Larry Fitzgerald has pretty much gone wherever he wants on the football field. Defensive backs have not yet figured out how to stop Arizona's star wideout.
Apparently, Fitzgerald now has his sights set on exploring a different space -- outer space.
Fitzgerald told the Cardinals' official website that one day he'd like to leave Earth. But first he has to make sure he's got the funds.
"I try to make decisions .. within my means,” Fitzgerald told azcardinals.com. “I want to go into orbit. But it costs a million dollars right now and that's out of my budget. In a couple of years, when that (price) comes on down a little bit, I will do that and try it out, but right now, it's on my bucket list. It's just not feasible right now."
This might seem silly, but give Fitzgerald credit for sound financial planning. He's making $5 million this year but is still budgeting. In this economy, that's the sign of a man with the right priorities.
There is, however, a cheaper option if Fitzgerald is truly intent on going to outer space. Sir Richard Branson recently made headlines when he announced that Ashton Kutcher had signed on to become the 500th "astronaut" on his Virgin Galactic spacecraft for a measly $200,000. Other celebrities who have been rumored to be on the list are Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt, Katy Perry, Jay-Z, Beyonce and Tom Hanks.
Wait, hasn't Tom Hanks already been to already been to space?
