An intersting article on Why American Businessman are buying into soccer.
First, there was the David Beckham coming-to-the-MLS hoopla in January. Then, this past week, two American businessmen, George Gillett Jr. and Tom Hicks, purchased 51 percent of storied English Premier League club Liverpool for $431 million.
I would like to think that the article is on cue with the thought that Amercian businessman finally get it, the reach the fact that soccer is a phenomena in and of itself.
I still don’t know if the country as whole will ever get it.
My fingers are crossed.
I’m tapped out this week so don’t look for me.
