Congrats to the 9 year old baseball team. I'm scratching my head as I read that the BUSC 15 year old soccer club made the semi-finals of their own tourney. On the other hand, given the fact that BUSC is a second tier soccer club I guess they do consider making the semi finals a newsworthy event. Set the bar a little higher boys!

Robert, they needed something to celebrate, even if it was a small victory. Very few of the BUSC teams were successful this past weekend. What gives?

Sally, "Very few of the BUSC teams were successful this past weekend." You said, it, I didn't. BUSC steals these people's money like they are taking candy from a baby and I've yet to see them produce a top tier team, let alone a top tier player. I can accept being excited about a 9 year old team making a semi-final game and the team manager promoting it in the local paper but 15 year olds? Come on!!! Mark my word...NONE of these kids will go on to do anything athletically past high school. BUSC has prided themselves for years on being satisfied with semi-final appearances and they will continue to be seen as a second rate club. That's all that gives...
