"Hi Bob, this is Magic Johnson. I want to own the Dodgers and I'm looking for a few friends to help me out. Could you give me, say, $400 million to help make this happen? You can hang out with me in the owner's box once every couple of weeks. We'll have a few drinks, take a few pictures, it'll be great. Make it $600 million and you can have one Saturday a month, too. Call me back and let's talk about it, cause the team is filling up pretty fast."
The whole thing is crazy. McCourt quadrupling his money. Magic using $2b of other people's money to buy the Dodgers. Why can't any of these idiots buy the Braves?
