McCourt To Donate Dodgers to Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation

Apr 24, 2011

"I've been a real jerk"

LOS ANGELES - Frank McCourt, owner of the Los Angeles Dodgers, will donate the team and all its assets to the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, eTrueSports has learned.  
 
According to sources close to the team, a teary McCourt addressed the remaining Dodgers' employees being paid and announced that with the help of a team of psychiatrists, he had come to realize he is a "selfish jerk." He then dropped a bombshell: the Los Angeles Dodgers were now the property of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
 
The subdued owner added he understands that he put Dodger fans, the city of Los Angeles and Major League baseball through hell because of "my big insecurities."
 
McCourt said his former wife Jamie McCourt's very public affair with her driver/assistant was "pretty darn hurtful" and caused him to go on buying sprees which resulted in the current Dodger cash flow problems.
 
"If the Gates people need me to return the big screen TVs, I'll do that too," McCourt reportedly told a blogosphere reporter.
 
"It's the 'Weasel Trifecta,'" said a former federal prosecutor who requested anonymity. "He screws Bud Selig. He screws Jamie. And he gets out from under a mountain of debt. "
 
"Paul Allen's gonna have a cow," chuckled new Dodger owner Bill Gates, about his rival/friend who owns the Seattle Mariners.
 
"And now I'm pretty sure I'll get picked to play right field."
