Marginally Substantianted Gossip: Drew Carey 4th Investor in Seattle Expansion Bid
Seriously, how much money to they need to get an MLS side up and running in Seattle? Between Joe Roth and Paul Allen alone you could potentially buy an entire league. Now there is talk in the press and in the land of gossip that Drew Carey -the official comedian of US Soccer™- is the mystery 4th investor in the project.
While I personally still have reservations about a Seattle team, but the presence of Carey would be quite comforting as he's probably the owner most likely to succeed Uncle Lamar Hunt as the league's most passionate owner. Additionally, he would be our Jon Bon Jovi (owner of an AFL team) or Jay-Z (owner of the New Jersey -soon to be Brooklyn- Nets); someone in the mainstream who would further advance MLS into the pop cultural lexicon.
The best bit about having Carey involved though is that a) he never misses an opportunity to eat a hot dog, b) write a great dick joke and c) co-op an interview to proselytize for the game. I mean what other straight man is going to get on national TV and say they are "gay" for Goldenballs?
