One of the more interesting stories of the day is the announcement by Donald Trump that Miss California, Carrie Prejean, can keep her crown.  I know there are a lot of people on both sides of this one, but I believe that the Donald made a wise decision today.  Now lets pray that Carries uses the platform that she has been given to not only advance her career, but to glorify God in the process.

9-year old boy told he is too good to pitch

August 26, 2008

Jericho Scott

Some of you may have heard about 9-year old Jericho Scott who is an outstanding pitcher for a little league baseball team in New Haven, Connecticut.  He can throw up to 40 mph and after his team built a record of 8-0 is now being told that he is too good to pitch in that league.  You can read the full story HERE.  After reading the story it sounds to me like some if the parents are mad that they can’t beat this team and now want to take away one of their best wepons to try and even the playing field.  That’s just wrong and is very poor sportsmanship.  I understand that no one wants to lose, but to resort to this kind of behavior is a shame.

Let me know what you thinkby leaving your comments.
