EXCLUSIVE: Frank McCourt’s Secret Notebook!

When the Dodgers sold for over 2 billion dollars last month, former owner Frank McCourt retained co-ownership of the parking lots.  He will not receive any parking revenues, but will share in the profit of any future development on the land.

Sporting Nerds has uncovered what is most likely a remarkable and exclusive glimpse into Frank McCourt’s mind when we discovered what we believe to be Frank’s tear-stained notebook in Elysian Park this week.  The notebook has a simple blue cover emblazoned with “FRANK’S TOP SECRETS” written in permanent marker across the front.

Inside, among other things, are Frank’s plans for the Dodger Stadium parking lots which he co-owns.  McCourt’s trademark scrawl is instantly recognizable in this “artists rendering”.

His design seems to merge two conflicting visions, one of large, usually smelly, things seemingly to disparage the Dodgers and their fans and another that indulges 3rd grader-esque fantasies of laser beams and bacon-wrapped hotdogs.  It is questionable why anyone would want their “home gym” next to a chicken processing plant.  Scholars believe the more positive additions were conceived before the sale, and the others in Frank’s “angry period” leading up to and following the sale.
