Limbaugh could be a partial owner of the Rams

Limbaugh could be a partial owner of the Rams
Posted by Mike Florio on October 4, 2009 1:38 PM ET

In 2003, Rush Limbaugh had a brief dalliance with the sport he loves, spending a month as the "voice of the fan" on ESPN's pregame show before resigning after a delayed reaction to comments made regarding Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb triggered a firestorm.

Since then, the mega-rich Rush's name has bubbled up from time to time as a potential owner of all or part of an NFL team.

And it could be coming to fruition.

Charley Casserly of CBS reports that, of the three groups that submitted bids to buy the St. Louis Rams, one group includes Dave Checketts and Limbaugh.

It's unknown whether the bid includes the 40 percent owned by Stan Kroenke, or the 60 percent currently held by the two children of the late Georgia Frontiere.

Checketts previously seemed to complain that his interest in buying the team wasn't being taken seriously, perhaps because at the time he was the only buyer willing to commit to keeping the team in St. Louis. Now that three groups have submitted proposals under the condition that team won't be moved, Checketts and Limbaugh (and whoever else is in the group) might have a chance.

Any sale would have to be approved by 75 percent of the league's current owners.
