Little League World Series Drinking Game

We are about a week away from ESPN and ABC's coverage of the 2008 Little League World Series. Some people think that the Little League World Series is about kids having a good time and enjoying America's Pastime, while others see it as overzealous parents living vicariously through their children while major television networks profit from it. Whatever your stance on the Little League World Series is, we can all agree that there is nothing more American than booze and baseball.
