Want to own a pro sports team? … Hint: get a Georgetown degree.

According to the WSJ

If you want to own a pro-sports franchise, an advanced degree from Harvard or an undergrad degree from Georgetown (plus a few hundred million dollars) is the place to start.

Five owners earned their undergraduate degrees there, including embattled Los Angeles Dodgers owner Frank McCourt and Washington’s Ted Leonsis, who owns the Wizards and Capitals.
