Bob Nutting came to my college to speak

Today Bob Nutting came to my college (the University of Mary Washington in Fredericksburg, Va)  I graduated last year from there but my roommate from last year was in the class he came to talk to and had some very interesting and funny things to say to me about it.  So last year for my Senior Seminar Class we had to write a 20 page paper and give a thirty minute presentation about a company or business.  I of course choose the Pirates.  Our teacher for the class was born and raised in Korea and didn't know a thing about baseball.  The teacher kept my paper and slide show and asked Nutting about points and questions i made in my paper.  Throughout my paper i pretty much say Nutting is a good business man but a bad baseball owner, and have many facts and stats to back all of that up.  I also say that Nutting should sell the team to Mario.  So my teacher shows all these charts about how much money Nutting had been making and not spending money on the Pirates but putting so much money into Seven Springs, he starts out by saying he can make more money from seven springs, then my roommate says well maybe if you spent more money on the Pirates and won some games you could actually get people to come to the stadium, he only responds by saying they are building from within.  Another part of my paper talks about how when he was a part owner with McClachey that he all those poor baseball decisions to happen.  My teacher not having any idea what i was talking about asks him about it and he only says he wasnt making the decisions and there was nothing he could do about it.  And when asked about selling the team to Mario he only said the team wasnt going to be sold anytime soon, but he even said "Mario Lemieux would be a great owner for the Pirates and given he has turned about the Penguins he might be able to do the same for the Pirates" .  I really wish i still was in college and would have been able to experience Nutting come and talk to my class, probably would have gotten kicked out of the class.  On a side note he was going to talk for two more classes and asked the teacher not to have my slide show or my paper available for the next two classes.  I still have no idea what Bob Nutting was doing in Fredericksburg Virginia but i thought that was pretty cool and thought i would share with all of you
