DALLAS – Amid financial difficulties, the annual St. Patrick Day parade on Greenville Ave. in Dallas had been cancelled.
Until Mavs owner Mark Cuban stepped in to save the day.
Parade officials contacted Cuban about helping them out of their financial crunch and foot the bill to make the parade happen. Cuban was more than happy to oblige.
“I just thought it was fair that more people should be able to kill as many brain cells on Greenville Avenue as I have in my life,’’ Cuban said. “I passed out in many of booths there.
“I said if I have lost enough brain cells there everybody will get that opportunity, too.’’
Cuban said parade officials will allow him to promote one of his companies, filesanywhere.com. He also said those same officials told him not to discuss how much money he contributed to save the parade.
