I think not–both sport the Green and Gold and both teams are underdogs that come to play every day.  In fact, these two relatively obscure sides have delivered their fair share of championships, with the A’s the third all-time leading World Series winners, with 9, and the Bok’s with two World Cup Rugby titles under their belt, tied for the lead w/ a team not named the All Blacks.

So South Africa represents once again in World Baseball Classic.  I actually caught the team during Spring Training the first time round in 2006.  A special thanks to Alex Cox who was on hand this year to catch them  square off at Oakland’s Spring Training grounds in Mesa, AZ:

Go A’s – Go South Africa!!

      I woke up one night; I was not sweating, although I did decide it was time for me to put my creative mark on cyperspace. I previously had a useless, tired blog that pretty much stunk up the internet. But alas, no more; the day of reckoning is up on us, a new energy has bubbled from my loins, and with the bubbling will come additional useless “Juicy Morsels and Tidbits For All to Graze.”
