Dieting for Dollars

Now here's a way to lose some weight. Curt Schilling just signed a new one-year contract with the Red Sox that includes a $2 million weight clause, along with $8 million in base salary. If Schilling stays in shape and meets weight goals at six different weigh-ins during the year, he'll get the extra money. Screw Weight Watchers. This is the proper way to lose weight. Give me $2 million, and I'll be happy to go on the treadmill. I might even lay off the ice cream too.
