J-Lo And A-Rod Offer Big Bucks for New York Mets

Former Yankees star Alex Rodriguez and actress Jennifer Lopez have offered up $1.7 billion to buy the New York Mets.

A-Rod and J-Lo put together a group to bid on the National League Team, which is being sold by the Wilpon family.

The bankers handling the sale had set a Thursday deadline for interested parties to submit a bid.

A-Rod and J-Lo were both born in New York City.

The New York Post also reports that the owners of the Philadelphia 76ers and New Jersey Devils threw in a bid.

The offers will now be looked at by the Wilpons. Sources close to the family say they hope to close a deal by the fall.

If you could buy any pro sports team, what would you pick?
