Although there is no indication Dallas billionaire Mark Cuban will be buying his hometown Pirates anytime soon, he could be coming to a new arena near you as a limited partner in the Penguins' new ownership group.
"I have told several people who have contacted me that, although I wouldn't be the lead, or largest investor, I would kick in some money if it would help," Cuban wrote in an e-mail interview.
damn straight hogan, i don't have a problem with cuban, he's a bit nuts but he likes to win.
The thing with Cuban is, you never know if he's actually serious about the stuff he says or not. Normally, I don't think much about clowns like him...but after 12 losing seasons (and staring number 13 in the face, a MLB record I believe)..then drastic measures are necessary.......he's proven he's no Jeffrey Loria and that alone makes him ok in my book to take over the Pirates.
