Very true, Chip (I didn't word it correctly!). But I take it as a "threat"... not a nasty one, but a threat all the same. And why? Because they do not see the BIGGER picture. I am all about "forgive and forget", but not while Castro is still the dictator. Let another city/country host some games in P.R.'s place. I am sure the local economies will be better off for it and San Juan would lose that extra revenue.
All the same... politics and sports is a bad mix. It is too bad when young-and-gifted athletes suffer for it. I support the Cuban ban, but I do not like it when these things happen.
Small market fan... always hoping, but never expecting.
