Now, about his shirt. Call it geeky or whatever. But I'll bet that if Bill Gates were getting started today, he'd have a shirt like that. Heck, he might have one like that now. This guy is the art director for a very profitable company and would bet that he could probably walk into any game developing company and pretty much demand a salary and get what he wants. To put it in perspective, the Phoenix Suns has revenue's around $132,000,000.00, with general operating costs around $40,000,000.00 plus $48,000,000.00 for players salary.Blizzard, on the other hand has about 2700 total employees and had reported revenue's at around $1.1BILLION. Now, I couldn't really find out all that much about their operating costs but I have a pretty good idea of what it takes to run a high end data center and the costs involved since I have to sit through budget meetings for our companies data center, which is a fairly decent size.I doubt this guy demanding $100 million, five year contracts, like Shaq, but I'll bet he gets paid fairly well for his efforts. Point is, I'll bet he can afford any shirt he wants. If he wants to wear blue flames, who are we to criticize? Maybe I'll get a shirt like that so someday I can have a job where I get to color pictures all day and work for a company where you don't get fired for playing video games on the company network.
