    Well, this is interesting. How will the general American public react? Will they lump Pedro and Marichal into the Michael Vick camp? Or, do these two get a pass because if I'm not mistaken, cock fighting is actually legal and accepted in some South American countries.

    I'm not sure where I stand or what I think.

    EDIT: Here's the AP story: http://ap.google.com/article/ALeqM5iU2LhLRqs2RjmuqwWcAFtTQgb0FgD8UL8FR83

    The fight takes place in the Coliseo de Gallos (Rooster Coliseum) in Santo Domingo, the Dominican Republic's biggest cockfighting venue. Cockfighting is legal and popular in the Dominican Republic.

    Juan Marichal? Was there a bat involved?

    Good pull, Pete. Big Pedro made a big mistake, Pedro.

    I don't think the public will give a shit about this because, as mentioned before, cockfighting is legal in South America, and roosters aren't quite as endearing as dogs.
