Rangers Win! Hicks Loses!
And I wondered, just briefly, last night: How does Tom Hicks celebrate? Or does he? Certainly, the U.K. courts have given him little to cheer about: Early this morning a judge told him he could not stop the sale of Liverpool FC to New England Sports Ventures, owners of the Boston Red Sox. John Henry is pleased. The judge is not, insisting that Hicks's attempt to oust the Liverpool board and replace them with his son Mack and a Hicks Holdings higher-up present "'the clearest possible breach' of corporate governance regulations." Said the judge: No appeal allowed.
