So mega Maverick Mark Cuban has gotten in trouble with the SEC for insider trading ala Martha Stewart.
Cuban, the owner of the Dallas Mavericks NBA franchise and a multi-Billionaire (yeah that’s a B), got a tip about a stock and he sold them immediately, saving himself about $750,000. The stock that got him in hot water was for an Internet site called mamma.com.
I immediately got a song stuck in my head as a result of hearing that tidbit and it’s not a ditty I’m enjoying. It’s Styx and their tune Renegade. You know the one I’m talking about. It starts out:
“Oh mamma I’m in fear for my life from the long arm of the law. Lawman has put an end to my running and I’m so far from my home
Oh mamma I can hear you a-crying you’re so scared and all alone
Hangman is coming down from the gallows and I don’t have very
The jig is up the news is out they’ve finally found me
The renegade who had it made retrieved for a bounty
Never more to go astray
This will be the end today of the wanted man”
Appropriate don’t you think.
Oh, and sorry. I just couldn’t stand to put the video on my blog. I really abhor Styx, but if you’re dying to hear the song now, click here.
