Happy off-season, everyone. I cannot wait for the ball to get rolling again.
I was reading up on Grantland.com over the weekend and came across this story. It's by Rembert Browne and it's titled: "The Wonderful and Weird World of Thuzio" (http://www.grantland.com/story/_/id/...athletes-price)
Long story short, it's a website (that Tiki Barber created) where the public can pay a fee for some type of service with an athlete. These range from $100 for a phone call to $1,200 or so for a player in a certain radius to attend your fantasy draft. All of the athletes listed have different pay scales for different services. Sounds a little like another industry for me.
Regardless, I started poking around on the site to see if any Redskins were on there and, lo and behold, the first player listed is Pierre Garcon. Here is his profile: http://www.thuzio.com/pierre-garcon.html
For 5 large, you can take Peter Waiter out for a meal. There are some other options available as well.
Here's the rest of the list that comes up under a "Redskins" search: http://www.thuzio.com/catalogsearch/...y=0&category=3
I'm not exactly sure how to feel about this website, but hey, if they want to pick up some side coin and people are willing to pay, so be it. I just thought it was something interesting to check out or discuss during the slow part of the off-season.
