I would have guessed that they’d languish on the market forever, but Tom Hicks apparently has a half dozen offers for that stake — probably a controlling stake — of the Rangers he’s been peddling.
Well, it is Texas, and rich Texans are different than rich people from other places, so guess I shouldn’t be too terribly surprised that the Rangers can be sold in this market. As for the bidders, I’m picturing (read: desperately hoping for) older men with bolo ties and a tall cowboy hats who say things like “well butter my butt and call me a biscuit! That Pe-Rez feller can throw him some fire!”
