A Friend of Unfair Park wants to make sure we know that Ellis Short -- co-founder of Dallas-based Lone Star Funds, and a bigwig at locally based asset management company Kitano Capital -- is no longer partial owner of the Premier League's Sunderland club (otherwise known as The Black Cats). Nope -- as of today, he owns the whole dang thing. Which means Short now owns a soccer team and the castle where Madonna got hitched to Guy Ritchie and where Ashley Judd married Dario Franchitti. Tom Hicks, you've been scoreboarded.
