New Jersey rocker Jon Bon Jovi has released a statement, clarifying his reported interest in buying into the ownership of the Atlanta Falcons. In the statement to ESPN's Chris Mortensen, Bon Jovi said, "Since helping to establish the Philadelphia Soul Arena Football team — from its inception through our 2008 championship season — I have always made clear my desire to someday enter the NFL." The Jovinator also confirmed that he had been in "confidential negotiations" since the Falcons' ownership approached him "some months ago."
I saw a Philadelphia Soul game - no lie. I am from Jersey, outside of Philly. Also, I wonder why Jovi isn't interested in bringing an NFL franchise to New Jersey! LOL! Like that would happen. The Jets and Giants already play in New Jersey, despite being New York teams.
What do you think of Jon Bon Jovi's sports interests?
