:luv: I absolutely love baseball. :luv:

I 'watched' my first game today and it was awesome!

I don't really get how it works but it is just the best game I have seen in a long time. Not sure if we have pro-leagues in my country but I'm sure the US would be way better anyway.

*Sigh* So good.

I don't know about girls but baseball for me was something I could barely wait to get old enough to play. There was something magical about your first catch in a game, first at bat and the motherlode...getting your first hit.

My son won his Little League baseball Championship!! He was on the White Sox, (although we are Cubs fans!!) :)

My son is the little one on the far right, (the only one with a belt on), oh and no hat (par for the course, he forgot it, had to borrow one for the game..ugh!!)

WTG :appl: on winning the championship.

Having said that let's discuss the team name. White Sox? Uh...well the coaches are wearing white socks.

cool stitchy, you never know your son could be the next A-Rod (just keep him away from the likes of Madonna:P)

Baseball isn't really big here but the Australian national team away does pretty good in some of the international tournament.

I've watched quite a bit of the MBL since I got cable and it's really enjoyable.

One of the things on my to do list when I one day get to the States is to go to a game and have a hot dog and one of those ridiculously over sized beers:)

Hey, thanks everyone!! Shooter, you changed your Avatar!! nice! Are you watching WGN on cable?? I went to Belize a long time ago, and the only US station they got was Chicago's WGN, so they were Chicago fans, at the time it was basketball season, so they were all Bulls fans. You are always welcome to come our way and go to a Cubs game with the kids and me! We'll take you and your hunny out to Wrigley Field for a Ball park hot dog and a big beer!! :)

What's number one leaper?

Alas, baseball season is over, but next year you should come to Seattle and watch the Seattle Mariners ("http://seattle.mariners.mlb.com/index.jsp?c_id=sea). We have a pitcher named Ryan Rowland~Smith who hails from Australia. Also, you can have sushi at Safeco Field, and Grounders garlic fries----YUM!!! There is also Washington wines served here, as well as beer, soda, and water. Any really loud yelling will probably be me. ;):wink:
