Default Cuban, Marino Want To Buy Penguins

http:///www.thepittsburghchannel.com...75/detail.html

PITTSBURGH -- Pittsburgh Penguins owner Mario Lemieux has made no secret of the fact that his hockey team is for sale.

On Tuesday morning, fans got the news for which they had been waiting -- a potential group of buyers with local ties has surfaced, and it would most likely keep the team in Pittsburgh.

Andy Murstein, president of New York-based Medallion Financial Corp., told ESPN Radio 1250's Tim Benz that Mark Cuban and Dan Marino have partnered into his group to make an offer for the Penguins.

Good to hear! I hope Mario seriously considers that group and sells to them - you know they will put up some serious cash, especially since Cuban is involved. Definitely positive news for Pens fans!

This is where I disagree with Cuban.

He states the Pirates are not willing to sell. Hell, my house is not on the market, but if you come up with a nice price, I'll sell.

So far Cuban loves talking about buying the Pirates, but put a number out there and see if those snake scumbags are willing to sell. It's business.

i have an idea, and you all may shoot it down

cuban buys the pens with marino, the pens get a new arena, cuban either brings the mavericks to pittsburgh or sells the mavs and starts a team in pittsburgh

NBA in Pittsburgh? Eeeek. IMO, I don't think it would work.
