Haha, Obama! Huizenga Rids Himself of Dolphins

You might remember Wayne Huizenga's pre-election whining about how he wanted to sell of his remaining stake in the Miami Dolphins before our new socialist dictator can personally tax the hell out of him.

"He wants to double the capital gains tax, or almost double it. I'd rather give it to charity than to him," Huizenga said at the time.

Well, he's a man true to his word, and finalized the sale of an additional 45 percent of his stake in the team earlier today to Stephen Ross. Huizenga still retains a 5 percent stake in the Fins. No word yet on what charities he'll be donating his savings too. We hear there are some nonprofits in Sarasota that could use a hand.  [via AP]
