Mexico Goes For Two Straight

Defending champions, Team Mexico, announced its equipo for the 2nd Annual Softball game for Suzie. Hot off their 13-8 win last year, the Mexicans will field this lineup:

Michelle (Beaner) Garcia, Suzie Garcia, Mike Luiz, Mayra Rivas, Owen McCumber, Gilbert Garcia, Roberta Garcia, Robert Florey and Max Leon.

Last year's MVP, Nomar Garciaparra, now plays for the Chicago Cubs.

Reportedly, the Mexicans are pursuing several free agents of Hispanic heritage. Those include Fernando Valenzuela, Erubiel Durazo, Teddy Higuera and Mexican comedy-dynamo, Cantinflas.

Other news: Hoping to close the book on this game's most controversial event, the 2003 Suzao Cup will be awarded to Team Mexico before the start of tomorrow's game. Championship rings purchased from a vending machine outside a local taqueria will also be awarded.
