Really nice to see the Czechs and South Africans with mostly homegrown rosters!

don't laugh now...wait to see the Italian roster, first! :lol: (at least, I hope we have to laugh on that, because I fear we'll have to cry if there are more than 2 Italian born Italians on that team)...

We’ve got an every-expense-spared Opening Ceremony!


Nothing says Baseball like a brass band in traditional Bavarian Costume!  :thumbup:

Still, can guarantee that this will be the best beer & bratwurst at any baseball stadium.  :beer:

Oh, Help me God, a German rapper!  :sick:

Uh oh, France take a 1-0 lead.  Empire Strikes Back 2-1.  British catcher & lead-off batter is called Harrison Ford btw,


France have a mascot.  It’s a Chicken.  :cheer:

France turn a double play!  But GBR score 3-1.  Top 4th.
