This is the second post I've done in a row whose headline ends with a question mark. Kinda goofy, eh? Especially since I've written about two posts in the past month.
Anyway, Ted Turner told Robin Roberts on Good Morning America -- who knew she was on Good Morning America? Who knew Good Morning America was still on TV? -- that he'd like to buy the Braves. Maybe he was kidding. I haven't seen the clip.
Three or four years ago, I would have greeted this like I would news the home team had traded for Jake Peavy and Albert Pujols. Now, I'm not so sure.
Yeah, it'd be a hell of a lot more fun having Ted sitting in the box seats every night. But the dude has proven in the past few years that he's loonier than ever. North Korea's not so bad? Sorry, Capt. Outrageous. Gonna have to disagree with you there, as Bill Lumberg said.
According to Bill Shanks' piece about this, Liberty has to hold onto the club until at least 2011. So this is probably just Ted muttering.
