Good News

Salvador Cabañas has been released from the hospital. From what everyone is saying, he has a reasonable chance to play in South Africa in June. The journey from death's door to World Cup success, with a bullet lodged in his head no less, would make for a cool (though quite likely quickly overblown) story if Paraguay makes a run of any kind. It would also be a no-brainer for a cheesy sports movie, if Paraguay registered with Hollywood film-makers at all.

Update: Based on this article, where his doctor says a full recovery could take years, a World Cup appearence seems much less likely. In any event, Gancho wishes Cabañas a as-speedy-as-is-humanly-possible recovery.
