Nick's Dream Comes True

Nick's Dream Comes True

We all know Nick is a total sports fanatic, so we're so thrilled to hear he has become part owner of a baseball team. Nick bought part of the Tacoma Rainiers franchise, the Triple-A affiliate of the Seattle Mariners. Nick is now gushing about making one of his dreams and his passion come true. People reports:

"It had always been a dream of mine to be involved in team sports in general, especially on a local level in your hometown," says Lachey, a self-described "huge baseball fan (who) grew up in Cincinnati, and baseball is kind of a religion there."

A couple years ago, the Cincinnati Reds came up for sale, and "I made an attempt to become a part of the ownership," he says. "Unfortunately, it didn't work out, but it certainly reiterated my interest in having some kind of ownership involvement. So, when this opportunity came around, it felt like a great way to get involved."

Lachey, 33, also tells the magazine, "Sports is – outside of entertainment – my passion. … Clearly I'm not going to be playing for anybody in my lifetime, so to be involved on the ownership level is the next best thing." (The singer is also starting a basketball team with pal A.J. DiScala.)

Ah... we love that Nick is happy and living a life full of his dreams coming true. We bet Jessica would have never let him make this type of investment when they were married.

Everytime I see him involved with a sport it just reminds me of how sh*tty he would treat Jessica when there was a game on. Who cares! I hate sports! Now, if women made that much money running around playing with balls then I wouldn't mind it.

I think most people want him to succeed in his personal and professional life because he's humble and normal.

He wouldn't be allowed to spend money on a baseball team, but you know she'd still be buying thousand dollar bed sheets. Ugh.
