Limbaugh To Buy My Football Team? Better Not.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch is reporting that Rush Limbaugh is part of a group trying to buy the St. Louis Rams. Huh? Limbaugh owning a team in a sport dominated by African-American athletes? I don't see it.

If you don't know Limbaugh, he's that fascist blowhard that your right-wing screwball of a neighbor has blasting on his radio every day. And here are just some of the hateful, racist things Limbaugh has broadcast:

"They ought to give a posthumous medal to James Earl Ray. Godspeed, James."

(To a black listener:) "Take that bone out of your nose and shut up."

"Historians say slavery was a bad thing. Not so. The South was built on slavery...and the streets were sure a lot safer at night then."

"Nelson Mandela was a communist agitator."

(About black pro football players:) "I mean it looks like it's the Bloods vs. Crips without weapons out there."

I know NFL owners are a good old boys network of white, middle-aged conservatives, but do they want the kind of turmoil and divisiveness that Limbaugh brings? I can just hear Limbaugh now after a game where one of his wide receivers drops a game-winning pass (a regular occurrence with the Rams): "I'm going to fire that jungle bunny. Probably had fried chicken grease on his fingers."

If Limbaugh does purchase the Rams, I'll find another team to root for. And I'll be gleeful each time Limbaugh's team loses.

I'm with you all the way, Tim. But, on the bright side, if Limbaugh DID buy the Rams, maybe after his next racially offensive remark the players could gang tackle him and break every bone in his worthless body. Or his limo could be mass-egged every time it pulled up to or left the stadium. Or Air America could be constantly piped full blast into his private box. Or someone could sneak snippets of Keith Olbermann cutting him to shreds onto the stadium big screen and sound system. Or Limbaugh could be caught alone in a stadium elevator and be pummeled within an inch of his life. PRICELESS! The possibilities are endless...

Rooting hard for your Twins. Hate the Yanks!

Those damn Yankees did it again. The only thing I hate worse than rich old loudmouth egomaniacs buying world championships are the SONS of rich old loudmouth egomaniacs buying world cjampionships! :(

My sympathies. Twins have a good team, with many players I covet...Maurer and Nathan, to mention two.

My Minnesota pal who lives down here says he is going back home to attend opening day at your new park next year. Can you imagine how cold it will be for baseball games there in April and October?
