope he drives his Ferrari backwards with the doors wide open, because that's what the Big Tymers did, and everybody (especially Kobe) should be more like the Big Tymers.
