LA’s Most Hated Man Walking In Beverly Hills

Story involving a sighting of Frank McCourt in Beverly Hills on Tuesday.

Hit The Road, Frank

Los Angeles Dodgers owner Frank McCourt provided a public glimpse into the hypocrisy of recession-era America. Long before the revelations about how Frank and Jamie McCourt had hoisted the Los Angeles Dodgers with the petard of their divorce-bound nouveau-riche arrogance—the side-by-side houses in Malibu, the use of the team to finance personal vacations, the "charity" that spent a quarter of its budget on executive compensation—we Dodger fans, like homeowners who can smell the black mold before chipping away at the bathroom plaster, sensed the rot at the organization's core.

Sklar Brothers on the McCourts

Sure some easy targets here but still, we all need a laugh and they provide some with their quick look at the McCourt trial. It's about 9-10 mins into the podcast. Special guest Jon Hamm ("Mad Men") can be heard chuckling in the background. The episode also features another appearance by "Racist Vin Scully" which isn't hilarious but still amusing once at least.

Blast from the past: Eli Broad Would Buy Dodgers if McCourt Deal Failed

Remember when Eli Broad was offering to buy the team if the McCourt deal faltered? Yup. Not sure how life would be different if that happened, not sure it would be a... Wonderful Life. But interesting to reflect back, given the revelations this week (and long before) about the McCourt ownership. "The Los Angeles Times reports that Eli Broad, a Los Angeles developer and philanthropist, has offered to buy the team for the hefty sum, mostly in cash, if the $430 million bid by Boston developer Frank McCourt falls through, according to a letter from Broad to Fox Group. McCourt has proposed financing the purchase entirely with loans. Baseball's ownership committee discussed the $430 million agreement between News Corp. and McCourt on Wednesday and will send a delegation to meet with him in Los Angeles next week." So baseball owners approved sale to far less financially solvent group, and history was made. Or would Broad have worked out?
