Frank McCourt and the Demise of the Dodgers - The Daily Beast / Buzz Bissinger


excerpt ..
It is a good guess as well that McCourt has already hired an entire law firm to sue Selig. But baseball can and should steam ahead. There is precedent for the commissioner to force an owner out of baseball if he is killing the franchise. All Dodger Blue does now is bleed the red of humiliation and shame because of Frank McCourt.

Class has become crass. Tradition has been trashed. The time has come to tell this asshole to find himself another parking lot.

Facing Death, CNN Sports Legend Embraces Life - CNN.com

Like most sports fans, I watched Nick Charles and Fred Hickman on CNN in the 80's and 90's.
They were informative, personal, and a great pairing. They were definitely the best.

I worked the PGA Championship in the 90's and early 2000's for TBS/TNT [with Ernie Johnson Jr. and Bobby Clampett]. 2 wonderful, kind gentlemen.
It was a privelege meeting and working with Fred Hickman at the PGA Champ 2000 at Valhalla / Louisville Ky.
He and Bobby Clampett were doing the CNN/SI Show from the PGA Champ.
Never forget .. The show started about 9p and a player was still practicing, hitting balls in the dark, to a green that was lit [as a backdrop] for the show. It was Tiger .. he won 2 days later.

Fred Hickman was very gracious and 1st class.
Never had the privelege of meeting Nick Charles.

Wayne Drash paints an incredible picture of Nick Charles' life.
A very inspiring and moving article about CNN's 1st Sports anchor and his
courageous battle to live and his eternal love for his 5-year old daughter, Giovanna.
You can even see video clips of Nick leaving touching messages to his daughter for her future birthdays.

Nick Charles must be a wonderful, unselfish man.  A sports legend who found real joy in life and is leaving an inspiring legacy that is impacting many, many lives .. for many years to come. A Score That Will Last Forever. No Doubt.
