    Love it that Theisman would be involved. So cool. Im from KC, but Joe was my uncle’s favorite quarterback. Im a baseball nutt that was looking for an independent team named after a dog. You can imagine my exitement seeing Theisman might do it. What a tremendous announcer he was as well. One of MY favorites. Hope he does it, and if so, I hope they still call it Hounds…or Dogs or something.

    $30 million for a stadium. Another $2 million for an Atlantic League team and $10 million+ for an Milb team. You do the math. Without any kind of state or county monies the numbers may not work. There’s a reason most teams don’t own their own stadiums.
