Imagine how upset I'd be if I gave a crap about football

Via HuffPo:
Rush Limbaugh is part of a group bidding for ownership of the St. Louis Rams football team, it has been confirmed.

Limbaugh — a native of Cape Girardeau, Missouri — first mentioned his interest in owning the NFL team this spring, and has now teamed with St. Louis Blues owner Dave Checketts to submit a bid.

Limbaugh released the following statement to KMOX radio:

"Dave and I are part of a bid to buy the Rams, and we are continuing the process. But I can say no more because of a confidentiality clause in our agreement with Goldman Sachs. We cannot and will not talk about our partners. But if we prevail we will be the operators of the team."
As it happens, I'm from a small town within two hours of St. Louis. (When I am compelled by circumstance to pretend to care, I root for the Chiefs.) I'd hate to have to root against a Missouri team, but nothing will turn me more quickly into an ardent Rams detractor than knowing that The Bloated One owns them.

Update: For the perspective of a genuine football fan, I would direct you to Ta-Nehisi.


  1. He would get at most a very small minority ownership of the team, from which he will pay out of his nose, just for the opportunity to schmooze with the players and get an "owners" box at the stadium. And I hate to admit it but there have been and are team owners who are even more reprehensible than Rush. Rush will have zero power so I simply don't see him as any threat to the game. OK the players might get freaked out by his mancrushs, but I do not care about that.


  2. Are you actually commenting about a sporting activity? This is possibly the most amusing post I have ever read.
