RUSH: I want to congratulate Mr. Shahid Khan, who is 55 years old. He is the president of Flex-N-Gate Corp., an auto parts manufacturer based in Urbana, Illinois. He has lived in the United States 40-some-odd years. He is Pakistani descent, and he is the person who has been selected by the Rosenbloom family to purchase the St. Louis Rams.
I didn’t get the Dubai Ports Deal, but we do have Shahid Khan. Now, he’s gotta pass muster with the NFL owners. He’s gotta go through the vote process there, but the Rams principals (Chip Rosenbloom and his sister Lucia Rodriguez) have sold the team to Shahid Khan of Urbana, Illinois. Congratulations to him. He says he’s a big Rams fan. He goes to the Edward Jones Dome constantly and appears to want to be a pretty hands-on owner, from what we’ve been able to figure out.
