By God, only in america. Just yesterday, my sister was an average Hoosier, daughter of a coal-miner, a medical technician living in a middle-class neighborhood. And today, she is part-owner of a professional basketball team!
The Indiana Pacers are staying in Indianapolis, but it will cost taxpayers at least $33.5 million over the next three years
The city and the Pacers are expected today to announce an agreement hailed by some as an important step in protecting the financial state of the city but criticized by others as a multimillion-dollar bailout of a professional sports team and its billionaire owner.
And if they're willing to shell out that much money to a sports team, that must mean the economic hard times are all over in Indianapolis! Boy, Sis, did you ever luck out. Say, when you go sit with the other owners in your fancy skybox, can I tag along?
