LeBron James Owns The Boston Red Sox?
This news broke yesterday and New England sports fans are still trying to come to grips with the fact that one of their most bitter rivals, now literally owns them.
Yes folks, according to this WCVB report, Lebron James is now a part of the ownership group of the oldest and most historic Boston sports team in the region. The Boston Red Sox.
While the financial specifics of the deal are unclear, the fact that 'The King' will be a part owner of 'Fenway Sports Group' means much more than just a Sox shareholder. 'FSG' controls Roush Fenway Racing, The Liverpool Football Club and NESN as well.
I can't wait to ask Tom Caron, (Our Boston Sports Insider), if he has lunch plans with his new boss yet, and most importantly, is The Shark Morning Show invited?
He famously 'Took his talents to South Beach' then went on to win four NBA Championships with 3 different teams. All while Boston fans, such as myself, were rooting against him the entire time.
Now I don't know how to feel.
He just led his Los Angeles Lakers to their SEVENTEENTH NBA title, which ties my beloved Boston Celtics for the most championships in the history of the league.
How am I supposed to cheer him?
Let's say for Opening Day at Fenway, he is introduced and walks through the doors of The Green Monster wearing a Number 23 Red Sox uniform top and throws out the first pitch?
How am I supposed to boo him?
This is a brain melting conundrum that will take a lot of time to figure out.
