The Philadelphia Inquirer's Frank Fitzpatrick reports that former President of the United States John F. Kennedy along with his brother, Bobby, were interested in buying the Philadelphia Eagles while Kennedy was still in office. The conversations were ongoing, including conversations inside the Oval Office in October 1962. The price of $4 million was attractive and the Kennedys were known to be "sports-junkies."
Unfortunately, a meeting between the Kennedys and Eagles management never took place due to the Cuban Missile Crisis. The Eagles would sell shortly after Kennedy's assassination in November 1963.
I think having the Kennedy family as an owner of the Eagles would've been amazing. Also, the Eagles were for sale for $4 million just two years after winning the NFL Championship in 1960. Does that seem weird to anyone else?
