The Joliet JackHammers have reached out to Rush Limbaugh to become an investor in the franchise. Now that he will no longer be part of the group looking to purchase the St. Louis Rams we see that he may have some funds available to invest somewhere else. Why not with the Joliet JackHammers?
“Rush has an obvious interest in getting involved with professional sports as seen in the news as of late,” said JackHammers Executive Vice President/General Manager, Jamie Toole. “Now that he is no longer part of the group looking to purchase the St. Louis Rams, we thought we would reach out and see if he might be interested in getting involved in Professional Baseball. Do we agree with everything Rush has to say, no. But that doesn’t mean that he can’t be apart of owning a professional sports team. To be politically correct we are willing to make the same offer to the likes of Ed Schultz, Bill Maher, James Carville, Bill O’Reilly, Don Imus, John Stewart, Mike Huckabee, or local radio talk show star Scott Slocum.”
This morning a member of the JackHammers staff reached out to Rush to introduce the JackHammers to the radio talk-show host star. The Team has offered Rush the typical investment package for a minor league baseball team as well as some creative alternatives. Such as giving Rush a stake in the Team for time on his national radio show. The Team has yet to get a response from Rush or his people, but will continue to pursue the possibilities.
“We think Baseball is as American as you can get, why can’t an American buy part of a professional baseball team,” states Jamie Toole. “Regardless of your political beliefs we feel that every American that has the means to buy all or part of a professional sports team should have the right to do so. Life, Liberty and Baseball – what’s more American than that.”
