for the first time ever i am supporting america at something! i always like the underdog you see, and for once that is USA, good job on beatin portugal btw, i am sure nobody cared in america though. but for once you are playing in a proper world cup, why is the baseball world series called that if it is only america that plays in it? sounds like amercian arrogence to me :-S

lp, man we'd love to see a converted English cricket team join the National League East. If we keep importing Asian players, and the quality of Japanese teams keeps improving, we may one day have at least a part of the world compete in our baseball championship. I enjoy attending baseball games mainly because you can leisurely eat (I LOVE ballpark hotdogs, you just can't reproduce that indulgent taste at home) and drink cold beer without constantly worrying about missing the action (like soccer matches). I believe the founding fathers of baseball foresaw world interest in the sport and "optimistically" named the championship a world series.
