Worthless Crap and Notorious Scams We'd Invest in Before Buying Ballpark Village Bonds

According to the radio station, the ball club hopes the bonds will raise at least $100 million.
What's emerging is a plan to woo well-heeled Cardinals fans with a chance to help the team and possibly make some money in the long run.Now we here at Riverfront Times are not opposed to risky investments. Hell, we once invested a $100 in a glue-factory racehorse that never returned a dime.
"We need to get creative in terms of the demand for these types of bonds," says Cardinals President Bill DeWitt III. "And if it means getting friends and family or whoever else -- and I mean that in a broad sense -- interested in these, that may help our chances."
Still, we'd wisely take our chances at the racetrack any day than gamble on the much-delayed, much-ridiculed Ballpark Village. In fact, here's a list (in no particular order) of worthless crap and notorious scams we'd invest in before coughing up one red cent for Ballpark Village.
1. Florida Swamp Land
2. Bernie Madoff's
4. Confederate Greenbacks
P.S. Try as we might we couldn't find an image of a two-dollar whore to include in this list. That is, no image that we could share on a family-friendly blog such as Daily RFT.
