Diddy Sets Sights on Owning NFL Team

    Sean Combs is determined to own an NFL team, and fans can only hope that if he succeeds, he won't change the squad's name every couple of years.

    Combs, aka Puff daddy, Puffy, P. Diddy and Diddy, tweeted late Thursday of his desire to join Jerry Jones, Al Davis and other mega-rich sportsmen in the owner's box at a stadium in an as-yet undetermined city. No teams are currently up for sale, but Combs is worth an estimated $300 million, so he might be able to pull it off.

    "I will be the 1st black man to be majority owner of a NFL football team!!!! BELIEVE!!!!!!! All things are possible through Christ!" Combs tweeted.

    The hip hop impresario recently flirted with buying European soccer club Crystal palace, but backed off, saying "it wasn't the right business move for me at the time."

    I'm always looking into different business ventures and it's definitely one of my dreams one day to be a part of a sports franchise, especially a football team," he said.

    "If the right situation comes my way and it's appealing and we can make the right splash and most importantly build the right team and win... I'm into winning and if it's the right situation then I'm open to it."
