Vacation

On vacation for two and a half weeks. Have to start back sometime in early April. Will worry about that later. Watching the USA play Mexico. Do US teams no longer have heart? After watching that Korea game yesterday, seeing how bad all those guys wanted it, how bad the crowd wanted it, and now watching this, seems a bit lazy. Why isn’t Carlos Lee starting? Jones doesn’t hit right handed very well, so put A-rod at third and use both Lee and Teixeira.

Had to stop this post to watch the first base umpire, the same guy (Bob Davidson) that blew the call against Japan, blow another call. How can you miss a ball bouncing off the right field pole? This is the first time I have seen that sort of a call missed. Makes it look like the USA hired him. Taints a great tournament.

Back to the game.

M,

well, cuba keeps winning. I hope Japan beats them in the final though.

I am not a fan of Cuba, though i would like to live there (though not if i was a citizen). Old cars, Jazz, baseball. Might work for me. U been there?
