You just never know how a national election is going to affect you, unless, of course, you had sort of planned it out.
You know, like Frank and Jamie McCourt.
Thatís right, those wily former owners of the Dodgers knew how to look ahead. Now you could argue how good they were at it, but they did look ahead. And it should be noted, the team was sold for a still hard to believe $2.15 billion.
But back at the end of 2005, the McCourts had an opening in their front office. This is like saying they spent a little money on their hairstyles.
And to fill the position of chief marketing officer, they tabbed ... Tagg Romney.
you've got to be kidding me. No wonder the whole thing went down the toilet.
