Top Five Reasons Why Rush and the Rams Are a Perfect Fit
Given his brief and disastrous fling with ESPN's pro-football preview show Sunday NFL Countdown
, you might think Rush Limbaugh would be well-advised to put those NFL days far behind him. But like Brett Favre, Rush just can't seem to stay away. Limbaugh confirmed
on October 6 hat he's made a bid to return to the game as part owner of the St. Louis Rams. And why not? He loves to call the shots. Limbaugh was born in Cape Girardeau, Missouri—only 116 midwestern miles from the Rams' Edward Jones Dome—once worked as director of group sales for the Kansas City Royals, and reportedly signed a contract worth $400 million
. In other words, he's already more qualified than former team owner Georgia Frontiere.
Here's why this will work:
1. No one talks trash like Limbaugh.
2. The Rams have no offense. Rush loves to offend.
3. Since Marge Schott died, no one in pro sports has had the balls to slur African-Americans, Jews, and gays.
4. Limbaugh knows how it feels to flunk the draft—he claimed his 4-F status was due to an old football injury.
5. Look at Cardinals owner Bill Bidwell. To make big money in pro sports, you don't even have to win.
Bonus Reason: George W. Bush owned a pro sports team. How hard can it be?
