McCourt thanks his lucky stars for Tiger Woods

Mar 24, 2010, 1:07 AM EDT

The drama and nastiness surrounding his split with wife Jamie has been very hard on Dodgers owner Frank McCourt. But he took the time to tell USA Today that he was very grateful for one thing: Tiger Woods:

“It’s tough. I’m not going to lie to you,” he says. “It’s a very, very sad thing. Nobody wants to go through this privately, never mind publicly.

“But in L.A., so much of it is about drama. L.A. is so much about personalities. It’s just how the city functions. This is a juicy story for people until it’s not juicy anymore. Then, they move on to somebody else’s story.

“Tiger Woods was fantastic for me.”

The  McCourt’s are hurling accusations of infidelity at each other as they battle over money, ownership of the team, and who has been the meanest to the other. But what’s important is that Tiger Woods came along to distract everyone with an even more salacious scandal. That way Dodger fans can smile as their franchise is ruined saying “hey, at least our owner isn’t Tiger.”

    If you think that’s something, wait until Jamie McCourt comes out with the revelation that “Tiger Woods was fantastic for me, too.”

    Well what about Jessy James? I don’t here people stiring up this. Love to kill a black man, but it’s ok for a white man. I bet if you dig like you did Tiger you would find a lot more. America is still sad. Just like how yall do your President Obama. Go Obama!!!!!

    Can we stop withe the racial garbage already? Have a few names for you; John Edwards, Elliott Spitzer, Bill Clinton. Sex scandals really don’t care what color you are–just whether you’re famous or doing somebody who’s famous.

    I doubt Eric is black. He’s trying to sound like blacks guys sound in the movies, a dead giveaway.

    Ah, I see McCourt’s strategy: he’s going to claim that Tiger did Jamie too. He’s probably right.
