Online Casino Gambles on Bid for Blues

The St. Louis Blues have an interested buyer. It's an online gambling website that I won't mention here, because I believe it's just a stunt for free publicity. I don't even believe that the group is even serious about actually buying it. Check out this quote from the article and judge for yourselves.
"Occasionally, we've had problems (closing deals)," president Dennis Rose told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. "We've been outbid, and some years ago, people were a little bit cynical about the revenues with online gaming. Now, they're convinced how big it has become."

The offer made by the company was made public through e-mails sent to media members. The release stated a "letter of intent" was sent to Laurie, who has yet to respond or offer any comment on the proposal.

"Hopefully, we'll hear from them very soon," Rose told the newspaper. "I'll sit here (waiting) with some rum and Coke."
Does that sound like a serious investor to you?

Still, news is news, and I'll post the link at the bottom.
