What if a celebrity owned your favorite team?
Marc Bertrand and Lou Merloni joined Sports Tonight to nominate a celebrity to own a Boston sports team.
"I'm going to have Dennis Leary purchase the Boston Bruins." said Bertrand, "Out of all the celebrities that attach themselves to teams, I think the most authentic and genuine one is Dennis Leary and the Bruins."
Merloni went with a duo that would better the Red Sox organization.
"Co-ownership, two [Italians] Robert De Niro and Al Pacino to own the Red Sox." said Merloni, "Can't you see De Niro? 'You… You, Jon Lester. You're good.' These guys would be perfect."
