Your Mother Slept With Wilt Chamberlain

A Sports Blog on why ALL Teams Suck…Again!

The day of the dark alliance occurred yesterday

Posted by Thomas the Terrible on October 21, 2008


Imagine what could happen if the two owners of the two biggest douche-bag teams have teamed up to form the biggest evil douche-bag company ever. Yes, you should be worried about this. Imagine the power that both Hal Steinbrenner (George would be involved but takes a silent stance in the process in order to pull the strings) & Jerry Jones can muster together. Are you scared? Yes? Then good you need to be because it’s happened.

Only appropriate that the two most evil empires in all of sports join forces. I was wondering who the villain would be in the new Justice League movie…

Daniel Kaplan and Don Muret of The SportsBusiness Journal are reporting that the two teams have gone in on a business venture together — a concessions company called Legends Hospitality Management. The Dark Alliance is formed.

Just from the name I can imagine a company that will be geared to help players like Pacman Adam Jones and Joba Chamberlin beat their alcohol problems. Actually I thought Legends Hospitality Management was the nursing home they put Steinbrenner in.

The Yankees and Cowboys each own a third of the company, with Goldman Sachs owning most of the rest for the first-of-its-kind venture.

Legends will manage regular concessions, suite catering and team stores at the new Yankees and Cowboys stadiums, which are set to open next year at a cost of more than $1 billion each. Legends also will pursue accounts in the major leagues, college sports and abroad, the sources said.

The first-of-its-kind initiative between two of pro sports’ star teams is the idea of Gerry Cardinale, the Goldman managing director who helped create the Yankees’ regional sports channel, the YES Network, and brokered the return of Alex Rodriguez to the team last year.

It’s funny how both these franchises are receiving new stadiums next season. Think about much an already overly priced hotdog will be now. I hope the Yankee and Cowboy fans enjoy their $10 hotdog and $18 beer because I imagine those items will be priced somewhere in that area.

So, I guess Cowboy and Yankee fans will have to overpay for big name but ultimately disappointing stadium fare.

It’s been said that the rich get richer and these two franchises somehow-someway manages to make money hand over fist even though they are failing in the win/loss columns.

Both Jones & Steinbrenner have spent a bunch of money on their current teams. And neither is getting much of a return on their investment. Just like the Yankees the Cowboys have the most inflated payroll in their respective league.

Yes, I’d like a RomoBurger, slightly overrated, with TOnions and hold the playoff wins.

    Dallas is not the evil empire of football. They are just misunderstood and have had a run of bad luck lately.

  2. The fact that Dallas has associated itself with a Steinbrenner makes them the evilest team in the NFL by default. 🙂

    It’s called making a business decision. Times are hard and sometimes you have to make a deal with the devil to get by. Think college girls who strip. MOST of them aren’t up there ’cause they like it.

  4. It’s a concession stand for heavens sake. And quite frankly it’s a rather stupid move on Steinbrenner’s part. After all the majority of Yankee fans are either Giant or Jets fans and they are getting a new stadium as well.

    Both these franchises are worth billions, at least according to Forbes, so honestly they don’t really need each other.

    I didn’t know any college girls who stripped when I was in school.

    Either way I still think the Cowboys are the most evil of the NFL franchises. Jerry made such a great investment in employing Pacman and even flipped the bill for his 24 hour security.

    Win at all costs…to bad it’s not what they are doing at the moment.

    I knew a couple of girls who stripped. And most girls don’t advertise the side hustle. And rich people have problems too
