I haven’t decided yet what to make of this odd pairing. Rodman is the last person I’d look towards as a diplomat. But Kim seems to like him. No other American has gotten an audience with a North Korean leader in decades. Isn’t the most minuscule thaw in relations better than nothing? At least Kim will have briefly met the great enemy his country hates so much.
I kind of hope Rodman pulls this game off. It’s not going to change anything but it is a beginning. If the game in January goes well then theres another one planned in June.
I have no idea where this will go. But don’t we have to at least try and get a foot in the door?
I like Rodman’s idea of a mixed team. It wouldn’t be a good idea for Americans to beat the North Koreans in the first game. That could result in executions for the N Korean players.
