Conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh has reportedly teamed up with NHL St. Louis Blues team owner Dave Checketts and other investors to bid for the purchase of NFL franchise, the St. Louis Rams.
While the news has been confirmed by Limbaugh, as well as Checketts, further information has not been revealed.
The Rams said, in a statement, that a “strategic review” is underway.
Forbes magazine valued the Rams at $913 million back in September, ranking them 25th out of 32 NFL teams.
Limbaugh is a football fanatic. In 2000, he came close to landing a commentator position on “Monday Night Football.” Three years later, Limbaugh joined ESPN’s “Sunday NFL Countdown.”
After a month on the show, he resigned amid controversy after saying that the media wanted Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb to succeed because he is black.
He is also one of the most highly paid figures in broadcast media.
The Rams has some history as well. In 1995, the team’s owner, Georgia Frontiere, moved them from Los Angeles to St. Louis. She died in January 2008 and her two children are now majority owners.
