    I understand the peeve, but there are more constructive ways to express it.
    Seen on a bumper sticker: If only closed minds came with closed mouths.
    Some minds are like concrete--thoroughly mixed up and permanently set.

    It is fascinating how teams which dominated WBC I and WBC II fell early in this year's WBC III --- South Korea which was 12-4 previously; Cuba which was 9-5 previously; and Venezuela which was also 9-5 previously. Similarly, it is amazing how far teams reached in the tournament who were given no chance -- Netherlands, Italy, Brazil, Spain, and New Zealand.

    Has anyone heard about the revenues generated by the 2013 WBC? I think it generated about 18 million in 2009. I haven't read anything.
