So we started off the morning walking to the store, the market, then making a breakfast and watching Cubs vs Sox – which was a total snooze-fest UNTIL john turned on the World Baseball Classic. OH BOY! seriously, this is the one of the only times i’ve ever appreciated the skill, talent, sportsmanship, athletic ability and actual excitement that this game has. not to mention the extremly fun time the fans are having in the stands – music, dancing– i wanna salsa!
it took watching Dominican Republic vs Cuba (and we saw another game the other day too) combined with catching a Red Sox game at Fenway in 2003, to realize that just maybe… MAYBE… there could be more to baseball that i just haven’t discovered yet — it’s worth a shot. the final on monday (winner of Korea/Japan vs winner of Domincan Rep/Cuba) be sure to catch it on sportsnet at 6pm 🙂
