I understand Ken Griffey, Jr. has a hand in bringing a new arena football team to Cincinnati. According to Mark Curnutte:
Bengals defensive tackle Sam Adams has purchased rights to bring arena league football team to U.S. Bank Arena. It would begin play in April, Adams said Friday.
The still-nameless team would play in the af2, arenafootball2.
Adamsâ€™ investment group includes Reds outfielder Ken Griffey Jr., Adams said. The two became friends when playing in Seattle in the mid- and later-1990s for the Seahawks and Mariners.
I don't know why this reminds me of Michael Jordan playing baseball; I guess my mind has only one synapse for trans-athletic activities. Thankfully, there are no implications that this cross-sporting event has anything to do with secret suspensions or large gambling debts.
