Keith Olbermann says, “The runner up, Los Angeles Dodgers owners Frank and Jamie McCourt. Revealed today in the ” LA Times,” for five years the McCourts paid a, quote, scientist and healer to think positive thoughts about their team, and transmit them for four hours a day for more than 100,000 dollars a year, while he watched on TV from his home in Boston. Vladimir Spunt was said to be able to improve the Dodger`s chances of winning by 10 to 15 percent. It sounds hilarious until you realize Spunt told the McCourts there were disconnects between their manager and general manager, so the McCourts fired the manager, and then three weeks later they fired the general manager.”

The McCourts gave dude six figures a year for that? Oh we are so in the wrong business.
