LLWS- Chicago Team Stripped of US Title

Recommended Posts

It has been found out that the Chicago team that won the US championship violated rules and used ineligible players, and have been stripped of their title. The argument back from the parents is.... wait for it... "How come we were the only team investigated?" NOT "We did not violate the rules...". They do not deny they used ineligible players (CASE CLOSED), they want the kids to be able to keep their championship because they "earned it". Well while I really feel bad for those players and parents that did not know (I will give them the benefit of the doubt)... I also feel bad for all the teams they ELIMINATED, that played under the rules of the game and used only players that they were allowed to use. Imagine if you were them and this was a once in a life time group of kids playing together having a magical run to the LLWS and you lost a close game (ie Rhode Island) by a single run when if you had 1 or 2 more really good players (from another league) that could have pushed you over the top and maybe won it all. They cannot be allowed to keep the championship, it would undermine all credibility of LL and following the rules. It would make the ends justify the means. I feel bad for the kids but not the decision.

Cheating taking place in Chicago? I can hardly believe that would happen in such a great upstanding law abiding city. More of the blame everyone else society. Got to love it.

Just read another "I feel bad for..." on another site in this mess. How would you like to be the last few kids CUT from that Chicago team so they could bring in those ringers. They took away your shot at every LL ball players dream... LLWS. If they were good enough to win it maybe they could have won it fairly also. Just Sad.

And now you have that parasite Jessie Jackson appearing making sure it wasn't race related, and of course you have a prominent Chicago attorney representing the team in a lawsuit for unjust punishment. Just keep on enabling and teach these kids no accountability, great job coaches!

    • I have a couple Garmin units for my boat. I'm going to also use one for ice fishing. Got it powered up and started playing with the colors schemes I'd like to use. The only one I like so far is with a blue background. But what I found that I like better is the black background the humminbird uses. Maybe Garmin could do an update to add a black mode. Lol. 
    • How do you keep those solid whole covers from freezing over the hole?
    • The ant moat idea seems interesting.  Go to a second had store or a Goodwill type of place and see if you can find a Bundt pan.  Use that and see how things work out.  
    • Could you be a little more specific on this cocktail timing deal? Size matters! 😏  
    • I have been doing whole prime rib on a weber grill since I was 20 years old and they cost 2.99 lb at the long ago defunct Country Club Market in St. Paul. I put the coals on each side for indirect heat and add salt and pepper and garlic. For the garlic I put the fat side up and take a knife and put holes into the fat down to meat. In each hole I put a garlic clove. I don't add any pellets or wood chips for smoke. I just want to taste that beef cooked in owns fat with a few spices but go ahead and add some smoke to it if that is what you want.
    • The storm last weekend  has moved the birds into the heavy duty winter cover. We had pretty good hunting in the cattails the last couple of days. Perfect weather helped.
    • In my humblest of opinions the simpler the better for prime rib.   Take it out of the refrigerator, salt (kosher) the entire piece and let stand until it's at room temp. Stick it into your smoker/oven at 450-500 degrees until crusted (about 1 cocktail). Lower heat to 325. Have a least 3 cocktails before poking it with a thermometer. Remove once internal temp is 120. Let rest for at least 1 more cocktail Cut and serve with horseradish.
    • In the worst case, the population would have to be held at a low level for a few years, like maybe 5.      I still haven't seen much indication that prions in the dirt are an issue in actuality (as opposed to theoretically).   
    • Fire Mike Preifer now : https://www.reviewjournal.com/sports/raiders-nfl/kicking-adjustment-makes-difference-for-raiders-daniel-carlson-1546061/
    • The prions will always be in the soil, so the “clean” population will eventually contract them and we’re back to where we are now.    I love the the idea of trying to control CWD, but I don’t believe we can.
