Prepare to see what the true definition of rich as sin is, because Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers has chosen to illustrate that for us.
The Rivermobile is an absurdly luxurious SUV that demands a price tag of $200,000, and that’s before we take into account the salary for the driver, which, hopefully, is substantial. The man has a family to feed, be generous.
You might be wondering why the QB decided he needs it. Rivers sought out the modified SUV as an alternative to moving, so, you know, normal reasons. The San Diego native decided that moving to Los Angeles was strictly out of the question.
“My two biggest things were my family time and my preparation and what I owe this football team. I was not going to sacrifice either of them in any big proportion. I can look at all the pluses and minuses and say, ‘OK. This does it.’ This allows me to get home in the 6 to 7 hour, which is when I got home the last 11 years, and it allows me to watch all or more of the film I watched before.”
So, fair enough, Philip Rivers, keep your wheeled luxury yacht.
