Red Sox Blog, but other Boston Sports Welcome!
On the other hand, all tournaments with classic in their titles had a start somewhere, sometime. The GYS Classic Network...does that work? Sounds more like a TV network.Some things are better just the way they are. I'm getting a little off the subject matter, but that's where all the fun is.
This came up a while back as well. Why not just call it the World Cup of Baseball? A much better name, and avoids the stupid "classic". Maybe FIFA complained?
Peter - I hear what you are saying, but since this thing is so fragile in getting started and who knows how many years it will run, I think classic is a bit presumptuous. somehting tellw me we may all be sitting around like 20 years from now saying "remember that time the players got together from around the world...."
I think it stinks that the U.S. government is so petty that it won't let Cuba compete. Why let politics get in the way of seeing some excellent baseball talent? Go Dominican!
Another IDIOTIC move by Bush and company. What a putz!
