Throw a Guy in the Lake: 9/21/09


In a gesture of sportsmanship, the Warner Robins (Ga.) girls softball team gave out commemorative pins to each of the players on the Crawford (Texas) team before the final of the Little League Softball World Series. In a gesture of unsportsmanship, the Crawford team gave the Warner Robins girls a business card with hitting instructions, as well as a card that read: "Don't Mess with Texas!"

In reality, though, Warner Robins had no problem messing with Texas. It clobbered Crawford, 14-2, to win the title. So in you go, Crawford, enjoy the lake.
