The University of Colorado will reportedly pay Sanders a base salary of $5 million per year.

  2. I love the show but the idiot from the Los Angeles show is not up to date with geography. He wants to know how Martinez can be French. Spain is right next door to France you dumb small minded idiot. Let oliver and Halle have their cute little mixed baby and let them call it whatever they want. I love Dallas and Atlanta and most the time L.A but when I hear something so dumb I gotta say something. Gary rocks.
