THIRSTY FOR MORE? In Buffalo, Tim Graham noted Pabst Blue Ribbon Owner C. Dean Metropoulos, who was a "runner-up" to Shahid Khan in the Jaguars sale three years ago, will "take a look at the Bills when the team's financial advisers produce their sales book." A spokesperson for Metropoulos said, "The Metropoulos family has a continued interest in acquiring an NFL franchise and expects to review any such opportunity." Forbes estimates that Metropoulos is worth $1.3B. The family's private equity group "partnered with another company to buy Hostess out of bankruptcy" for $410M last year (BUFFALONEWS.com, 6/11).
