Can you believe that there are no teams from Africa and the Middle East in the tourney? Countries like India, Iran, South Africa and Cameroon play cricket very seriously and they probably would be really good at baseball since the two games are very similar. Someone get on the phone with these Continents and invite them to the Baseball World Cup … isn’t that what the “World” Cup is about???

Don't Forget the Final

Are interested in catching the final? The Baseball World Cup final is set to play on October 15th, 2011. You can catch it on TV or try to get your mom and dad to send you down to Panama for the week. The weather is nice and sunny!

Of course we can! It's true that we're a little less strong physically, but we can. "Can't" means just that, we can't. And that's wrong. It's true we have to deal with all that physical pain (I can whine about it for agesss) and mental pain too. And that some of us cry easily. But that's because we feel pain! So although we are less strong physically as I said earlier, girls can also think up ways to surprise someone in a fight. And that's a good thing to do to someone who laughs at a girl and says they cant fight.

Cheer-leading is a sport - most people think that it is not - but it is Yes it looks like they are just cheering on the football players - but their routines and being able to hold up girls over their head takes strength, and they work really hard to make everything look good.

I liked cheering for the underdog, so I've always cheered for the Cavs. I'd like to see how this year's line-up goes, though our past best point guard left for the Celtics.  :/
