Mark Cuban had the following to say about the possibility of becoming a minority owner of the New York Mets:
“I’ve just come to the conclusion that if I’m going to write a huge check, I’d rather have my ass kissed than have to chase.”
I’m not entirely clear as to why, but I appreciated this quote. It provided a small amount of levity amid all of the doom and gloom surrounding the Wilpon/Madoff mess.
Maybe it has something to do with the fact that the thought of the ownership of my favorite franchise potentially risking it’s fiscal security on a Ponzi scheme is downright depressing.
Editor’s note: It should be pointed out that this lame ass colossal winter storm may have something to do with the level of gloom.
