This is from Randy's Rants, written by a radio journalist in Houston.
We have some more info on the Houston Comets.
1. Hilton Koch will officially step down as Comets owner this morning in Houston during a press conference.
2. Jim McIngvale has declined interest in purchasing the franchise. McIngvale, known locally as "Mattress Mack", is in the furniture business and is a competitor of Hilton Koch. He had expressed interest in acquiring the Comets in years past.
3. If no new owner is found by November 2008 or January 2009, the Comets will either a) relocate, or b) fold, according to WNBA sources.
More news as it develops.
P. S. This is the 200th post of the Pleasant Dreams blog. Here's hoping that we can make it to 400!
