Don't Do it Kroenke

Prospective St. Louis FC owner Stan Kroenke is having some problems with the cross ownership rules in his pursuit of the team. NFL rules prevent an owner from owning teams in separate markets, and Kroenke is the owner of the Denver Nuggets and Divealanche.

Problem right?

One idea was that Kroenke was going to have his son assume the Denver sports franchises. Now Kroenke is kicking around the idea of having his wife own the St. Louis FC.

Who says that history does not repeat itself?

Honestly Stan, you were a co-owner of a team with a woman who killed her husband to get control of a team. How do you not see this? You cannot be this stupid.

So watch this happen. Kroenke purchases the FC, and moves the team to Los Angeles. A couple of years later, Kroenke mysteriously dies. Like if he's an ace pilot, he will die flying a kite or something.

And then his wife will run the franchise into the ground and move the team to some third-world country masquerading as a Midwest shanty town.

This cannot end well.

The first thing I need to ask is how good are Stan Kroenke's swimming skills?

Let's calm down here. The situation may not be analagous. For instance, is Mrs. Kroenke a showgirl who shoots out bastard kids the way a stripper in a Thailand tourist bar does ping pong balls?

I don't think the analogy applies. Mrs. Kroenke is Ann Walton Kroenke...as in Wal-Mart Walton...as in net worth of $3.2 billion. She doesn't need a contract killer to be rich...unless she grows bored of Stanley and has him killed for sport.

I'll never forget when I came up with the Frontandrearie bit. It was in the Subway line at the Plaza, while Mart and I awaited our sandwiches!

Ping pong balls? I had a broad right here in the Apple that would do eggs, plum tomatoes and lemons.

We'd take BP with one of those toy wooden bats. She had almost as much movement (and speed) as Wakefield.

She'd put a condom on the lemons...you can imagine why.

I heard the wii app for that comes out next month. They're still ironing out a few bugs in the controller. BTW, if you see her again tell her see can have Scott Shields' spot in the bully.

Too soon.

Speaking of Irwindale, I was at the Speedway and went to the concession stand for a pop, when who should appear on the other side of the counter but Gary Myrick. I handed him a fiver and told him he could keep the change if he'd sing "She Talks In Stereo," but he just threw the money at me stormed off.

What a rip!
