The INS must be having a hissy fit. Here they are working as hard as they can to make sure undesireable people don't get into the country. And what happens. Well, Puerto Rico has decieded to give citizenship (can they do that since they are all already US citizens and a terrority) to Ian Snell of the Pirates so that he can pitch for them in the WBC.
And the reason Snell is being given citizenship is because:
he has some Puerto Rican ancestry.
Isn't this getting a little ridiculous. I mean, we all know the acutal laws of the countries don't really count when it comes to giving athletes citizenship in order for someone to play for some country somewhere.
But can't we at least pretend and make an effort and come up with some somewhat, semi-legitmate, semi-reasonable excuse beyond this.
And don't all those people complaining about Obama's place of birth really seem silly now. If he had played sports, it would have never had been an issue.
