    Default New Owner in Norwich

    After losing over $2 billion as owner of IHOF's Miami Sharks, landshark44 has decided to run another fake football team. Following the departure of Lonnie, the eccentric billionaire purchased the Quagmire and is reportedly very excited at the prospect of losing even more money.

    The new owner, 44 yrs old, is married with two boys that both play sports, aged 14 and 10. He coaches soccer in his spare time, and likes to drink Johnnie Walker Black when preparing his exports.

    landshark44 teams have had modest success on the field. His Florida Hurricanes of the USFL, are two-time league champions, and have made more playoff appearances than any other franchise. In IHOF, the Sharks have had two consecutive winning seasons after years of being bottom feeders.

    The new owner has announced a rebranding of the franchise. Long known as the Norwich Quagmire, the team will be moved to landshark44s' home town of Brigantine, NJ. Brigantine is a beach town just outside of Atlantic City, that is known for (among other nicer things) a certain species of fly- Greenhead, that relentlessly attacks tourists every summer. With the help of the Cuervo Marketing firm, the team will now be known as the Brigantine Greenheads.

    landshark44 will look to build upon the efforts of Lonnie, who has assembled some good young talent in the past few drafts.

    I live right across the street from where the castle used to be. Giant haunted house built on a pier in the ocean. They hired actors from a local college to scare people that went inside. The Rat Room was scary.....

    Started losing money, so the owner burned it up good. I still have memories of the thing burning on the ocean....

    My mind is addled at this point. The only 'local' TV I remember at all was Wonderama (and loads of ads for who sides of beef).
