(Newser) – Rush Limbaugh is teaming with Dave Checketts, owner of the NHL’s St. Louis Blues, in a bid to buy the St. Louis Rams. Limbaugh confirmed the bid but refused to elaborate. “The Rams would be a great team to have,” he previously told the St. Louis Business Journal. No word on the asking price, but analysts estimate the team—among the worst in the league—is worth up to $750 million.
