LA Dodgers Bankruptcy, Kindly Keep Your Mess On Your Side Of The Border

I'm not going to lie and say that it pains me to see the Los Angeles Dodgers implode in a hailstorm (maelstrom?) of financial problems and Hollywood divorce saga. I know better than to wish ill will on any fans, even if they are part of the tribe responsible for this atrocity.

I wish I were big enough to avoid the schadenfreude that comes with any problems suffered by an L.A. team but that's just not a plane of Zen existence and harmony that I've achieved. Instead, I'll just bask in the fact that the Dodgers are 36-44 and nine games out of first place in the NL West while the Diamondbacks are six games over .500 and two games back despite a three-game losing streak.

Fan-friendly feelings over the Dodgers mess, however, only get you so far when that disaster has managed to cross the Colorado and invade Maricopa County and hit the poor city of Glendale with another sports-related blow.

The Dodgers and Chicago White Sox play at Glendale’s spring-training stadium Camelback Ranch Glendale, which opened in 2008 at 111th Avenue and Camelback Road. As part of the bankruptcy, the Dodgers could ask for court approval to reject certain agreements, including with Glendale, said Valley bankruptcy attorney John Hebert, of Polsinelli Shughart.

We would kindly ask you, Mr. McCourt, to keep your mess on your side of the border before we have to get serious and sick Sheriff Joe on your aliens.
