>Cleveland outfielder Shin-Soo Choo (seen below holding a miniature version of himself) will potentially have to put his career on hold if he isn’t a part of a gold-medal winning South Korea team in the Asian Games.  All South Korean men must serve two years in the military by the time they are 31.  Choo is 28 and has been trying to find a way out of his military service.  One option is to lead the South Korean baseball team to a gold-medal victory at the Asian Games.  It is customary for gold-medal winning athletes to be excused from this mandatory military service.

Other options include:

  • Dressing in drag to confuse the South Koreans, making them think he is female
  • Go back in time to be a part of the 1998 or 2002 Asian Games championship teams
  • Not suck in 2008 to be a part of the Olympic team that won gold
  • Move to Canada, by being traded to the Blue Jays
  • Convert to a pitcher and learn to throw a submarine pitch
  • Send his Don Johnson look-alike bobblehead in his place – they’ll never know the difference
