Well, he's not Georgia

It is rumored that Rush Limbaugh is interested in becoming a part-owner of the St. Louis Rams. I could think of worse things.

A Rams fan for 30-plus years I don't talk much about them these days as they've had about 5 good seasons in the last 20+ years (see here for a fine example of the chilling effect such suckage has on fans). Over the near 30 years of Georgia's ownership of the franchise the most infuriating thing about it was the lack of committment. Oh, there was "committment" mind you but not to winning, only to Georgia's bottom line. I'm more convinced now than ever that whatever success the franchise found under her leadership (NFC title game appearances in the late '80s, the SB 34 win in 2000) was accidental at best and/or in spite of her management.

Looking forward all a fan can ask for is ownership that wants to win and will do what they can to put their coaches and players in a position to win games. Rush is well-known as a fan of the game and no one can accuse him of not wanting to 'win' in any aspect of his professional life.

From that standpoint, if he has the money and the want-to I'm all for it.
