Sports fans in St. Louis spend an inordinate amount of time telling anyone and everyone who will listen that they are the “best fans in baseball.” Unfortunately, with all the time they spent patting themselves on the back in baseball over the past few years, they didn’t notice that their football team, the St. Louis Rams, has been up for sale since the death of owner Georgia Frontiere in early 2008.
(Say hello to your
Cleveland Los Angeles St. Louis Los Angeles Rams!)
Frontiere’s children, who inherited the team (and a hefty estate-tax bill) from their late mother, have been unable to find a local buyer for their 60% stake in the team and are now preparing to put the team on the open market to any and all bidders - even those who have no interest in staying in Missouri (i.e., everyone). Los Angeles Rams - where have we heard that before?
