So What happens when Cuba plays the USA in the WBC final
in San Diego of all places


Does Fidel get to come to the game?

Does Bush throw out the first pitch?

Bush being ah uge Baseball fan and all it would be a grand gesture as a lame duck to thaw the relationship a bit. I doubt it would ever happen but it would be a pretty smart thing to do politically. The only people he would hack off is the Cubans in Miami and since Jeb is not running for Prez the damage would be pretty light.

small step towards Detente with someone...anyone would probably do him well.

1. Unless they are absolutely sure the US will win...
I don't think you will see bush throw the first pitch.

I haven''t seen the Cubans, yet, but if history is any gauge, bush won't be there. The Cubans play all year and will probably take this thing.

It eould be overtly political.
