Yesterday the news broke that the Buffalo Bills are lobbying the New York state legislature to allow stadium beer sales starting at 11 a.m. on game days. Today the word out of Buffalo is that Pabst Blue Ribbon owner C. Dean Metropoulos is very much interested in purchasing the Bills. Intriguing coincidence.
The Metropoulos family had previously tried to become owners of the Jacksonville Jaguars and recently made news reviving the Hostess brand after it fell into bankruptcy and saving American’s beloved Twinkies — must be something about “lovable losers” that attracts them to business investments, and made their fortune selling off Pinnacle Foods, Chef Boyardee and Bumblebee Tuna. 1335th richest person in the world according to Forbes. You could do worse, Buffalo.
