Hate to sounds like sour grapes; but.......................         SO tired of
hearing California, California, California, California, California, California,
California the best, California the most famous, California the place to be for
fastpitch.  Malarkey folks! There are alot of little girls that live all over
the U.S. that get scholarships in fastpitch and succeed at having a successful
and fun college fastpitch career (even if they don't live in California).
California may be more saturated with fastpitch and usually are very good at
it; but, sheesh, why saturate the board with the same ole " California the
bestest, mostest, etc. "  This old sour puss says she is getting tired of
reading it and lately hasn't really bothered to read much on this "California"
board until now.    O.k......all you dedicated Californians......let me have
it!!!!  Heh heh >=o)

Thats very true but how many made the college world series?  The Pac 10
conference had 5 of the 8 teams who made it to the world series including the
winner.
Most of the time you hear about California teams because we are constantly
being told that the Florida's and Texas teams are as good or better.  Where I
come from you don't make claims unless you can back it up.

The condition of the neighborhood the last time I was at Hollywood & Vine was
so poor, if you stood their for 10 minutes, you could be considered a survivor.

I am 48 years old and for 44 years I lived in So Cal.  I thought it was
the best place in the world for 44 years.  I was one of the arrogant
ones who looked down on anyone not from So Cal.  We went in with the
attitude that any team not from California was dead meat.  Well, you
know, now that I'm away from it, I am embarrassed at how I acted.  There
are talented girls everywhere, and the real prize is the college
education that softball provides.  So what if a college  does not get to
the College World Series.  We're talking about a handfull of girls when
you consider how many colleges play softball.  I know lots of talented
softball players IN California who are NOT going to Pac 10 schools.
The percentage is so small.  But the fact that they and girls from
around the country are able to get an education and play softball is
very special....and NOT limited to So Cal.

Okay, group everyone together and call'em all left coasters.  start a
rec.sport.notcalifornia.softball newsgroup and I'm sure they will come.

Kinda like you're not talking baseball unless it's about the Yankees?

Lotta involvement, lotta talk.  Ignore the conceited softball snobs
everywhere, get the best coach in your area, and have fun playing!

My dog is bigger than your dog... give it a rest.  

on any given day, quality teams from anywhere can beat quality teams
from anywhere.  

injury,
draw,
umpires,
errors,
weather

can all influence the final outcome of game -  just like:

dedication
coaching
practice
coaching, and oh yeah, coaching

makes your player a better player.  

wherever you live.

Hey, it's the cheese......
