Macondo’s NBC affiliate is reporting today that Scrooge McLoria has a “handshake deal” to sell the Feesh to a mystery New York real estate developer (no, thank Buddha, not that one) for $1.6 billion dollars. Mierda! If I’d known they were going for that little, I’d’ve bought them myself!
Story goes that the prospective buyer has to divest himself of some of his real property holdings to meet MLB’s liquidity requirements. Please Buddha, don’t let Hair Hitler crash the economy before he is able to do so! Rumors have abounded for about a year now that the team was up for sale, either because Scrooge and the Chihuhua have become frustrated that they can’t formfit reality around their whims and win on a pittance or because they can’t seem to convince enough people to show up for the games after alienating the entire community with their unique amalgam of lies, misrepresententions, impecuniousness, crappy personnel decisions and their general buggering over of the city with their stadium deal. Whatever. This story now seems sufficently grounded in probability that the always scrupulous NBC (Nyarrk! Nyarrk! Nyarrrk!) saw fit to run it.
Come here, little feller…I want to introduce you to our local santera and maybe together we can sufficiently propitiate the Old Ones to make this all work….
