I’ve enjoyed watching the World Baseball Classic so far. The enthusiasm these players have for playing for their country is fun to watch, and it’s interesting to see how baseball fans from other countries watch their games. Americans tend to quietly sit and visit with their friends, and will cheer when something exciting happens.

Fans from other countries, especially the Latin countries, are into the game start to finish. The stand making noise constantly, dancing, banging on drums, playing trumpets. It’s not the stoic, thinking man’s game that we think about in America. It is really fun to watch.

Team USA, however, is not so fun to watch. Dontrell Willis has looked awful in the 2 US losses. I can understand losing to Japan or Dominican Republic, but to Canada and Korea? Brutal!
