Before I picked up the book I had no idea about the spectacle the game up in beautiful Williamsport, PA, had become. The thousands of fans, the television cameras, the money and the passionate competition … the parents pushing their children to excel when they haven’t even hit high school. Euchner does a nice job picking up a lot of threads – the teams from Hawaii, the team from Japan – and giving the reader a full tapestry about the kids that compete there from so many different and varied backgrounds. Very well done.
-Hopefully a deal for Jon Lieber is going to happen sooner rather than later.
-Eagles game is tomorrow night at eight. GO BIRDS!!!!
Now the "fightens" on the other hand...
