Plan for a major-league baseball operation.
1) Convince desperate city to spend more than half a billion dollars to build you a home for your baseball team.
2) Convince legions of yokels that spending a few hundred dollars watching overpaid ball-swatters somehow makes them more authentic and American.
3) Collect ticket fees.
5) Stiff the city on the rent you owe.
6) Stiff the city on sales tax by collection giant lumps up front, collecting on that TVM, then dribbling out what you owe later, game-by-game.
