Crushed Optimists

We are twin brothers who grew up in Central Washington. This blog is devoted to the life of Seattle sports fans, as well as various other topics that we will espouse for your enjoyment. We could be called another OFFICIAL SEATTLE SEAHAWKS site, but we'll take our uneducated crack at the Mariners, Sonics, and Huskies as well. A Seattle Sports Blog? Must be the land... of crushed optimism!

A-Rod pisses off everyone else...

Well, it was only a matter of time before Alex Rodriguez managed to irritate the rest of America. This time it's his declaration that he will play for the Dominican Republic next year in the new World Classic. That is utterly ridiculous. Alex was a) born in the US, b) raised in the US, c) lives in the US. There is NO tie to the DR outside of his parents. To say he'll be a proud flag-waving supporter of the DR feels like yet another cheap A-Rod ploy.

At least I'll cheer more for the US.

I guess the part about growing up, and playing in Florida escaped him.

I feel like a lot escapes A-Rod...

it's not like John Van Benschoten is jumping on the Dutch squad or Quinton McCracken is playing for Scotland either.
