Over the weekend, the Malvern American Legion team went on the road to take part in the Little Rock Junior Invitational Tournament.
The first game on Saturday, against the Little Rock Pythons, was an offensive showcase for Malvern, as they came away with a 16-7 win to earn a spot in the championship game.
The two teams went back and forth in the first couple of innings trading runs. Malvern led 3-2 after the first and 5-3 after two innings.
Last night I quickly grew tired of the College World Series (even though there was a good game being played) and I began channel surfing.
As I made my way through the channels, I remembered it was Monday night, which was once a very significant night in my youth.
Monday was important because it meant it was pro wrestling night. I was quite the WCW fan in college and watched it sporadically ever since.
