Via NBC News, we learn that Frank McCourt fired Paul DePodesta:
Asked why DePodesta was let go, McCourt said, “Our high expectations were not met.”
Really, Frank? Are you sure? Will you just get around to selling the team so we can get back to having an owner who knows one fucking thing about baseball?
NBC also tells us that USC “demolishes” Washington.
Washington State never had a chance against top-ranked Southern California in Los Angeles Saturday, losing 55-13 as the Trojans ran their winning streak to 30 games.
The loss was the fifth straight for the Cougars, who fell to 3- 5 overall, and 0-5 in the Pac-10. But it was far more decisive than the other four, which came by a total of 21 points.
A homecoming crowd of 92,021 at the Los Angeles Coliseum watched the two-time defending national champion Trojans improve their record to 8-0 and 5-0 in the Pac-10.
Nice use of “demolishes,” NBC, too bad you couldn’t use “beats the everliving shit out of.”
