But we don't have an owner running a business, we have an old man with a hobby. To some of you he's the smartest businessman in the world. To me he's an old man with a hobby.
The problem with this entire analogy is that you seem to think JR is losing money on his "hobby" when in reality, the Sox are most likely easily taking in tens of millions of dollars in profit every year.
