Rush Limbaugh Interested in Buying NFL's Rams

Top-ranked radio talk-show host Rush Limbaugh has expressed an interest in buying the National Football League’s St. Louis Rams.

"The Rams would be a great team to have," Limbaugh told the St. Louis Business Journal. "I have a lot of friends in ownership in the NFL, and my desire to get involved has not been a secret."

Limbaugh, who has an estimated worth of $300 million, grew up in Cape Girardeau, Mo., south of St. Louis.

He had a previous connection with the NFL when he served briefly as a commentator for ESPN in 2003.

The Rams are not currently for sale, but owner Georgia Frontiere died earlier this year at age 80 and her children have become majority owners.

Chip Rosenbloom, Frontiere’s son, said earlier this month that he is not considering putting the team on the market, USA Today reported.

But Rosenbloom told the St. Louis Dispatch: "If the right person at the time right time with the right price came, I suppose that you might sell your house, right? So, I don't say never . . . If we get a phone call today from somebody who says the right things, we would listen."
