Contador goes Jerry Maguire: "show me the money."
Yo, da man is making his needs clear. On vacation in Curacao, two-time Tour de France winner Alberto Contador left no doubt what’s on his mind. “Show me the money,” said El Pistelero. “Yvon Sanquer, Patrick Lefevere, Jonathan Vaughters, Caisse d’Epargne, show me the money.”
Making repeated “hands out” gestures stolen from Cuba Gooding in the famous sports agent morality tale Jerry Maguire, Alberto is all about the benjamins. Brother and manager Fran, playing the Tom Cruise character to perfection, said “alright, I get it, I get it.”
The normally soft spoken Contador had apparently watched the Jerry Maguire movie a dozen times while on his island holiday.
“I wanna see that 8 million. Show me that 8 million. Put it in my hand, I gots to touch that shit, right here, right now,” said Contador, showing off a suprisingly good gangsta impression.
Word to the Kazakh Cycling Federation president: do not mess with this man. He’s on a Jerry Maguire riff and Scarface could be next. Go to the bank, get the money and pay the man.
