Major League Baseball last weekend hosted the second annual (deep breath) "Little League Urban Initiative Jamboree." There are countless things that are amusing about this. Here are a few:
1. This is the first time the words "Urban" and "Jamboree" have been used in the same sentence. (Our mental picture is of Bud Selig picking a banjo in front of a bunch of confused kids in cornrows.)
2. This "urban" event is taking place in the gritty burg of Williamsport, Pennsylvania.
3. It, of course, rained all weekend in Williamsport.
