OT: A Passion for Baseball

I found this article and thought I'd share it with you all. It's cool to get another perspective from a completely different culture.

Jinan, Shandong Province –  "You see," Wang Liqiang gestured through the windshield at a taxi that had cut our car off at the traffic light. "This is what I'm talking about."

Wang, an otherwise laidback Shandong native sporting a small potbelly, was working up to his argument.

"China's changing all the time," he continued. "People used to behave okay.  Now with all this development, it's chaotic all the time, and the young people have lost a sense of who they are."

He turned to me.  "Baseball will bring that sense of order back."

Baseball?
