The Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Manchester United owner Malcolm Glazer died Wednesday at the age of 85. Per ESPN:
quote:

Glazer had been in poor health in recent years and his sons Joel, Bryan and Ed had taken over the day-to-day operations of the Bucs. Glazer had a pair of strokes in April 2006, leaving him with impaired speech and limited mobility in his right arm and leg.

"Malcolm Glazer was the guiding force behind the building of a Super Bowl-champion organization. His dedication to the community was evident in all he did, including his leadership in bringing Super Bowls to Tampa Bay," NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said in a statement. "Malcolm's commitment to the Bucs, the NFL and the people of the Tampa Bay region are the hallmarks of his legacy. Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife, Linda, their six children and the entire Glazer family."
Since Glazer bought the Buccaneers in 1995, the team went to the playoffs seven times and won the Super Bowl in the 2002 season.

With Glazer as owner of Manchester United, the club won five Premier League titles (2007, 2008, 2009, 2011, 2013) and also captured the Champions League title in 2008.
