I was happy and amused to see this today:
Selig gave money to support a new faculty position in United States history focusing on the relationship between sports and society from 1900 to the present.
A couple objectives I would like to see specified in the endowment:
1. An understanding that baseball is the nation's past time.
2. Soccer is for Europeans and it can do nothing for the United States except drive the America-haters to Europe, where they belong.
