....would you buy the Mets and give out the highest-paid contract in sports?

Actually, it's more like would you buy the Long Island Ducks and buy a star player from the Yankees and give that player the highest sports contract in the world?

It seems an oil billionaire, Suleiman Kerimov, who owns an obscure mid-level Russian soccer team, one that draws fewer than 12,000 fans a game, has dealt for Samuel Eto'o, who previously played for Inter Milan in Italy.

The transfer fee was $39 million and Eto'o is going to make $29 million a year according to the Wall Street Journal. Kerimov, whose net worth is reported at $7.8 billion, has acquired a series of stars for the previously unheard of team, Anzhi, and he has plans to build a 45,000 stadium as part of a nearly $2 billion development project.

Eto'o was awesome in Fifa '06.

Including an 8.0 rated Amazing Fantasy #8 (or whatever the Spiderman #1 is).

Apparently worth $160,000.

Heck, if I had that much money, I'd invent a new sport altogether.
