Odds & Ends: Malcolm Glazer Alive, Stu Sternberg Spending

While Malcolm Glazer may not be in the best of health (he hasn't been seen in public in years), Manchester United is claiming rumors about its owner's stroke are just that: rumors.

The Glazer family, who years ago could have topped the list of "Best Jewish Owners in Sports," did not crack the Top-10 this year, according to The Rays' Stu Sternberg, however, was ranked No. 3. Take it all with a grain of salt, however, since the Patriots' Robert Kraft came in just 10th while the Redskins' Dan Snyder was No. 1?!?

Speaking of Sternberg, he deserves props for making a long-term committment to the Tampa Bay the form of academic scholarships. It may be a long time before he helps build a new stadium here (or he may not), but at least he'll be building something significant soon: scholars.

Finally, for those of you hoping Hillsborough County moves forward with the proposed port-for-Rays swap, don't hold your breath. The topic was shot down at a recent board meeting before it could even be brought up, and many "in-the-know" players in Tampa Bay say the idea is nothing more than a pipe dream. But it is a pleasant dream....
