The Sausage King of the Netherlands

Was watching the World Baseball Classic last night, Puerto Rico vs. the Netherlands, when lo and behold, Randall Simon strolled to the plate for the Netherlands.

Weird. I didn't know he was from the Netherlands. Turns out, he's not. He's from Curacao, one of five islands in the Netherlands Antilles (a.k.a. the West Indies), so he's eligible to play for the Dutch.

Interesting. But I must admit that every time I see Randall Simon or hear his name, all I can think of is the Sausage Race incident of 2003.
