So the other day I heard a gent on the radio who called into a sports program... he wanted the World Series to start earlier, since he lived in Ireland and the games started at about one a.m.
The radio host was amazed that baseball existed in Ireland. The caller said he'd been in Boston when the Red Sox won the World Series... he was at a bar and couldn't believe the mania. Hooked ever since. He mentioned a documentary about Irish baseball called "The Emerald Diamond".
I just ordered it. I can't wait!
(Disclaimer: I am not Irish.)
