Because We Have the Most Interesting Sports Owners in the Country


We’re not contending that the three owners of our four professional sports teams are the best in the country. Tom Hicks’ stewardship of the Texas Rangers alone is enough to severely compromise the integrity of that argument. But interesting? No stable of owners in any city can even remotely compete with the triumvirate of Hicks (Rangers and Stars), Mark Cuban (Mavericks), and Jerry Jones (Cowboys). Cuban gets fined for comments he makes via Twitter and regularly conducts interviews astride a StairMaster. Jones is a quote factory (sample product: “I’ve had all the fire knocked out of my butt tonight”) and makes the nightlife rounds with his expensive dress shirts unbuttoned to the navel. And Hicks? He’s despised on two continents and is currently stiff-arming creditors. Not as fun as the other two, but still riveting.
