You got me beat on the "friends who are billionaires" front.

At best, I only have one. :)

How is this unique to America?

Have you ever seen what South American clubs (Santos, River Plate, etc.) do to get young talent off the streets... and then package them for huge fees to Barcelona... who then run the price up before selling them to Manchester United... who then dump them onto an unsuspecting MLS or J-League team looking to cash in on a name player?

And keep in mind - there is no college in the offing. And yet, Maradona was one of the most admired men in the world, even when he died.

This isn't an America thing. It's a human thing.

And just so we're clear, college ain't what it used to be when we matriculated. Even at Ivy schools.
