Do you believe in windmills?....YES!

Do you believe in windmills?....YES!

OK, I realize almost all of these guys are about as Dutch as I am, but if you missed Saturday's stunning upset by the Netherlands over the mighty Dominican Republic (and I'm thinking that you probably did...), them you missed something that would have once seemed an oxymoron, some riveting March baseball. I'm waiting for the Disney movie, which will probably be called "Dutch Treat" or "Tilting at Windmills." The thing is, do you have any idea how hard it is to play baseball in wooden shoes?

Meanwhile, Team USA is looking like last year's men's basketball team in Beijing -- i.e., remembering that we invented the sport (more or less). And the Phillies' "no worries" spring training is making things look a little too easy going into the real baseball season.
