In Defense of the WBC
Good morning, Reds fans.
I come to you today with a confession: I'm very excited about the World Baseball Classic. However, from my daily lurking on this website, I sense that but a scant few of you share my feelings!
If I were asked point blank to name my favorite sporting event, I think I would have a hard time saying anything but the World Cup. There's something about professionals putting aside financial loyalties to play under the banner of their home country that gets people very emotionally invested.
I suppose the primary question of this post is two-fold:
1. Why does everyone dislike the WBC so much?
2. Why does it garner so little media attention?
2012 Reds record: 5-2
I look like a banker in this...
