The best ballgame I saw all year long

Saw the final game of the Little League World Series this evening and I got to tell you, it's the most enjoyable game I've seen in a long long time.

The action was great. Watching those young men run around the field, bat, throw, and those wonderful pitchers -- it was all so good, so good. The joy of the game was so evident.

I cried at the end -- who says there's no crying in baseball? -- happy for the winners, sad for the losing team. When they all ran up the hill afterwards, all of them, both teams, I thought that was the greatest thing.

Did they all get to go to Dairy Queen afterwards, that's what I want to know. I hope so.
