(ABC)–Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins is making a reported $20 million this season.
But don’t expect Cousins, who coined the viral “You like that!” phrase, to go on a spending spree anytime soon. Frankly, “You save that!” is probably more like it.
Cousins spoke to student-athletes at Bowie High School Friday morning, preaching the virtues of frugality. Cousins was helping with a ‘financial literacy’ event sponsored by VISA.
Cousins told the students about how he drives his ‘grandma’s van’ and that he and his wife live in a townhouse, even though $20 million a year ought to be able to get them into something a little bigger (even in Northern Virginia!).
At any rate, listen to Kirk Cousins – and we’ll all think twice about buying that next flat-screen, watch, pair of ‘Jordans’, or dare I say, a sports car.
