I'm watching the Olympic baseball game - US vs China - on MSNBC. I think this would be the first time I've ever watched anything on MSNBC...

Seems like it was a very messed up game, which probably comes from the stupid rule of letting the host team qualify for everything, meaning that the Chinese team didn't know what the hell they were doing and even had to borrow an American manager. Of course when you don't have any control over your pitches and end up hitting 6 different batters, including plunking one guy in the head and giving him a concussion, that doesn't do a whole lot to foster international peace and harmony.

The commentators mentioned that there won't be any baseball in the next summer games, and probably not softball either. They also said that the reason the Chinese don't have a very good baseball team is because the government hasn't had a lot of interest in it. I guess that's what you get in a communist country... if the government doesn't think it's important, it isn't. Can you see the US complaining that we haven't won any medals in weightlifting because the US government hasn't had a lot of interest in it?
