Ireland to buy Red Sox?

That's the tongue in cheek suggestion of NY Times writer Floyd Norris in light of Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra's attempt to buy Liverpool FC shares with Thailanders' (Thailandeese - what do we call people from Thailand?) tax money.

Norris also suggests that the American government might want to buy Arsenal FC, but the fact that Osama bin Laden is a big fan might be a turn-off. Norris obviously doesn't realize that Arsenal banned bin Laden from Highbury in late 2001.
