With local and national media hopping on the Dodgers' bad news bandwagon, it's refreshing to see a prominent sportswriter take the time to enumerate the good things about the Dodgers franchise. From "Bankrupt Dodgers have several assets that money can't buy" by Steve Rushin at SI.com:
1. The Dodgers' home uniforms, which are unnaturally white, the white of Chlorox-commercial bed sheets. Against that white, the red numbers on the left rib cage pop like lipstick on a starched collar, as former first baseman Steve Garvey might put it. The script "Dodgers" across the chest is divine, as if God signed it with a blue Sharpie. Yes, the cash-poor Dodgers are metaphorically wearing a barrel, but they can take solace in literally wearing -- with apologies to the Canadiens, Yankees and 1963 Chargers -- the most beautiful uniforms in sports.
Can I get an amen! There are six additional items on Rushin's list, all worthy of praise. Thanks, Steve!
