Improv Everywhere makes the kids' day.: For one day, two Little League teams got to experience the big leagues; complete with shirtless fans, NBC's Jim Gray calling the game, a jumbotron and the Goodyear blimp.

Terrific. The blimp thing is awesome. I can't believe they got the freakin' blimp.

That is so awesome. I once played a soccer game when I was about that age in which a team of guys came to film the game, provide commentary and do after game interviews; then they sold the videos to the teams. That was cool, but man, this is the whole shabang. Fans, mascots, Jim F-ing Gray!

That was AWESOME. Can you feel the love?

That's incredible. I've never seen anything at a little league game that has even come close to that.

I've always been kind of meh towards Improv Everywhere, but that brought a tear to my hardened eye.

This has to be one of the most ausome things done. Can you imagine how those kids will feel for years about this. You know they will each get a copy of everything done... These kids were floating on air that day... Great job...

Great post, NoMich - thanks This is ridiculously cool. I help coach a U10 team and I can't begin to imagine how bonkers the guys would go if this happened to them. I wouldn't be at all surprised if this gets "paid forward" by someone in attendance or who has read about it. Again, great post - this kind of thing is why I'm a SpoFi member.

This is terrific, but would anyone else have thought to approach the three guys with their shirts off yelling at a Little League game and ask them what the fuck they were doing? Love, Mr. Partypooper, Esq.
