As a Giants fan, and as moral human beings, what should be our attitude be towards the personal difficulties of other people? Even when they're funny? And are happening to Dodger execs? Like, how should we react to the McCourt divorce filing? http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/sports_blog/2009/10/highlights-from-the-jamie-mccourt-divorce-papers.html
I mean, Jamie McCourt was a Dodger executive. And surely a 32 grand monthly clothing allowance earns some kind of WTF reaction. Or eleven K for 'personal care.' Or 400 dollars a night for dinner for two? Five days a week? And 8 hours a day exclusive use of a private swimming pool? Geez, lady, what do you do in there? Wouldn't your skin get all wrinkly? And really, what was your job with the Dodgers? For which you were paid 2 mill a year? Advance scout? Fungo bat coordinator? Matt Kemp's personal cougar?
It's all great stuff and it's FTR funny. Does that mean we can gloat? Or will our amusement over the misfortune of others lead to bad karma, possibly involving a pulled hammy for Panda, or worse, a Molina re-signing?
Hell, no, I say. I say we gloat. They're Dodgers. Anything bad that happens, they deserve.
