The best of Steve Ballmer
(Excerpt) Read more at youtube.com ...
BTW, Ballmer is worth $20 billion.
He obviously didn’t buy the team to make money, because it would be an awfully long time, even under the best of circumstances, to make your money back on a sports team when you spent $2 billion buying it.
Pro sports are all about using taxpayer subsidies to generate operating profits.
I hate that look.
You should presume there’s something wrong with everything MSM is loudly in favor of, including this Donald Sterling thing, because behind it is almost always something on the politically-correct (Socialist) agenda. When you look into it, you usually find it.
Good Lord. He’s the real-life Michael Scott. I imagine he just screams at Bill Gates until he joins Ballmer in those lame videos.
He’ll be the perfect fit for zany pop culture marketing and PR for the Clippers.
Or, according to Bill O’Reilly, “the guy who started Microsoft”
Microsoft has done well for Ballmer and Gates. Gates at some 78 billion
and Ballmer at some 20 billion in wealth.
I’d rather have billions to buy a team than some YouTube videos making fun of the guy that can.
“Pro sports are all about using taxpayer subsidies to generate operating profits.”
Seattle has been trying to get b-ball back in town.
Ballmer is doing a LOT of development in Seattle.
I imagine talk of a new stadium to move his new team into isn’t out of the question.
opps - it is Paul Allen that is the developer, and owner of the Seahawks. Although I’m sure Ballmer has the wherewithal to figure out how to get a stadium built with the tax-payer’s money as well.
I mentioned that in my remarks. :)
As I said in my remarks, "BTW, Ballmer is worth $20 billion." I'm sure the people who made that video are aware of this too.
