When a ridiculously rich and famous athlete wakes up at 3 a.m. with the sudden urge to call his dealer, it’s normally not the kind that sells cars.
The online media has exploded with stories about tomorrow’s bout between Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao, with one of the biggest stories being, oddly enough, the cars of Mr. Mayweather.
When you or I wake up in the middle of the night from a dream in which we owned, say, a Bugatti Veyron, we shake our heads at the unlikelihood of it and go back to sleep. When Floyd Mayweather wakes up and wants a Bugatti, he calls his dealer and has a new Veyron in the garage by breakfast. That in itself is incredible, but it’s not the real story here.
