Magically Delicious

Dodger fans, meet your new owners:

Earvin "Magic" Johnson

Mark R. Walter, controlling partner
Peter Guber, partner
Stan Kasten, partner
Bobby Patton, partner
Todd Boehly, partner

It's hard to believe Frank McCourt didn't screw Dodger fans over one last time on his way out the door, so I'm still wrapping my head around one of Los Angeles' most beloved sporting figures owning one of Los Angeles' most beloved sports teams. Sure, there are technicalities and the fates of the parking lots (Star Wars title?) to iron out, but let's enjoy this post-announcement honeymoon period while we can. Oh, and get ready for every conceivable Magic-related pun (which already makes the sale worth it, because nothing rhymes with Kroenke).

So I'm supposed to see my doctor if this lasts longer than 4 hours, right?

I found a pic of Patton.

I hear he gives great pre-game speeches.

I hope he wears the uniform to games.
