Mets Owner to Marry - Knicks Owner!

Mets owner Jeff Wilpon to marry Knicks owner James Dolan

Jeff Wilpon and James Dolan to Tie the Knot
 
Sons of Rich Fathers Have "So Much" in Common 
 
New YorkBREAKING STORY - Immediately after firing Willie Randolph in the middle of the night, busy New York Mets' COO Jeff Wilpon announced that he and New York Knickerbocker Chairman James Dolan were engaged to be married.
 
“We have so much in common,” said Wilpon, “it’s like he can finish my sentences.”
 
“We deserve one another,” added a beaming Dolan.
 
Hank Steinbrenner, New York Yankees co-owner, will be the couple’s best man.
 
Both the sons of rich fathers, Wilpon and Dolan have risen from virtual non-entities to the pinnacle of American sports, leading iconic franchises to new levels of respect and accomplishment. Both have also occasionally been criticized for over-bearing management styles and a baroque sense of entitlement.
 
“They each have taken a lot of hits for being over-their-heads in whatever they tackle,” said a top public relations executive who knows both men, “but they truly don’t care what others think and feel, which I think is just great.”
   
The marriage will be held in Atlantic City at Trump Taj Mahal, a hotel and casino owned by Donald Trump who, ironically, is also the progeny of a rich father.  
 
A spokesman for Wilpon said the couple will live in residences owned by their respective fathers (Fred Wilpon is a NY real estate mogul; Charles Dolan, owns Cablevision) in New York and Disneyland.

James Dolan is an icon! He played backup yukelalee for his brother Mickey with The Monkees. And you're laying smack on him? Don't do it, ain't righteous.

These guys make Hank Steinbrenner look sharp and never in my wildest dreams did I ever think anyone could do that.

Wasn't it Robbie Robertson in Somewhere Down The Lazy River who had the line "Hang the rich"?   You did, a beautiful thing.
