Cuba Hurdler Breaks World Record; Sets Up Communist Catfight

I’m sitting at O’Hare Airport, waiting to head out to Las Vegas for the Judo and Wrestling Trials. Before I board, I had to point out some an exciting development in the 110 m hurdles. Cuba’s Dayton Robles won the 110 at the Golden Spike Invitational in 12.87, besting China’s Liu Xiang by one one thousandth of a second. This sets up one hell of a race in Beijing. Both athletes will have the hopes of their respective nations on their shoulders. They will also be charged with proving who has the better Communism. China may have more than a billion people, an official cheer, and a healthy trade relationship with the United States, but Cuba has some damn good cigars. Hmmm. So close. I will wait until the 110 hurdles in Beijing to decide which one truly would make Lenin smile.
