Is Checketts talking to Buffett?

Jim Thomas reports in today's St. Louis Post-Dispatch that Blues' owner Dave Checketts' group of investors needs one very rich person to pony up about $255 million to make his bid to purchase the St. Louis Rams realistic.  (Link here.)  Thomas also cites NFL sources as saying that "Checketts has a line on a viable lead investor."

Just who could that investor be?  August Busch and Andy Taylor have been mentioned but was anybody else watching the Cardinals game on Fox Sports Midwest last night?  If you were, and were paying attention, you would have heard Dan McLaughlin and Al Hrabosky mention that the billionaire's billionaire, Warren Buffett, was in attendance last night.
