Report: Limbaugh, Checketts interested in Rams

ST. LOUIS (AP) - Published and broadcast reports say radio personality Rush Limbaugh and St. Louis Blues owner Dave Checketts are joining together in a bid to purchase the St. Louis Rams.

KMOX Radio and the St. Louis Post-Dispatch report that the Checketts group has made a bid on the Rams and would keep the team in St. Louis. An NFL spokesman declined comment to The Associated Press on Tuesday, and the Rams said in a statement that a "strategic review" continues.

In a statement to KMOX, Limbaugh confirms the bid but would not name additional partners.

Georgia Frontiere moved the Rams from Los Angeles to St. Louis in 1995. She died in January 2008 and her two children are now majority owners.
