So, Will Ferrell Bought a Soccer Team

As one does.

When regular dudes are faced with a mid-life or a career crisis, they buy expensive cars or date much younger women. When a former box office superstar is stuck in a surprisingly persistent professional slump, he buys a soccer team. Because he can.

Will Ferrell (Kicking and Screaming, Anchorman) is the proud new (partial) owner of the Los Angeles Football Club (LAFC), which is slated to become part of Major League Soccer (MLS) in 2018.

Ferrell made the announcement in a press conference Thursday, where was introduced by U.S. soccer star Mia Hamm, also a part owner of LAFC.

Ferrell joins a rarefied group of 26 stake owners, who reportedly have a combined net worth of over $4.5 billion. Nice work if you can buy it.
