This actually happened to Benoit Benjamin, the ex-NBA player. If you read Loose Balls by Jayson Williams, it'll tell the whole story. :D

Also, I think Yankee refers to Northener, rather than Yankees fan.

You are correct. ;-D

Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

Are you talking about the fact that there is no state income tax in Texas? The basic idea behind it is that there is supposedly a higher sales tax to make up for part of the revenues the state misses out on due to having no state income tax. However, it turns out that because the state is so large and we have the sheer numbers to make up for it, our sales tax isn't really that out of line with most other states, it's usually right around 8%. I go to school in Oklahoma, and they do have a state income tax, all while their sales tax is still over 8% in most places.

This is the reason that Texas attracts so many corporate headquarters, no state income tax....this also contributes to Texas' economy and the overall welfare of the state. But shhhhh, don't tell anybody our secret!

Damn, it's nice to be a Texan. B-)
