You know what's better than playing Football?

Playing football with a $100,000 brick of cash, that's what:

Every time they scratched their asses, they earned; there was so much money around for contractors, officials literally used $100,000 wads of cash as toys. "Yes -- $100 bills in plastic wrap," Frank Willis, a former CPA official, acknowledged in Senate testimony about Custer Battles. "We played football with the plastic-wrapped bricks for a little while."

And that is one of the more minor atrocities documented in this Rolling Stone article.
