Winners and Losers: A Look at the Success Rate of Celeb-Owned Sports Teams

Jon Bon Jovi

Team: Philadelphia Soul
Years Of Ownership: 2004-2009
Championships Won And Playoff Appearances: One championship / One playoff appearance

Bon Jovi did it right as far as celebs and sports franchises are concerned. The dude started the team, was a majority owner, and had a huge part in the naming of the Soul. If you're going in, go in, ain't no such things as half-way crooks. Speaking of crooks, JBJ promised to do a free concert for the Philly fans after his Soul won the '08 Arena Bowl, but then the league took a hiatus and JBJ reneged, well kind of. He did end up doing a show, but it was in Jersey, and it only admitted 500 fans. #pimphandstrong
