Birdman is not shy when it comes to his money. In fact he claims to wear at least $1 million worth of clothing and jewelry at all times. Including a $100,000 "grill" for his teeth. So it shouldn't be a big shocker that Baby likes to make big bets on sports. But even Birdman's biggest fans were amazed this week when he announced his intentions to place a $5 million bet on Tom Brady's Patriots to win The Superbowl Next week:
It should be noted that Birdman is not a freshmen gambler. He wagered, and lost, $2 million on the Miami Heat in the NBA finals in 2011. He wagered, and won, $1 million on last years Super Bowl champion Green Bay Packers. And finally he plans to bet $10 million on Floyd Mayweather if he ever gets the chance to fight Manny Pacquaio.
In case you haven't done the math yet, a $5 million bet out of a $100 million fortune is equal to 5% of Birdman's total net worth. Take a moment, add up the value of all the money and assets you own and then calculate what a 5% bet would be to you. For example, if you had $20,000 cash in a checking account would you be willing to bet $1000 on The Super Bowl? I don't care how good Tom Brady is, that's a lot of cheese for anyone. So what do you think of Birdman's insane bet? Would you be willing to wager 5% of your net worth on Tom Brady?
