I do not promise that this will work because I will be relying on a sneaky wireless signal, but I am going to try to liveblog a game that is not in Pool A. South Africa vs. Cuba, 2 pm Sunday afternoon. There are two underwear models on the South African team and basically nobody on their roster actually plays baseball; I expect this will be fun. Or terrible! Or terribly good fun.
postscript: things we learned from this game:
--Norge Vera is the new El Duque
--Charley Steiner is a terrible play-by-play man
--South Africa's only functional play is the pick-off move
--Charley Steiner hates baseball and fun
--Team Cuba's trainer is Fidel Castro's son
--Pool B is the worst pool
--dude in the Panama hat with the enormous cigar is awesome and should have announced the game
--seriously fuck Charley Steiner, he is trying to ruin baseball
Thanks to ivantopumpyouup, Snuppy the Hound, and briefly ashmark for suffering, suffering so much.
This was the worst game.
