About six months ago, while p
erusing an UK tabloid checking things out on the internet, I noticed a report from across the pond at The Sun indicating that Kansas City Chiefs owner Clark Hunt was in the running to buy West Ham, a Premier League soccer team.
(On a side note, these tabloids are freakin' hilarious. Here's what they said about Hunt six months ago: "WEST HAM are set to go Yankee Doodle Dandy with US tycoon Clark Hunt emerging as a shock contender in a £120million buyout.")
Of course, nothing came of the report.
Early this week another report emerged from the South London Press indicating the Chiefs owner was interested in purchasing another team called Crystal Palace.
Not so, says Nick Wright of 610 Sports. Per Wright, Chiefs PR has said Hunt is not interested in buying the team.
The reports linking Hunt to other soccer teams probably comes from his own affiliation with soccer. The Chiefs owner also owns the Dallas and Columbus MLS teams.
