Johnson Toribiong, the President of the Palau Baseball Association, has a new day job. It seems he was just elected president of the Republic of Palau, winning the election by just 216 votes. Somewhere in Hollywood, Al Gore is screaming for a recount. Now you have to wonder what's going through Bud's mind?
Congratulations to the President-elect, but I really hope he resigns the more important position and is only president of his country. Let someone else run the Baseball Association for awhile.
Because one thing we have all learned, baseball and politics don't mix. If Congress had spent less time worrying about steroids in baseball and more time worrying about, oh, say, the economy, then maybe we wouldn't be in quite the mess we're in now.
I don't know much about Palau, but I think playing baseball here would be a good thing. If they really want to hold the World Series at a neutral site, then I vote for here.
