I Know What West Virginia Really Needs...

The Mountain State is always looking to make some money, and I have the idea to get us to the big bucks.

Okay friends we all know West Virginia is on the bottom of the totem pole when it comes to making money. I know the secret to get West Virginia to rake in the cash...

The answer is a franchise sports team. Here is what I'm thinking. We are one of the few states without a professional sports team. For example look at New York or Pittsburgh P.A. those greedy states they have all the fun with their teams. They also make a ton of money on fans like us West Virginians. What professional sports team you may ask....FOOTBALL of course. I don't know if anything else will really kick off....

Why I think is will work West Virginia has the most die hard fans I've ever seen. We are dedicated, we burn couches! To the nay sayers out there, we can do it, we all can ban together buy stock in the franchise and build it up from the ground up. We could be "living on a prayer." The stadium can be right here in Parkersburg! Just think about the tailgates people!

JIM WHARTON TELLS ME THIS WILL NEVER EVER HAPPEN. But I say, "Jim can't a girl dream!"
