My brother's little league team had a chance to go to the city championship today. They were tied with the 2nd place team, but did not carry the tie breaker. They both played today, and in order to advance they needed to win and the other team needed to lose.

They played at 1:00 and won their game. The other team played at 3:00 and happened to be playing the #1 seed and only undefeated team in the league. Things were looking up for Willoughby Kiwanis (my brother's team.) The undefeated team was up by 5 with 1 out in the bottom of the 6th (they only play 6 innings). Then the unthinkable happened. 3 walks, 2 errors, 3 hits, and 2 blown calls at home plate later and Kiwanis is out of the championship game.

What a load of crap. A team that is 18-0 is not supposed to blow a 5 run lead in the bottom of the 6th.
