The Best Game Ever?
2008-04-07 21:00
by Bob Timmermann

The people behind Improv Everywhere turned a Little League game in Hermosa Beach, California into the "best game ever" for the kids, complete with NBC coverage (even if it was just Jim Gray), a JumboTron, peanut vendors, fans painting team names on their chest, and the Goodyear blimp stopping by.

You can also watch on YouTube.

As an ex-pat who's been overseas for nearly 20 years this nearly brought a tear to my eye....very effing cool.

This story warmed me up as I just experienced the opposite of this in my nine year olds Seattle little league game. (For those keeping score the TimberRattlers lost to the MuckDogs 3-2 in four innings.) We could have used jumbo space heaters and hot cocoa vendors as games aren't canceled up here unless its brutal conditions. We were just short of brutal but near brutal is still pretty bad. I miss SOCAL little league particularly when the blimp shows

Congratulations to Andrew Shimmin for winning the NCAA Tourney Contest. For the second year in a row I narrowly missed taking the prize. I'd like to extend a special thanks to Bob for having the contest. You guys have a great blog and I enjoy reading it when I can. I'm off to work on my free throws... ;-)

4- Thanks! Last year I was within spitting distance of dead last. I expect to return there, next year.
