Is This The Real Fred Wilpon?
What we have unfolding before us is the sad saga of Fred Wilpon these days.
The Wilpons’ – rich beyond counting – have discovered that they are knee-deep in the Madoff case. No one will ever know if Fred knew about Bernie Madoff’s Ponzi scheme before the cops came and took him away, but just remember they were in daily contact for over 30 years and that Bernie’s son, Mark, committed suicide rather than go on with his ‘family’ and their business. Mark and Jeffie went to school together, that’s how Fred met Bernie.
I also think that Fred realized this was not “L.A.LAW” when he was summoned to various Federal and State Courthouses when the State of New York asked Mario Cuomo to assess the situation.
Note: Mario’s son Andrew is now the Governor of New York. Both Cuomos are lawyers.
I’m not going to go any further into this part of the Fred Wilpon situation but I am going to give him some suggestions.
1. Please sell the whole team to someone not named Wilpon.
2. Please send your Brooklyn Dodger artifacts to L.A. and put up Mets stuff in the ‘rotunda’.
3. Please remember that the Mets players have parents, wives and children too.
4. Count your blessings.
