A common sight today in parks and squares of Havana, Pinar del Rio, Matanzas and other cities are children playing soccer.
Virtually everyone in the younger generations knows Messi, Cristiano, Iker, Xavi, Iniesta, Carles Pujol, and many others in the capital Real Madrid and Barca have many followers as the Industrial.
I think it’s possible to love both baseball and soccer, Industriales and Real Madrid, because love is not exclusive.
Nonetheless, I also believe that television has had much to do with a love for soccer that Cubans feel today. If you put the best soccer in the world on Cuban TV, why not also show the best of universal baseball?
