The radio and conservative icon has teamed up with Dave Checketts, owner of the national Hockey League's St. Louis Blues, to try and purchase an ownership stake in the team.

It's difficult to determine from reports if they are trying to purchase the whole team or the 60 percent owned by the children of the late Georgia Frontiere, the long-time owner of the franchise who died last year.

Limbaugh couldn't give details, citing a confidentiality agreement with the Goldman Sachs investment bank which was retained to shop the team around.

A reason to hope for the deal to happen is so a Limbaugh-owned Rams could play the Donovan McNabb-led Philadelphia Eagles.

It was Limbaugh, of course, who in 2003 said on ESPN that quarterback McNabb was overrated because the media wanted a black team leader to succeed. That's choice locker room bulletin board material.

McNabb might need the motivation since it's easy to take the Rams lightly; they're pretty hapless. They started this year with no wins and four losses, picking right up where they left off last season when they had 2 wins and 14 losses.
