    I saw something about Oprah and Geffen's offer coming in at 1.4 billion. Ballmer basically said beat this...

    Zero chance of that happening.

    I couldn't believe this morning when I heard what Ballmer was going too pay for a ball team... $2 billion. I remember when those teams went for $80 million, and I thought that was high, then it was a couple $hundred million and I thought that was absurd. They must make money hand over fist?

    They got a lot of money, for sure. When you have $20 Billion+, I guess dropping $2 Billion on a sports team to him is like you or I going and buying a new car.

    He's worth that much? And I just heard this afternoon that he was ruled as incompetent? Either the poor old guy has dementia or he's playing the Media, pretty well. I believe once you learn how to make a certain amount of money, it begins a momentum that just keeps bringing it in.

    Ballmer is worth $20 Billion+, not Sterling. I think Sterling is only worth a paltry ~$2 Billion.
