Carpetbagging Bostonian Frank McCourt likes to live large. Despite his complete lack of merit or any trace of human decency, the most recent owner of the Los Angeles Dodgers has managed to achieve superlativeness in at least one regard: very few individuals in the long and storied history of sporting douchebaggery have managed in such a short time to equal his astounding advancements in the field.
The improvident runt has brought financial ruin upon the Dodgers, universally regarded as the greatest franchise in the history of baseball, and perhaps in all of sport. Making matters worse, his actions have almost certainly precipitated the team’s takeover by Major League Baseball, casting a century-old Los Angeles tradition* into the same Losers’ Club as the likes of the Montreal Expos.
Already ignominiously linked to the now-defunct Expos through one of the worst trades in franchise history, which occurred before McCourt’s arrival on the scene, the Dodgers have now replaced them as the MLB’s poor relation. For that, among so many heinous crimes, Frank McCourt is truly Lord of the Douches.
* Our readers are no doubt familiar with the revisionist historical claims of the so-called ‘Brooklyn School.’ That these spurious allegations are commonly accepted is bad enough; we will not dignify them further here. ∞ T.
