Did you know that the sport of baseball goes all the way back to the mid-18th century? Baseball is a sport that everyone seems to look forward to. Move over football – it’s our turn now to have the TV stations focus on a sport where you can keep track of the ball and not lose it in a pile of bodies.

Since way back to June 19, 1846 when the very first game was recorded with actual written rules, every member of the family can relate to the sounds of Strike! or You’re OUT, or Safe!

Whether you live on the East coast or the West coast, baseball is steeped with rich American history. July 14, 2009, will signify the bringing together of the National and American League teams where they will meet together in St. Louis, Missouri at Busch Stadium.

Are you ready for the excitement? Do you think you have what it takes to be an All-Star Material? Why not take a look at our New Feature highlight on the Wilson “Are You All-Star Material” Sweepstakes. I’m sure you won’t be able to resist entering for YOUR chance to win. Have fun!

How many of you have had words that just seem to trip up your tongue and have you saying some pretty weird stuff? Did you know that there are actual tongue twister contests that spur the competitive nature in all of us?

Yes, that’s right. There are actual contests where people will try to say difficult phrases as many times as they can, as fact as they can, and all without tripping up and making a mistake.

Let me explain a little bit about what a tongue twister is. Think of it this way – it’s a short sentence or phrase that is VERY tricky to say fast. You know, I’m sure you remember as a kid having a contest with your best friend to see who could say, “how much wood could a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?” Remember those days? Aren’t contests fun?

Here’s a fun site for you to look at: Tongue Twisters Galore. Maybe you have kids in your family that have birthdays right around the corner and you need a quick idea for fun things to do at birthday parties. Here’s a great idea – split the guests into two or more teams and have contests to see who can say tongue twisters without slipping up. The winner could get a prize.

Let me give you some examples:

  • If you must cross a course cross cow across a crowded cow crossing, cross the cross coarse cow across the crowded cow crossing carefully.
  • A noise annoys an oyster, but a noisy noise annoys an oyster more!
  • Catch a can canner canning a can as he does the cancan, amd you’ve caught a can-canning can-canning can canner!
  • I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream! (Ummm, good 🙂 )
  • If two witches would watch two watches, which witch would watch which watch?
  • The sixth sick sheik’s sixth sheep’s sick. (I can see why this one is a Guiness Book of World Records winner, can’t you?)

So my friends, contests come in all kinds and can be loads of fun. Let me leave you with this tongue twister to send you on your way. How many yaks could a yak pack pack if a yak pack could pack yaks? Say that quickly if you can.
