Quick Q&A session: how hard is it to get on the Irish baseball team?

Got a comment on a post last week that read a-little-something like this (actually, this is a direct quote)

dude im a huge baseball fan and I have a question:
1) Is it hard to make the Irish National Baseball team?? I have Irish descent and im curious.


Well, first off, I am saddened to hear that being part Irish is bringing you down!

As to the question at hand, short answer, 'Yes, however it's quite rewarding!'

Long answer? Glad you asked!

If you are just curious, and fancy trying your hand at playing for Ireland, then yes, it would be hard to make the team. If you are passionate about it, are willing to offer up body and soul and throw yourself 100% into it, then it could not only be fun, rewarding and enjoyable, but could also be a major, positive life experience. If you are into that sort of thing.

Hope that helps!

Your comment at the end reminds of that episode in The Simpsons when Granpa and Bart are going out to find the Hellfish Bonanza:

Homer:"And where do you think you're going at this hour of the night?"
Bart: "On a treasure hunt"
Homer: "Oooh, can I come?"
Granpa: "Only if you're prepared to stare danger in the face, if you're ready to push your manhood to the limit..."
Homer: "Ah forget it"!!!

And I also have a question: apart from ESPN's BBTN, are there any other good podcasts in cyberspace you're aware of?

Thanks again for a great blog

Also: on 38pitches.com, the Schill basically says he's done, which I think is expected but still a shame.
