Live Game Blog: 2012 Little League World Series Game, Japan 12, Tennessee 2, Final

Japan and Tennessee play for the 2012 Little League World Championship in Williamsport Pennsylvania.  Japan is the very heavy favorite with their Ace pitcher on the mound today.  None of Tennessee’s pitchers can pitch due to exhausting their eligibility.  But this is Little League and anything can happen.  Let’s hope the home town boys from Goodlettsville Tennessee Little League representing the USA can pull the upset over Japan.

Congrats to Japan for winning the 2012 Little League World Series.  The Boys from Goodlettsville Tennessee were out matched not being able to play their best pitchers facing a Japan team playing their best 2 pitchers.  It’s amazing one Little League team can have 2 pictures throwing the equivalent of 95 MPH pitches, but that is what Japan had throwing at Tennessee today.  The only hits Goodlettsville could muster today were home runs from Tennessee’s 2 best home run hitters Brock Meyers and Lorenzo Butler.  This writer is very proud of how the Boys from Goodlettsville battle against the equivalent of Major League pitching fast balls.

 

 


Goodlettsville Tennessee Wins United States Little League Championship 24 to 16 in Extra Innings over Petaluma California

The Boys from Goodlettsville have won their first ever United States Little League Championship!  The Goodlettsville Little League All Stars faced a Petaluma California team that would not give up being down 10 runs and facing their last at bat and tying the game up to force an extra inning.  But the Little Leaguers from Goodlettsville had a little of their own “not giving up” to score 9 runs in the top of the 7th inning to win the game.  Brock Meyers pitched a superb game holding Petaluma to just 5 runs thru 6 innings of play.  Lorenzo Butler had 3 three run home runs and 9 RBI’s.  But my own star of the game was Luke Brown who came into relief with the score Goodlettsville 15, Petaluma 9.  You could here the Goodlettsville coach come in to calm Luke Brown down after a few pitches and saying “just have fun and throw strikes”.  So here was Luke Brown throwing strikes and giving up 6 runs and the lead to push the game into an extra inning.  Then Luke’s teammates scored 9 runs giving the lead back to Luke Brown in the bottom of the 7th. All Luke did was throw strikes giving up one run and striking out the  last Petaluma batter to win the United States Championship for the Goodlettsville Little League All Stars!  Luke Brown was a picture of composure and never got rattled.

You have to think Japan has a huge advantage with Goodlettsville’s pitching staff so depleted.  But I have to guess the coaches are telling these brave kids from Tennessee, that show no fear, to just go out and hit the ball.  So now we have to think that if the All Stars from Goodlettsville should score 24 runs against Japan, then they have an excellent chance to win the Little League World Series.  I’m reminded after Petaluma’s 10 run 6th inning, when it comes to Little League baseball, anything can happen!

LSU Tigers Soundly Defeat Tennessee Volunteers at Neyland in Knoxville

Les Miles brought the top ranked LSU Tigers to Tennessee’s Neyland Stadium on Saturday for another road game and defeated the Tennessee Volunteers 38-7.  After jumping out to a 14-0 lead in the first half the Vols closed within 14-7 with 2:24 remaining in the 1st half behind the running of Tauren Poole.  LSU came right back with a field goal to end the half with LSU up 17-7.  Everyone was left wondering how Tennessee would approach the 2nd half after Matt Simms had thrown 2 first half interceptions and with Poole running the ball well to end the 1st half.  Unfortunately for Tennessee , LSU’s Defense took over under the guidance of John Chavis.  It was a difficult day for Coach Chavis returning for the first time to Tennessee’s Neyland Stadium as the Defensive Coordinator for LSU.

The 2nd half back breaker for Tennessee was a 99 yard touchdown drive accomplished by all running plays.  Vol Fans started hitting the aisles after going up 31 to 7 with 8:55 left in the game.  Starter Matt Simms was ineffective replacing the SEC leading Quarterback Tyler Bray who might miss the rest of the season with a hand injury.

From a fan perspective it was a beautiful day in Knoxville for the LSU/Tennessee football game.  Tiger Fans were huffing and puffing navigating the hills around Tennessee’s beautiful College Football game day.  Attending a Volunteer Football game is one of the best college football has to offer.  The Tennessee Band and the Vols running through the T gets no better on a pristine Fall Day in Knoxville, TN.

LSU Tigers Defeat West Virginia Mountaineers 47-21

The #2 ranked LSU Tigers Football Team soundly defeated the West Virginia Mountaineers 47 to 21 at Mountaineer Field in Morgantown, West Virginia to remain undefeated at 4-0.   Mountaineer Fans were dressed in their school Gold colors to paint the entire stadium Gold with clusters of Purple from the over 7,500 LSU fans who traveled to Morgantown, WV.

West Virginia Mountaineer Fans Wear Gold to Support their Mountaineers

It was this writers first visit to Morgantown for a West Virginia football game at Milan Puskar Stadium.  I was not dissapointed in anyway.  The West Virginia Fans were extremely friendly and proved to be very SEC fan passionate about their Mountaineers.  I was fortunate to receive an invitation from an LSU Fan who had received an invitation to tailgate with a large group of Mountain Fans.  This group of Mountaineers have been tailgating together for many years.  They had one of the best set ups for tailgating I’ve ever experienced on an out of conference road trip and they know their Whiskey!  This obviously has something to do with the name of their tailgate “Coughing Corner”.  It was great to learn so much about the history of West Virginia Football and how passionate they are for their Mountaineers. Thanks for the warm welcome from this great group of ‘Neer Fans who know how to roll out the Gold carpet to a visiting LSU Tiger!

It was a short walk to the stadium thru may Mountaineer Fans and Tailgaters.  Everyone was very friendly to this Tiger before, during and after the game.  After finding my seat in the upper deck of section 203 near the top I was happy to see what a great view I had of the stadium and game.  The Mountaineer Band was very entertaining and good.  I just wish the stadium managers would get rid of the piped in music that keeps blaring loudly, I would much prefer to hear the band!  The game started out quick for LSU racing to a 14-0 lead which brought the Mountaineer crowd noise down a few decibels until the 3rd quarter when West Virginia closed to with in 6 points.  After that LSU pulled away for good for another LSU win and the #1 ranking coming out the next day.

I’m including some of my pictures all taken on game day.  I was lucky enough to get the sequence of Tyrann Mathieu’s interception right before the half.  I can now check off  Morgantown as another great College Football game day experience!  Thanks again to all the West Virginia Fans who treated so many of us Tigers so well!!!
