Not The World Cup

We are in the middle of the World Baseball Classic (WBC). The organizers believe it is the baseball equivalent of the World Cup.  I can give you four reasons why it is not similar at all.

  1. Most of the best players are choosing Spring Training with their teams over representing their countries
  2. No one at work is discussing the competition. There was more chat about the last World Cup than there is about the WBC
  3. Network TV is not covering the tournament, whilst every game of the World Cup was on live US channels.
  4. The country that invented the sport believes it has a Deity given right to win the tournament, but always manages to lose in an embarrassing fashion.

Oh

Ok, that last one makes the WBC look an awful like the World Cup. 

At least England has 66.
