“I really enjoyed your guide and especially enjoyed the section at the end. I agree it
would be cool to see a qualifying tournament for the European spots (in the next WBC). Not just those spots but also
throw China and South Africa in there as well; also Nicaragua and Colombia. I also like your idea of having a European
all-star team compete – that would be very cool. Enjoyed reading it.” – Geoff, Airdrie, Alberta, Canada
