Someone Explain This to Me

How is it possible that David Beckham about to paid $1 million a week to play for a team I never knew existed?

It's moments like this that I think, "What the fuck is wrong with the world?"

Updated to add: The more I think about this the more angry and upset I become. Wes calculated last night that if we assume Mr. Beckham works 10 hours a day, 5 days a week, 50 weeks a year he will earn $27 a second. To me, this is simply immoral. I would be willing to pay someone that kind of money if they could create permanent peace in the Middle East or cure AIDS. But a soccer player? Downright immoral.
