Interesting story from the Trib:
Pens co-owner Ron Burkle, who along with Lemieux helped rescue the hockey team from bankruptcy, apparently is interested in purchasing a bankrupt baseball team. The billionaire supermarket magnate reportedly is involved in discussions to buy the Los Angeles Dodgers.
ESPN reported that an investment group that includes former Dodger greats Steve Garvey and Orel Hershiser has met with Burkle about buying the team.
Burkle and Lemiuex tried to take over the Pirates a few years ago but the Bucs said no.
While most of us just compete to pay the water bill, it must be nice to have so much money you're worried about what historic franchise you can buy next. Really has to be a great feeling.
