Who wants to buy an NFL team in the Nations’ Capitol?

An ownership group led by Philadelphia 76ers governor Josh Harris that includes basketball Hall of Famer Magic Johnson has reportedly submitted a bid for the Washington Commanders at a $6 billion price. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported the bid has been officially submitted and is fully financed. Harris and billionaire Mitchell Rales would be the two principal investors in the franchise. It’s unclear if current embattled owner Daniel Snyder plans to accept the bid or continue courting offers.

How far would you go to see your favorite team in any sport play?

In a new survey of sports FANATICS, the average super-fan would trek five hours and 48 minutes to see a big game . . . and 45% of them have traveled out of the country for a game.

I’d rather travel :30 seconds and watch it in my basement.
