    Never said that. At D nationals you get a + for going 3-2.

    If you have a suggestion on how to make player ratings universal, I am all ears.

    I wish I had an easy answer for that. Unfortunately, I don’t.

    Kaposia Days was fun the one time I played in it. I don't know how it is now with the new fields, though.

    Friendly City Days is a good one. Good atmosphere, lots of people and if you do bad, you can go on the Zipper and turn that frown upside down.

    The only other two I can think of are Shakopee and Spudfest, but you already know those ones.

    I like the Faribualt fields, I don’t remember the dates but bash for cash was a nice one, wonder if they’d ever bring that one back?

    I wish we could read appeals still. 4 guys threatening to quit if they don't win appeals and who doesn't know by now that they need to list there team?

    I didn't even do the book. I did look pretty cute in my cheerleader outfit though. Miniskirts really show off my legs.

    I know the jacks shantytown team split up, de had half and curt maybe has half of last years team, or slightly less maybe 4 guys each? Both trying to play d I think. But de and the main core have always been d they just played up and were never bumped. Curt and the others were bumped when shantytown blackout was bumped two years ago. I know gaf is also petitioning down to d. All three teams should be decent, maybe gaf will be the strongest of those three. Not sure who de all has, but Evan is one of the better cf out there.

    I don't see any appeals that will really cause any huge waves. The Stagecoach/CA one does happen every couple years but they also play by the rules, try to compete in B and move down. MN has quantity over quality at nationals so I think in C and D it's about trying to compete and place. Is that really something we want to do? Tough balancing act for the powers that be when reviewing it.

    It'll be interesting to see who makes it through and who doesn't.

    And these guys trying to appeal without putting a team down need to take a lap.

    Does anybody know who Stevie Wonder is on USA softball petition page? Makes for interesting reading seeing people complain.
