Tucson may get third pro team soon

Reggie Fowler, former Sahuaro prep star turned Chandler business whiz is close to buying the Minnesota Vikings,which would make him...well, here. Read about it in the Republic:
If successful, Fowler would become the third Tucson native in less than two years to buy a major professional sports franchise. He would join Arte Moreno of Phoenix, who became the first Hispanic to own a major U.S. sport when he bought the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim in May 2003 for $184 million, and Robert Sarver, who now lives near San Diego and bought the Phoenix Suns last spring for $401 million.

Pretty neat, huh? I love this town.
