Usually when somebody gets a $120 million raise overnight, you would expect it to go to their heads. And when that somebody is then confronted by the TMZ cameras, most bets are off. Drunken tirade, punch-out with the cameraman, screeching off in a six-figure sports car — none of those would surprise us. But a down-to-earth, nine-figure Man of the People? And a Super Bowl MVP-winning one, at that? Maybe Joe Flacco is the real deal, after all.
If you thought the story of the Ravens signal caller rolling into the McDonald’s drive-thru after signing his big deal was a load of bull, get a load of the video below of the NFL’s highest-paid arm strolling through the airport with the good folks of Baltimore — all the way through the shuttle ride to the $12 parking garage. Even the cameraman was impressed enough to shoot him a compliment — and take a dig at Tom Brady at the same time.
