How do you celebrate signing the richest contract in the history of American sports? With lots of champagne, that’s how.
As the ink was drying on his $325 million, 13-year contract with the Miami Marlins, 25-year-old Giancarlo Stanton was seen Monday night partying with boatloads of Moët including a special edition bottle of Nectar Impérial Rosé Leopard Luxury Edition Methuselah that was given to him as a gift from Miami party girl Julieanna Goddard aka Julz around 2:30 a.m. at the Delano's FDR. Although he can now afford to buy one or hundreds on his own dime, the special bottle will set you back $20,000 at a nightclub. Stanton was understandably in exceptional spirits, celebrating with his guy friends throughout the evening with multiple bottles. When Stanton received his final bottle parade, the club broke out in cheers. They need those people in the stands at Marlins Park.
