Chris Hansen Caught In Arena Scandal  

S.O.S: Chris, have a seat behind this hedge. Chris Hansen, weíve been following your activities and it appears you and your hedge fund has been targeting this very young stock.  She may not even be out of puberty.
CH: This is ridiculous. I was just feeling her upÖ I mean out. We were just exploringÖ I meanÖ


S.O.S: Do you mind looking at the cameras, Chris? We have your computer records. Actually, Chris, weíre here to talk about more serious allegations. You know that basketball team in Sacramento you were trying to buy and move to Seattle?
CH:   The Kings, of course. I offered $ 625 million for them.


S.O.S:  After your offer was nixed by the league, it appears you made a donation to a group rallying against the proposed new arena in Sacramento. Can I offer you a Mento? My daughter once cornered her grade school market on Mentos. Youíd be proud. People in California say you broke some laws. They say you funneled a donation to scuttle their arena project through the law firm of Loeb and Loeb.
CH: Well, yeahÖ but have you seen the ears on those guys?


S.O.S:  The Loeb brothers? I havenít but I heard they had rather longÖ erÖ whatever. Anyway, according to the Sacramento Bee, you made a $ 100,000 contribution to STOP, Sacramento Taxpayers Opposed to Pork. We get it, Chris. Youíre a bunch of Seattle vegetarians. 
CH: I shouldnít have done that. We know Sacramento is trying to replace their Sleep Train Arena.


S.O.S:  Sleep Train? We heard that arena used to get loud. You canít get loud in a Sleep Train. If they build a new arena, they need to give it a name worthy of rock out loudness, right, Chris?
CH: Iím hoping they donít build and then they come to Seattle.


S.O.S: No, Chris, sit down again. We told you we had records. Hey, the cameraís over here. Chris, there are those who say youíve been meddling in another cityís affairs.  Youíve been trying to get in Sacramentoís pants, havenít you Chris?
CH: I resent that. Iím a little touchy-feely, okay. Iím a cuddler, is that so wrong? I got carried away but I would never try to rape Sacramento. Iím not a predator. Iím a hedge fund operator.

S.O.S: If Sacramento taxpayers are willing to subsidize a new arena to the tune of $ 258 million, who are you to say they shouldnít be able?  Why did you try to stop their project?
C.H:  Because Oklahoma City stole our basketball team. Seattle had a chance to vote for a new arena and didnít and then those oil moguls just moved our team away.  I figured if the Sacramento voters didnít get behind a new home, we could swipe it from them. As a good hedge fund trader, I was leveraging our position.


S.O.S: So thatís what the STOP partition and Loeb boys deal was about, you want to copycat Bennett and make sure the locals donít secure their team? Sounds like youíre trying to adopt tactics of someone you claim not to admire.
C.H: Iím just a young billionaire. Steve Ballmer and I were willing to pay the Maloofs more than that Silicon Valley newbie. We looked at the oilmen from their little city with no mountains and realized maybe they werenít as dumb as we thought they were. Oh, wait a moment. Iíve said too much, havenít I? I need to STOP talking.  Turn off the cameras. Please.
