Where's my Polo Shirt?

In a croaking whisper Fidel Castro was heard to mutter what had to have been almost his last words: "Juguemos Lacrosse!" (Let's play lacrosse!). In a sort of reverse homage to Durham, NC Prosecutor Mike Nifong, Castro has decided to bring the popular US sport to his tiny Caribbean nation.

"What the hell," he babbled, as an aide wiped away a spot of drool, "if Mr. Nifong can ruin the lives of three innocent boys just like that, imagine what I could do with an entire country of hooligans who's daddies can buy them good lawyers! I might even be able to fill all the empty jail cells which have plagued me since the early eighties..."

With a trembling hand he signed into law a decree ordering the importation one million lacrosse sticks and five hundred thousand Lacoste shirts.
