This is a world of action, and not for moping and droning in.
- Charles Dickens, English Novelist (1812-1870)
Frank McCourt has been offered $1.2 billion for the Los Angeles Dodgers in a bid that would get funding from Chinese government-owned investment banks, according to the contents of a letter disclosed to the Los Angeles Times.
I never imagined anything worse could happen to the Dodgers than having Frank McCourt own the team, but it turns out there actually is something worse that could happen.
I have no problem buying souveniers and grabbing promotional giveaways built by Chinese slave labor, but to imagine the Totalitarian Government of China getting its freedom-crushing, blood-stained hands on my beloved Dodgers?
No way could I support a Dodger Blue owned by Communist Reds. That’s one thing that would truly put an end to this 36-year love affair we’ve had.
