Want to buy your own Arena Football League Team?: Following in the dubious tradition of the Indiana Pacers (they held a telethon in the 1977 to stay afloat). The Indiana FIrebirds go belly-up and decide, "Hey, let's sell this thing on eBay!"

Anyone think this is a decent investment? Hmm. Do we have $60M in net worth between us all? Or $6M in walking around money? (I have a high-speed printer here at work, and I'll crank out bills as fast as I can. Anyone else wanna chip in?)

The doorbell rings; it's a telegram for Homer. The doorbell rings; it's a telegram for Homer. Homer: [reading] "Project Arcturus couldn't have succeeded without you. This will get you a little closer to that dream of yours. It's not the Dallas Cowboys, but it's a start. Drop me a line if you're on the East Coast, Hank Scorpio." [a whole football team is on his lawn] [disappointed] Aw, the Denver Broncos! Marge: I think owning the Denver Broncos is pretty good. [a player tries to catch the ball, but falls] Homer: Yeah, yeah. Marge: Well, explain to me why it isn't. [another player tries to catch, but hits the ball with his head] Homer: [sighs] You just don't understand football, Marge.
