Remember this scene?

Immediately following the Kentucky Derby, Wes Welker started making it rain hundreds on people. OK, he handed them out (how cool would that be?) with a friendly police officer standing nearby.

But, while Welker was being an awesome human being, paying random strangers, TMZ is now reporting Churchill Downs overpaid the Denver Broncos receiver by $14,858.


All told, Welker won 57,193.90 on May 3, and a computer error mixed with human error resulted in the even larger pay out to the NFL star. Luckily for him, eating $15,000 shouldn’t be a problem, what, with making $6 million per year.

Also, how do I attend next year’s Derby with Welker? Not only did he apparently pick the winner, but dude is crazy generous, too.
