As of Monday morning, Warren Buffett is worth $60.9 billion. That is a relief, considering he put his dignity on the line Sunday.
The investor, ranked third-wealthiest in the world in 2015, wore a Miami Dolphins jersey over shoulder pads for the team's showdown with the Buffalo Bills.

The No. 93 jersey is that of Ndamukong Suh, the four-time Pro Bowl defensive tackle that Miami signed in the offseason. The six-year, $114 million contract ($60 million guaranteed) made Suh, a Heisman finalist at Nebraska, the highest-paid defensive player in football, although he is still a far cry from Buffett.
Buffett, the "Oracle of Omaha," is an Omaha native, who graduated from Nebraska (after transferring from Penn's Wharton School of Business). The two were introduced by Tom Osborne, the Cornhuskers' legendary coach and athletic director, who also served three terms in the U.S. House of Representatives.
Buffett brought Suh to a Berkshire Hathaway shareholder meeting in 2013. The baddest man in football has a buddy-buddy relationship with the cuddliest billionaire on the planet. The duo does not let the age difference (85 and 28) get in the way.
When the NFL Network asked Buffett if he would consider the front office of an NFL team, he laughed, "I doubt that. I'm more interested in becoming an NFL player."
Maybe not for the Dolphins. Miami was clubbed 41-14 by the Bills Sunday to drop to 1-2.
Nonetheless, Buffett looked outstanding:

Perhaps Buffet got the idea to suit up from a tweet. After Suh signed with the Dolphins in March, Florida TV producer Armando Alvarez made a suggestion, but Buffet raised the ante with the shoulder pads.
