Got this off the Giants MB, interesting...
So is she single? I think that guys who want to hook up with rich chicks, want to know. LOL.
I know someone who knows the guy's daughter well.
That being said, everyone was aware that Lurie, Kraft and Fireman were competing for the Patriots back then.
Winning Is Their Business
Kraft and Lurie go way back, to when both were Pats season ticket holders. And both did indeed bid on buying the Pats from Orthwein.
Yeah, as I recall there were several bidders at the time and while I can't say I remember Laurie's name, the story makes sense. Kraft had the inside track with the Land and Stadium already in his grasp, as is well known.
Funny part about Lurie preferring Mirer to Bledsoe and passing on the Pats b/c it didn't make financial sense..............
Jeffrey Lurie - 04.18.94 - SI Vault
A friend of mine is an Eagles fan and I think he told me something like this once, but I can't remember right now. I'll e-mail him and ask him about it.
Yep, my friend (who grew up in eastern PA) says that when Lurie bought the Eagles the fans there were afraid he was going to move the team to L.A. because his parents are bigwigs in Hollywood. So it's a good bet if Lurie had his first choice the Patriots may have been the only AFC East team on the west coast.
(*I'm presuming then that in the early '90s it was already being rumored that either the Rams or the Raiders were planning on leaving Los Angeles.)
yep....Lurie was pissed when he lost out the bidding to robert Kaft. But Kraft had the inside advantage as he owned the old stadium.
