Reflections of Comrade Fidel

On Monday, ESPN Senior Writer Wright Thompson talked a little bit about the new technologies influencing sports media, including blogging. I was going to include more of our conversation until I came across this -- apparently Cuban leader Fidel Castro is blogging about the World Baseball Classic. There really isn't anything deep or revealing about his writing, but it is a good example of the interactivity and audience participation of today's sports media. (No words yet from Fidel on perhaps the most stunning sports upset in quite some time--the Netherlands WBC elimination of the Dominican Republic).

Fidel's blog got me to thinking about what other sports world leaders might blog about ... which led me to this ... and if you're a Texas Longhorns fan a funnier version here.
