The San Diego Chicken gets paid....

When most people think of sports individuals who make six figure salaries in appearance fees, they think Michael Jordan, Jeff Gordon, or even Ryan Howard. Well the San Diego Chicken is making money as well, to the tune of over six figures last year just on appearances alone.

The 55 year old man beneath the mask, Ted Giannoulas, is thinking about hanging up his feathers and head. Giannoulas has been the San Diego Chicken for the past 35 years, which is pretty damn impressive if you ask me.

However, in this economy, I think Ted should probably rethink this plan to retire the chicken. He does not want to have make a comeback in five years as "The artist formely known as the San Diego Chicken."
