Ray Kroc is classier than Bud Adams


I heard this story on the radio the other night in St Louis. Mike Evans, entertainment reporter recounted a great story about Ray Kroc during one of the Padres miserable years.

Here's the link to Mike Evans blog.

the Padres owner was McDonald’s king Ray Kroc. In the 1st inning, the Padres made 3 errors on the first 3 Dodger batters. I was sitting in the Press Box and saw Kroc get up from the owners box, walk to the P.A. announcers booth, grab the mic and over all the booing of the fans, say, I am as disgusted with this team as much as you are, and to apologize. I would like to buy everybody a free beer. Go to the concession stands now, it’s on me. You never saw 18,000 people get up and run to the concession stand so fast. Ray was all class, Bud Adams is all ass!
