Can you believe this? It's insane....not Kanye West "I didn't win an award so I'm gonna behave like a petulant child" insane, but crazy nonetheless. Apparently the cat that bought the Virgina Beach Mariners shortly before their unfortunate demise was beyond broke, driving around a 22 year-old hooptie and filing handwritten bankruptcy papers.
And what's crazier is that it seems that no one, not the city, the league, or the previous owners saw fit to actually find out if this dude had any money. How negligent is that? Man you can't even by a good used car without a background check, much less a pro sports franchise?
I guess since they sold it to him for $1 (yes, $1) they were pretty confident that he could come up with the cash. If they would have seen him rooting around in his car for loose change before the sale though I'm sure it would have been a red flag.
