San Francisco Giants fans are making sure the Los Angeles Dodgers remember who won the World Series. The Giants play the Dodgers on Opening Day, March 31, and fans have started a collection to raise money to fly a “2010 Champs” banner over Dodgers stadium, Chavez Ravine. The campaign goal is to raise $8,000, and already more than half the money has been raised. The banner will read: “Giants 2010 Champs: Beat LA.” The group calls themselves the Faithful Supporters of the World Champions San Francisco Giants. The official website states: “It is a great way to pay tribute to the World Champion San Francisco Giants while giving the other organization a taste of what it’s like to be World Champions: something they haven’t tasted since 1988.”
LA Dodgers owners Frank and Jamie McCourt filed for divorce in 2009 and have been battling over ownership of the team since. Yesterday, in a court hearing, the coupled failed to agree on a property settlement. An LA Superior Court judge gave the McCourts until yesterday to accept a settlement proposal.
While Frank McCourt agreed to the proposal, Jamie McCourt did not. The case now goes to a new judge Scott Gordon, who will decide the fate of the Dodgers next month.
Jamie McCourt was fired by her estranged husband as CEO of the team last October. Frank McCourt argues that his ex-wife gave away ownership of the Dodgers when she signed a division of property agreement during their marriage.
LA Dodgers owners Jamie and Frank McCourt are going through a nasty divorce, in which Jamie was fired as Dodgers CEO. Now Jamie is fighting back claiming her soon-to-be ex-husband altered documents to take away Jamie’s ownership of the team. Frank McCourt is a successful real estate agent out of Boston. In 2002, Frank attempted to buy the Boston Red Sox but was unsuccessful.
The couple bought the team in 2004 and are now hashing out ownership in divorce courts.
The Hills were alive at Dodger’s Stadium when reality-TV star Kristin Cavallari threw out the first pitch at their game before the Giants on Tuesday.
Like Kristin’s career, the Dodger’s are plummeting in the NL West, 6 games back from the San Diego Padres. I thought Kristin was suppose to be in London anyway?
