I root for the Cleve Browns even though they have zero chance of winning the super bowl. Chance of winning doesn't come into play on this obsession - doesn't come into play when I vote either. I vote for what I want - I do not "settle"..

The goal this year is not to win its to get 5% of the vote so ballot access is not an issue in four years. Right up until about a month and a half ago the Libertarians were doing little if any campaigning. They were fighting court battles the GOP brought against them. And it was the same with the Green and Constitution partys to get on the ballot. Its hard to fund raise when you can't campaign…

What we need is a better voting system...like the Borda method. Then the 3rd party candidate most assuredly would have a chance....but for just that reason you'll never see it....the controlling parties not wanting a 3rd party to have any chance. Plus it's a bit difficult to count unless you are computerized. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Borda_count

Buyer must be in place by September 1 in order to meeting Prospect League deadline

The Oakley Lindsay Center Board has received a proposal to buy the Quincy Gems.
 
At a special board meeting this afternoon, the OLC Board met mostly in executive session to to discuss the terms.
 
OLC Board Chairman Hubert Staff, Finance Chairman Jim Rinella and OLC Executive Director Rob Ebbing will meet with the prospective buyers to attempt to close the deal.
 
After last season, where the OLC said they lost $90,000 on the Gems, the Board announced their intentions to sell the team.
 
The OLC recieved an extension to September 1 from the Prospect League to commit to league play next year, an presumably transfer ownership. The League will receive a 3 percent cut of the sale price. 

Ebbing would not discuss the buyer or a ballpark of what the sale price will be. Ebbing said it is the intention for the team to continue playing in Quincy.

The Gems host the Danville Dans to start the Prospect League Eastern Division playoffs tonight at 6:30.
