'Calexit,' the peaceful exit of California from the United States, creating an independent nation of 40 million, is, at the moment, quite improbable. It won't happen any time soon, no matter what Trump does.

It's creation would mostly likely weaken the US player pool initially but the Yanks could recover over time. This is true fantasy football, but when I remember how Wales came out and supported their team's run in the Euros last year, it is the stuff of dreams for this San Diegan.
