Frank McCourt

Dodgers fans who blog about the team took the news of Frank McCourt’s decision to sell as a chance to get creative in their jubilation.

Mike Scioscia’s Tragic Illness led with a photo of a couple frolicking on a hilltop at sunset, with the headline, “Frank McCourt Gets One More Push Out That Door.”

“The day you never thought would come? Yeah, it’s just about here,” the blog’s lead exclaimed in relief.

True Blue LA heralded the news with the 1930s-era photo “We Win!” which announced the end to Prohibition and was also used in the introduction to the TV show “Cheers.”

“My initial thoughts,” wrote blogger Eric Stephens, “jubilation, relief, closure.”

“Both Zooey Deschanel and Dodgers Are Available” announced the blog Sons of Steve Garvey, referring to the actress-singer’s announced divorce.

“No word if Zooey's heart will be auctioned off to the highest bidder, but billionaires would be well advised to have their checkbooks handy,” read the lead.

“Yes! All is going to be good soon,” proclaimed the blog Vin Scully Is My Homeboy, written by fan Roberto Baly, who says he blogs “when my baby is sleeping.” 

Dodgers Blue Heaven headlined it all with “Celebration!” and a link to Kool and the Gang’s 1970s-era hit of the same name.

"I will sleep well tonight!" crowed the blogger, below a photo of fireworks exploding in the sky.
