Baseball Bitching

The Daily Beast tells it as it is.
There is simply no way to say it with any degree of artfulness so I won’t even try:

Los Angeles Dodgers’ owner Frank McCourt is a vile piece of shit who not only ruined what was once the classiest franchise in all of sports but should also face legal consequences if allegations are true that he did reportedly not pay any taxes on $105 million he siphoned from the Dodgers’ for his own personal use.
Yeeesss! A vile piece of shit, no less. Bankrupt him, jail him & throw away the key.

Barry Bonds is a huge asshole too.

Sorry, that's all I know about sports.

My dad never forgave the Brooklyn Dodgers for leaving, and certainly not for absconding with the name.

It's for dodging subway trains!

Grind him up, and feed him to the fans via hot dogs.

Selig too.

Local Action Editor Advises:

We have contemplated purchasing a Brewers cap, as it would have our (or Michele Bachmann's) initials on it.

Forgot Bud is your man. Ever buy a car from him?

L.A. does not allow the Dodger Dog to be fucked w/: "In 1972, Farmer John (a big-time Dodgers sponsor) took over the hot dog making duties from the Morrell Meat Company. Then, in the mid 90's, they tried to switch from grilling the dogs to boiling them. The fans were irate, and this terrible new idea was quickly put to pasture."

VS is absolutely correct about Mr. Bonds, & that's all she needs to know. (P.S.: Most of our sporting interest is in sports as a sub-set of telebision. Not that everything isn't a sub-set of the tee vee.)

Trolleys, not the underground. Although this reporter has heard that "trolley dodging" was fare-avoidance by riding on the back of the trolley. A team named after criminal activity. Or glibertarianism. Too cool.

(Is your parental unit still in hospital? Maybe this will pep him up, or at least provide some dee-lish schadenfreude.)

Fuck no. His destruction of the Brewers at public expense so he could squeeze a few extra dimes from his sale is the reason I still can't be bothered to give much of a shit about our ostensible 'baseball' team.

I had a long-running feud with a fake-libertarian at my blog (who has since decided to stay away because of my 'unrelenting negative view' hah) where every season, he would claim the Brewers had a pretty good team this year, I would challenge him to a wager on their post-season prospects, he would weasel his way out of it, and they would promptly evaporate like Bristol Palin's virginity.

Anyways, the only way Selig is 'my man' is in that he will be among the first in my sights.

Also, he was a worse used car salesman than Nixon. Most of his money came from fleet leasing. Like most conservatives, probably government contracts.
