My favorite moment from this weekend happened Saturday night during 1 of the semi-final games. Tom and I were making our way down to the field, when a little girl, named Grace, approached us.

In just 3 days Championship Week begins!!! We still haven't heard from Portugal, but we are expecting former Commissioner Cat to be on hand for opening ceremonies. I'm told he does have a bit of an accent now, but I'm sure we'll all be able to understand him.
I'm told that a number of you had the wrong dates for this year's festivities. I find that hard to believe. Your official site here at stoopball.ning.com has had it posted since the end of…Continue

Fourteen days till Pizza and Pasta with Craig!!!!! Calendars are in and looking good. Dick Hahn WILL NOT attend this years Championships! We will all be a little less happy regarding this... he would only say that Tom knew why and he did have an excuse!
Craig will be taking the League to the People this coming week, as he visits the Janesville Optimists and spreads our message of sharing and fun!.
I'm going back out to the complex now…Continue
