  • Bill Maher Part-Owner of New York Mets

    Well, why not? Bob Hope did it; Bing Crosby did it, now Bill Maher has stepped up to the plate, so to speak.

    They call me Mr. Baseball. Not because of my love for the game; because of all the stitches in my head.

    From the linked article: "That's what's great about baseball," Maher said. "I finally found something I can be a-political about."

    This thread will die a quick death, I'm sure.

      Evidently, only the news is current, for it seems he bought his shares months ago. Still, it's good to see. Now, if only he and perhaps some of his friends (Seinfeld, for instance) can start buying up shares bit by bit, maybe they can get enough shares to... well... one can dream.
      Put it in the books.

        Bill Maher has never said anything funny in his life. I don't understand why people keep calling him a comedian.
        My top 10 players:

        1. Babe Ruth
        2. Barry Bonds
        3. Ty Cobb
        4. Ted Williams
        5. Willie Mays
        6. Alex Rodriguez
        7. Hank Aaron
        8. Honus Wagner
        9. Lou Gehrig
        10. Mickey Mantle

          This is not the place to start voicing opinions on Bill Maher. It's the place to discuss a famous entertainer's investment in a baseball team. Nothing more, nothing less.

          Any variations on this will result in deleted posts.

            So you want a discussion on this specific person's involvement in ownership, but any opinions at all regarding this specific person will be censored...

            Got it.
            I see great things in baseball. It's our game - the American game.

              Got it.
              Yup, you got it. Just as we wouldn't have discussions nor opinions about Bob Hope's movies nor TV specials, Bing Crosby's music nor movies, nor George W. Bush's and Mario Cuomo's politics. All four were involved with baseball at one time, and all four can be discussed in that context and that context alone at Baseball-Fever.

              It's all about baseball here, good sir.
              Put it in the books.

                  The first amendment doesn't apply to a site like this.

                      Well here is the baseball related question: Will Bill Maher's vulgar and controversial acts hurt the Mets image?

                        Did George Steinbrenner's vulgar and controversial acts hurt the Yankees' image?

                          Steinbrenner definitely hurt the Yankees image for me -ymmv - I'm sure Maher will ruin the Mets image for me too!
