Kjerstad was finishing college degree

Recommended Posts

No way this was just about finishing his degree.  They wouldn’t have couched that as personal reasons.  From the quote it seems there was something else and the interviewee was saying at least he got to finish his degree.

This story makes little sense to me.  Do organizations have zero input over what their employees do just after giving them 5 million? How does getting a degree right now advance his baseball production for the Orioles?

What a waste of time! No matter what degree it is, he'll never make as much money with it as he will playing baseball!

I got curious what Kjerstad was majoring in at U. of Arkansas.   It’s Recreation and Sports Management.   https://catalog.uark.edu/undergraduatecatalog/collegesandschools/collegeofeducationandhealthprofessions/recreationandsportmanagementresm/

Perhaps he wants to analyze the different types of turf at opposing stadiums? Or is that more vegetation management?

It's pretty simple.

Absolute knowledge corrupts powerfully.

Knowledge + Power + Money = Total Absolute Corruption :)

Keep in mind you can substitute Time for Money in these equations.

There is really no such thing as absolute knowledge because even if someone knows everything to know, which is impossible, someone would come up with a new something that was unknown before.   If the previous comments were a knock on Kjerstad  because he is finishing his formal education, that is a very sad commentary on  this society.

I'm sorry, but that just cracked me up after reading the other poster's rant about his education that will "last for a lifetime".
