First, the Yankees sent a “delegation” to China. To be expected. They are, after all, the Evil Empire:
“I think the power of the Yankee brand all over the world is what’s driving this”
Not to be outdone by their nemesis, the Red Sox wanted in on the action:
“…Larry Lucchino, who once called the Yankees the “Evil Empire,” said his franchise would like to help increase baseball’s exposure in China.“
Then came that NYT front-page Sports story about recruiting for Chinese kickers which Diana already, uh, discussed:
“Pro Football Grooms 3 Legs, With the Goal of a Billion Eyes”
And today, there’s a NEW STORY about China’s national team training with Major League Baseball:
“China’s participation as host of the 2008 Olympic Games is an enormous opportunity to increase the visibility of baseball in China,” commissioner Bud Selig said.
Well, good golly. I don’t know whether I should applaud all of you for your tacky unbridled opportunism or just barf on my computer.
