Much Less-Wealthy, Far Less-Famous Radio Personality Says He'll Buy St. Louis Rams, Succeed Where Rush Limbaugh Failed


St. Louis sports radio host Randy Karraker announced yesterday on his show The Fastlane (ESPN 101.1 FM) that he's putting together a group to purchase the St. Louis Rams.

How does Karraker plan to buy a team recently valued at an astronomical $900 million? He's soliciting donations. Whatever you have -- be it "25 cents or $600 million."

We'll let Randy explain...

BTW: Karraker says that if his effort fails to win the Rams, he'll give all the donations made for the purchase of the team to the Special Olympics of Missouri.

That seems like a pretty fitting charity to us, especially given how "special" Karraker's idea is.
