Is a little league team from Ramstein Air Base really German? I'm seriously asking, I have no idea how the LLWS works.

And just like with the Germans, the Americans don't really show up until the 2nd or 3rd inning.

It's possible that one or two German kids snuck on the team, as children of base employees or something. But no, they's Americans.

The first time they played it was more like the 9th.

Don't let the facts get in the way of the headline.

The team from Hawaii had better be careful if they draw the Germans, though.
 
2012-08-21 08:44:44 AM
Why? Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor?
 
2012-08-21 08:49:04 AM
that's a good headline but not exactly accurate.

To be fair, the German kids aren't used to that kind of heat, it was like an oven at game time. Those kids looked gassed by the 3rd inning. I heard after the game to coach took them on a train ride to make them feel better.

Arent all the kids on the German team Army/Airforce brats? Like the middleastern teams are made up of the kids of oil contractors

Just what we needed: another retarded headline just as stupid as the 'this is for Pearl Harbor' comments you hear from racists every time the U.S. beats Japan at something. I get it - welcometofark.jpg - but this is lazy headline writing at its worst.

Those poor Germans, frequent targets of US racism.

It was two teams of US players. One team just happens to live overseas.

Not surprising Ramstein lost, as there are probably less than 100 kids of the correct age who live there. But they can take solace in the fact that they now get to go back to living at taxpayer expense in Europe, while the other team can look forward to going back to farking Nebraska.

Reminds me of the immortal wit of English mountaineer Don Whillans:

'Whillans was participating in the 1972 European Everest Expedition, attempting to climb Mount Everest's Southwest Face. The expedition had been plagued with several personality conflicts and the withdrawal of many climbers. While in camp, some of the other climbers overheard news that England had lost a soccer game to Germany. "It seems we have beaten you at your national sport," said a German. After a slight pause Whillans replied, "Aye, and we've beaten you at yours...twice."'

The Germans simply shrug and say, "Ja vel, unt now vi must go home unt show ze Americanz how to make ze money".

/'cause Germany is doing pretty well even without much baseball prowess

Ramstein air base? Why did they name an air base after a band?
 
2012-08-21 10:59:24 AM
RAMMSTEIN!

You're a very bad man because I chuckled at that.

"The players' parents serve or work at the U.S. military installation overseas"

So some of the players weren't even German, they were the children of U.S. military parents

Great headline, smitty. Ignore those pedantic bastiges upthread.

America's two pastimes are baseball, and destroying Germany sitting on their fat, isolationist asses for over two years while the UK and the Soviet Union kept the Huns at bay.

Fixed that for the Submittertard.

Soviets were good at keeping 'em out of their kitchen, but they needed America to help boot 'em out of the rest of the house.
