Waipio (Waipahu) Wins the World for Hawaii & the USA

It's been over a year since I have blogged anything at this site. But today I cannot help myself as the town next door to my own (Mililani) has won the Little League World Series . . . beating Mexico, Matamoros in the final championship game today 12 to 3. This is the second time in four years that a local team on Oahu has accomplished this amazing feat.

Many of the kids on this team have gone to the same school that some of the kids in my church attend. Hawaii is a small place and we all feel the joy when someone succeeds and we all share the disappointment together when we fall short. Today is a day for joy! Congratulations to the outstanding players, coaches and parents of our World Champion Waipio Little Leage World Champions!
