I have a question about baseball:



Can other countries go into this apparant "world series" or is it one of those "only americans can get into this but we'll call it world series because it makes us feel like we're the best".




Teams from around the world play in this.



And about the "makes us feel like we're the best" thing, When the world series was established, only Americans were playing baseball. I agree that we aren't the only ones now, but we aren't going to change over 100 years of tradition. Anyways, there IS a Canadian team in the MLB...

Portsmouth got kicked out, my home town :( Well, at least we came in second last year \<img src=/' />

You can't ever find a place that's nice and peaceful, because there isn't any. You may think there is, but once you get there, when you're not looking, somebody'll sneak up and write "(bleep) you" right under your nose. Try it sometime. I think, even, if I ever die, and they stick me in a cemetery, and I have a tombstone and all, it'll say "Holden Caulfield" on it, and then what year I was born and what year I died, and then right under that it'll say "(bleep) you."

And that Canadian team is in the AMERICAN league. :lol:

And yep, this is everyone in the world. Except the USA automatically is in the final.



Anyways, Massachusetts got eliminated. :( But Taiwan is pwning Mexico right now. :<img src=:' />

Got me with the American League thing. #-o



But we HAVE been trying to reach out a little bit. We've had some games in Japan, and I believe some in the UK. :-k Correct me if I'm wrong.



But I don't see teams from different countries lining up at Bud Selig's office trying to join....

Adding international teams to the MLB or the World Series would ruin tradition. Even though it would finally be an actual World Series, still, I wouldn't like it one bit.

Anyways, there's now a World Baseball Classic. Pretty much the World Cup of baseball, except on a smaller scale. I wish they did it more often...And maybe even make it a bigger tournament...

Anyways, Taiwan won today, and I believe that automatically gets them into the semifinals. They have to play either Japan or Curacao, and bother are very good teams. It'll be one nice game to watch.

Taiwan's playing Japan in a few hours. This will be a heck of a game...I'd say that they're somewhat rivals.

Anyways, speaking of rivals, it's sort of a mini version of Red Sox/Yankees. Dice-K, of the Sox, is from Japan, while Chien-Ming Wang, of the Yankees, is from Taiwan.

Should be nice, hope Taiwan wins.

And now that we're in the quarterfinals, let's make picks on who'll win the whole thing. Even though I don't like it, I think Japan is going to win.



EDIT:

Taiwan got a nice 2-0 lead in the first...Gave it up in the fourth...But just scored again on a play at the plate. \<img src=/' />



Second Edit:

I was too busy watching the game to edit this for each run...But not like that would've been often.

What. A. Game. Tremendous pitching from both teams, and fatigue got Taiwan in the end. Oh well, I learned from the Red Sox. There's always next year. :<img src=:' />
