ESPN: "Pet tigers and Bentleys: How NFL players mess up money from the start"

Recently ran across this ESPN article by contributor Matt Bowen.  Thought I would share it as it could also be relevant to WCM readers, especially residents/fellows transitioning to their first attending jobs.  Sure doctors probably don't have the kind of money to buy houses for our "friends and uncles", but I'm certain many of us will feel or have felt similar temptations when seeing that attending paycheck for the first time.  What about you?  Trainees, do you have something you are itching to buy with that first paycheck?  Attendings, what did you buy with that first check?
