CaptureBRISTOL, CT – Abba had it right, “money, must be funny in a rich man’s world”

Well, rich men is what’s on ESPN’s top 25 highest paid athletes list.

Athletes from every sport from football to formula one made it on this lucrative list.

These high profile guys and yes, they’re all guys, are banking in the millions! Must be nice!

Dallas’ very own Tony Romo makes the list at number 14, earning 26.5 million. Looks like you don’t have to win every game to be a winner.

Texas Ranger royalty, Prince Fielder, makes a noble $24 million running bases at Globe Life Park.

Soccer heartthrobs Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi take the 2nd and 3rd spots making over 50 million each. We’re sure making millions of female fans scream doesn’t hurt either.

So who’s number one? None other than boxing’s Floyd “Money” Mayweather. Hey, he has money in his name for crying out loud!

And by the way, this doesn’t even include endorsement deals.
