New Day for the Dodgers
Last week a friend of mine from college asked me to write a piece for his new website about Magic Johnson, et al's, purchased of the DOdgers for $2 bajillion. I accepted, but what came out was more about Frank McCourt's departure than Magic's entry. Enjoy.
To say that Mr. McCourt left a sour taste in this, and most, Dodger fans’ mouths would be a gross understatement. He was a carpetbagger is the truest sense, the Boston mogul come West to poach a fledgling former champion with the sole intent of personal gain and notoriety. It’s difficult to express the full extent of my disgust with Mr. McCourt, so allow me to explain my connection with the Dodgers and what his expulsion means.
