I have to be the only person who is enjoying this. I love a good legal battle.

I think it is hilarious. A group of people who have mismanaged a franchise fighting a group of people who have mismanaged a league.

I'm not suffering anymore then I would if the Sox were playing. You know it's the whole 85 years without a World Series thing that gets me.

As a fan, I'm not suffering anymore, I'm just numb. It's all just too surreal. The Alabama guy sounds decent enough. He claims that he'll figure out someway of financing a new stadium using his own money.

Truthfully, it sounds like a ploy, but if he's serious, I'm all for this guy buying the team.

However, he wants to keep the team 'competitive' so the Sox better figure out someway of beating Joe Mays, he may be a Twinkie for a looong time.

Minnesota fans are ready to be screwed....I mean they took the Northstars away so they could play in Dallas, and Hockey IMO is much bigger in the land of 10,000 Lakes than Baseball....

At least they aren't contracting us...I think I will raise tickets prices for that amount of goodwill!
