Hot Dodger Blue Blooded-Checketts and Soros (Got a Fever of one hundred and four-o's)
(Yeah, so it's a stretch.)
David Checketts fund drive to buy the Dodgers is about two-thirds of the way toward his goal of $620 M. If you donate $50, you get a free Gallagher CD, and $100 gets you the entire Doo-Wop video collection.
Checketts has evidently lined up one big name as a backer in multi-billionaire George Soros. If anyone was worried about the financial well-being of the sport, the proposed investment by a investor's investor should speak volumes.
My friend Murray has a funny comment regarding Soros:
Can you picture him at the Winter Meetings? The only guy he'd have anything to talk about with would be John Henry.
Gee, another owner for Rob Neyer to genuflect in front of.
