|Bon Jovi Shows Interest In AFL Ownership
It's his life and Jon Bon Jovi apparently wants to spend it on the sideline.
The New Jersey rocker, who performed at Super Bowl XXXVII following the Bucs' 48-21 victory, is one of several names mentioned as a possible owner for the expansion Arena Football League team in Philadelphia.
Bon Jovi reportedly is interested in buying a 50 percent stake. Former Eagles quarterback Ron Jaworski also has been mentioned.
The Sayreville, N.J., native began to research ownership when he met with former Denver Broncos quarterback John Elway on two occasions earlier this year. Elway is part owner of the Colorado Crush.
Bon Jovi recently revealed his passion for football, especially his love of the New York Giants, in an essay for Sports Illustrated.
He wrote about growing up a Giants fan, though he admitted to a brief fling with the Miami Dolphins, and how he became a fixture on the Giants sideline.
He was with the team during the 1991 Super Bowl in Tampa.
Last season, Bon Jovi took his son's Pop Warner football team to a Giants practice where they met players, including quarterback Kerry Collins and running back Tiki Barber. The kids got autographs and posed for photos.
Collins took such a liking to the group, he used his contacts at Nike to buy the team new uniforms.
