Today I received word that am offically part owner of an NFL team: The Green Bay Packers. I was fresh out of college and very broke the last time the Packers offered up a chance for ownership, but this time I decided to take the $250 plunge.
The only publicly owned team in all of professional sports, the Packers also have some of the most rabid and proud fans. Present company included. I have to be careful though, as a shareholder, I can get fined
$500,000 for 'detrimental activity' or $5,000 for simply betting on a game. It's a lot of responsibility, but worth the risk.
