most of us saw Akroid on friday nite footbal make some comments about how he Loves the CFL. and then he was asked about buying the Renedages or some CFL franchise ( i say, invest in Halifax ).....well here's an article about it:http://www.tsn.ca/cfl/news_story.asp?ID=139990
Hollywood funnyman Dan Aykroyd may be interested in buying shares in the Ottawa Renegades.
In an interview during Friday Night Football in Week 16, TSN broadcasters Chris Cuthbert and Glen Suitor vaguely asked the Ottawa-born TV/movie star if he would consider buying shares in the Ottawa franchise.
"It's possible, if the economics are right," said Aykroyd. "When you build a great franchise it can be a lot of fun."
Aykroyd, who was in Calgary promoting a brand of tequila called Patron, was watching the Stampeders battle the Hamilton Tiger Cats when the interview was conducted.
Renegades president Lonie Glieberman was informed of Aykroyd's comments.
"We're not interested in selling," said Glieberman, "but we are going to try and get in touch with him to see if he wants to get involved."
The Gliebermans own 51% of the Renegades, while Bill Smith owns about 45% and Bill and Brad Watters have the remaining 4%.
In 1991, fellow Canadian actor John Candy partnered up with then Los Angeles King owner Bruce McNall and Wayne Gretzky to purchase the Toronto Argonauts.
..........so atleast we know the Glibermans are sticking around!
