Khan is not just an American. He is a Mustached American, and he joins Minnesota Vikings owner Zygi Wilf as the only Mustached American majority owners in professional football...Khan joins Rams minority owner Stan Kroenke (another lip-hair wearer), who as of now will retain his remaining 40 percent of the team, to form a Mustached American center of power. This all coming appropriately in the shadow of the world's largest mustache -- St. Louis' Gateway Arch.And what do wealthy, mustached men generally share in common? Republican leanings. The Post-Dispatch reports that Khan tends to give his money to G.O.P. candidates. That said, you could hardly call him a big political donor with just $7,500 in contributions to federal campaigns since 1995.
I recently signed an agreement with respect to the purchase of the St. Louis Rams. The proposed transaction is subject to approval by the National Football League and its owners. To that end, I am excited to begin the approval process and will, in accordance with league policy, proceed on a confidential basis and refrain from public comment. As a long time Rams fan and supporter of the City of St. Louis, I am thrilled to have the opportunity to be considered by the NFL and am extremely grateful for the trust placed in me by Chip Rosenbloom and Lucia Rodriguez.
