Default Who's going to watch the Little League World Series?

Started today and runs to the 27th. Sure is better than watching the news with all that's going on in the world. Closest team to the Charlotte area that's in the tournament is in Greenville NC.

Wife and I started watching Regionals last week. One of these years going I'm going to have to take her there, only an hour and a half or two hours from my house.

I love it! [How about the ending a couple of years ago - down a run,
2 outs, bottom of the 6th,
kid hits the ball, goes into 2nd face first slide.
After a minute - "he's Out" - not allowed face first slide, they lose the game.
What a sad way to finish the LLWS.]

I was hoping to go this year with my son (who plays travel 11U) but couldn't make it.

We should have went last year, work near Endicott, would have been pretty cool to see basically the hometown team win it in person.

smart ump - - - he made the opposing coach file a complaint before making the call. Now, the coach is the bad guy . . .

I just moved farther away from it. I think it's now like 7 exits (20 minutes) from my house. Never seen a game in my life.
