MARK MY WORDS: In Milwaukee, Don Walker noted Brewers Owner Mark Attanasio "raised eyebrows on Monday when he apparently said he wouldn't rule out providing financial support to build a new arena in Milwaukee." While Attanasio did "not say how much he might be willing to provide, his potential interest would provide a shot in the arm to efforts to get an arena built." Attanasio's apparent interest in providing financial support "also leads to speculation he may be interested in investing in the Bucks." Potential investors in pro sports franchises are "routinely asked to sign confidentiality agreements," which could "explain Attanasio's reluctance to say anything further about his possible interest in investing in a new arena or the Bucks, or both" (JSONLINE.com, 4/1).
