Rally Monkeys!

That was - without hyperbole - the most exciting Little League game I've ever seen. DJ's team started to tank early and they were down 6-0 by the third inning. They came through with a big rally in the fifth (they play only six innings) and were down 8-5 going into the bottom of the sixth. They won the game by scoring three runs with two outs. I won't regale you with the play-by-play description of the game. I'll just tell yout that I have never seen a happier, prouder bunch of kids and coaches. And parents, of course. Next game is Friday evening against the only team to beat them this season. It's going to be a tough one, but as one kid said while walking to the parking lot tonight, no matter what happens after this, we just played the best game ever.

Hooah! Good on DJ!

Love that comment about "the best game ever"Great attitude!

woohoo! there's nothing like a playoff game that goes down to the wire! good work! may all your games end as well!

omigod...cardiac kids!!!

Congrats, DJ!!!

Sounds so much like some of the AYSO soccer game playoffs I shrieked myself hoarse on when my girls played.

Rock on!

How'd DJ do?

And slightly OT, I just noted (as did almost every sports program and website) that the Rocket lost his first game of the season...

It's obviously going to be a very said day at the Catalano house tommorrow.

Buck up, Michele, you can still be cheered that Clemens still has the second best ERA for a starting pitcher, and, even better, it's a Met, Tom Glavine, who has the best ERA!

D'oh, SAD not said... Damn, a perfectly good sarcastic post ruined by not previewing.

requestins Dark Lord Steinbrenner,,,
just because Boomer needs a slap...

As they say at work, go in there next game and "Git-er-done!" =D

Congrats to DJ! Great post.

We'd all do well to emulate those kids and take joy in our successes, rather than fretting so much about past and possible future failures...

And that is what it's all about. Great post. Oh, and too bad about the rocket (not!) --- Go Cubbies!
