If You Let Me Play

Cuba has reapplied to the US Treasury Department to take part in the World Baseball Classic this Spring. Although they were vague in their reasoning, the US denied the first application because Cuba would receive money in the tournament, thereby violating US regulations. Cuba has responded by saying they will donate any money received to New Orleans residents displaced by Hurricane Katrina.

So with this olive branch being extended to the US government, how will they respond? Will they accept the offering, or will they grab the branch and jab it repeatedly into the eyes of every member of the Cuban Baseball Federation? Given their track record, I'm betting on the latter.
