That's how ridiculous the headline in the Washington Post about the WNBA Franchise here in town reads. "Leonsis: Mystics Are Losing Money, But Franchise Will Survive."
Oh yeah, if you read the article, you will see that it's worse than you think!
"The franchise is losing money," he said. "It's lost money every year that it's been in existence, but that doesn't mean it is in dire straits.
While the Mystics continue to search for a business model that works, other WNBA teams are gaining solid footholds in their markets.NOTE: If you replace "Mystics" with "donut shop" and keep everything else the same, you would say that only somebody with a psychological disorder would look at this as a "business" and contend that it makes sense to "invest" any more in this money losing donut shop.
You want a "business model that works?"
That strategy has a 100% chance to stop your money-losing streak at 12 years in a row.
I guarantee it.
Maybe time for me to Introduce the "Baghdad Bob Award" in sports for delusionalism. If so, then Ted, congrats! You are our first ever winner!
