These days when people talk about the sports world colliding with the real world they are usually talking about police blotter stuff or crazy congress critters holding hearings. But today my beloved Detroit Tigers have a real world issue on their hands. As the Marxist President Hugo Chavez threatens to advance Venezuelan troops into staunch US ally Colombia it causes a serious concern in Tigerland. The starting 3rd baseman, 1st baseman, and right fielder for Detroit, All-Stars each and every one, are Venezuelans. The starting shortstop is Colombian.
All we are saying, is give peace a chance.
