Grass Roots Effort; Lets buy the Rockies

Postby acsguitar » Fri Jul 29, 2005 11:28 pm

Anyone wanna try to pitch in with me to by the rockies? There ownership is terrible..

I have 300$ to my name

Someone spot me 40 million..

With some effort I think we can do it!


Seriously though what if the cafe was able to pitch in enough money to buy a major league franchise that would be sick!!!

i know i'd but stock in it!

We could call the stadium FBC stadium!
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment

I wouldn't mind owning part of one of the teams. Couldn't we get someone better than the Rockies though? :-D
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.

The Rockies would be difficult to find a winning formula in Coors, but winning the division wouldn't take much.

The Royals would be nice, but I don't think they have too much of a draw...hard to get players to go there. How about we buy Tampa? The AL East would be hard, but they already have a bunch of prospects and everyone wants Lou out as it is.

I got $100 bucks to pitch to buy the D-Rays.

I like the stadium....we could buy the stadium.....does that count? :-D

Nice link Hong_fu! ;-D Didn't realize my Rangers were worth $326 million. If we're worth that, why can't we land any solid starting pitching?! :~(
