Bill Maher Joins New York Mets As Minority Owner

Comedian Bill Maher is a new limited parter of the New York Mets, according to CBSSports.com.

Maher bought one of the minority partnerships that the Mets started to offer in December. Those shares were reportedly $20 million -- and they included a meet-and-greet with Mr. Met, though there were no financial terms released with the Maher deal.

Maher said that he grew up a Mets and Yankees fan, though in recent years he's been known to rock the Mets hat more.

"I was so not a fan of George Steinbrenner that he turned me off to that franchise," Maher said. "I don't think he represented what New York should be."

He gives a couple more quotes in the article, but he doesn't crack wise, which is disappointing. Here are the jokes I totally would have told:

"We have to sign him. We don't want him to be known as David Left."

"And then I was all, yeah, don't let the door hit you on Reyes on your way out."

"Has anyone ever noticed that R.A. Dickey has a funny name?"

Looking for a writer, Bill? Call me. I'm around.
