"Men sometimes buy teams thinking ownership will attract women, says Diane Garnick, CEO of Clear Alternatives, an investment firm. However, they soon find that it primarily attracts other men and could even repel women, who assume that a sports-mad plutocrat will spend little time with them outside the ballpark."

I suppose once you get to billionaire status a fancy car just doesn't cut it any more as far as status symbols go. Still, the very idea is so nonsensical that I wonder if Ms. Garnick is exaggerating a bit.
