THEIR DAD WOULD HAVE BOUGHT MAN U:

Yankees Reportedly Weighing Bid for Premier League's Tottenham Hotspur (Andrew Johnson, 7/18/10, MLB Fanhouse)

The New York Yankees are considering making an ownership bid for soccer club Tottenham Hotspur F.C. of the English Premier League, according to a report in the Daily Star, a British tabloid.

With control of the Yankees now in the hands of George Steinbrenner's sons Hal and Hank -- the latter of whom played soccer in college -- the pair could lodge a £450 million pound (roughly $687 million) bid for the club, known in England as Spurs, said the Star.
