i think a great example is that of a speed boat. they cost a fortune to maintain and use. i know of a guy who spends over $15,000 in the summer on gas and other stowage charges just to run his high performance speed boat.

he bought it for the fun and sucks up the costs as part of the process. now dont get me wrong, the owners in the NHL have a right to earn money, but for most of them its part of a larger business strategy (hello PHI, NYR, STL, DAL, PHX, OTT as a few examples)
