Funny how Licey fans jump onto the bandwagon. True Aguilas fans do not switch teams never! You guys are not true fans.

It was a great series... too bad my Aguilas lost.

My respect to the Escogido, let's support them now in the Caribbean World Series being hosted in Santo Domingo starting Thursday.

We know you could care less about baseball, but respect those that do care.

I could care less about Rugby and maybe if I learned its rules and was exposed to it, it would grow on me, especially since I am a Sports Fan in general. Maybe if you gave baseball a chance and thought more beyond a guy throwing a ball and another swinging it with a stick (oh look at that! it sounds like Cricket which is popular in non-baseball playing countries.. actually played in the streets of DR, commonly known as "La Plaquita") then you could will probably notice that the sport is much more than a ball and a stick, and that there is a lot that goes on, especially in thought processes.

I do not have a problem with baseball - It looks like fun and I'd probably enjoy playing it. I don't have a problem with most sports - it is good social fun, good exercise, and improves coordination.

However I have no interest in watching any sport. If more people played instead of watching, imagine what better world we would have.
