See what was brewing with Jen Scordo today. Every day she shares 3 recent news stories. Today she discusses Ryan Reynolds interest in buying a hockey team, Jeff Bezos interest in the Commanders, and an NFL player selling a pokemon card to get a nice payday. Here are her stories from today.
Ryan Reynolds Could Be Interested in Buying Stake in Ottowa Senators
Ryan Reynolds already owns a stake in Wrexham FC, a soccer team at the lowest professional level in the UK. But now the Canadian may be investing in another team a little closer to his home. Reynolds is part of a team looking to buy the Ottowa Senators. Reynolds would however need some help to be able to purchase the team. While he has done very well for himself and has reportedly been smart with his investments, buying a professional hockey team is a step above buying a Welsh Soccer team at the lowest levels of the sport. The team will cost upwards of $700 million. But his interest is reportedly genuine, it is just a question of if it is feasible.
Jeff Bezos Looking to Purchase Washington Commanders
Amazon Founder, and someone who has at times been the richest man in the world, is looking to purchase the Washington Commanders. It was recently reported controversial owner Dan Snyder is looking to sell after his many scandals have caused issues between him and the league. Enter Jeff Bezos. Who unlike Ryan Reynolds, will need no outside help buying a professional team. It is still in the early stages. And Snyder has not even made his intentions to sell official. But Bezos is certainly a name to watch if the Commanders do end up on the market. It is also reported he would partner with Jay Z if a deal was there to be had.
