Moment of Levity: The Big Picture
WAIT A MINUTE! THIS MAN IS NOT SOUTH AFRICAN!
We might have believed Lee Smith, the South African manager, was actually South African if it weren't for his rather considerable body of work as a relief pitcher for the Cubs, Red Sox, Cardinals, etc. But you know what? He's not South African. He's Louisianan. Of course, there's nothing wrong with that, just as there's nothing wrong with Terry Collins managing the Chinese national team. But we would love to hear Smith talking to his players who actually are native South African. Louisiana and South African accents aren't exactly compatible. (Kevork Djansezian/Getty)
