Though he’s widely know for his anti-liberal commentary, Limbaugh has worked in the world of sports before. He worked for the Kansas City Royals and was analyst for ESPN’s NFL pregame show, but his ‘racist’ comments about Donovan McNabb ended his tenure there.
Checketts has extensive experience in professional sports, he was the GM of the Utah Jazz at the age of 28 in 1984 and is the current owner of the St. Louis Blues.
