There’s no denying that the owners of any professional sports team genuinely loves their team. They invest in their team, they market their team, they are proud of their team and they stand behind their team even through the darkest of times.
But since I’ve only followed one CEO, one chairman, for the past 15 years, I think it’s safe to say that Philadelphia Eagles owner, Jeffrey Lurie, takes the cake.
