Now switching gears and moving on to another hot topic here on the island... the trial of former governor Anibal Acevedo Vila, who is accussed of breaking campaign finance laws, seems to be going well in his favor. Halfway into the trial, the judge has warned prosecutors saying they have not shown enough evidence to prove the governor was guilty of any conspiracy.
Moving onto sports, it's nice to finally see something else dominate the front page of the Sunday paper besides boxing. As most baseball fanatics might already know, the World Baseball Classic is currently taking place in several different countries, including Puerto Rico! Yesterday, Panama was defeated by Puerto Rico in a shutout game, 7-0. The biggest upset was the game between the Dominican Republic and the Netherlands, who were the underdogs. The Dutch won by 1-0! As I'm one who tends to root for the underdogs, and someone very close to me is Dutch, I can't help but say "hup Holland hup!"
