Little League
"We didn't quit. That's us!...You're all my boys."

After the Cumberland American team lost at the Little League World Series on Monday, their amazing coach, David Belisle, gave them a speech they’ll likely never forget. The team lost 8-7 to a team from Illinois, and many of the Cumberland players couldn’t help but cry. Belisle, however, couldn’t have been prouder of his team, and knew exactly what to say to cheer them up. I don’t know about you, but life lately has put me in need of a serious pep talk, and this one totally does the trick, whether you’re losing at baseball or whatever else life is throwing at you right now.

"They See My Fastball And They Get Kind Of Scared"

Mo’Ne Davis, a 13-year-old from Philadelphia, led her Little League baseball team to the World Series by striking out six batters on Sunday with her amazing pitching skills. Her fellow players are male, and she’ll be only the 18th girl to play in the Little League World Series, which will take place in Williamsport, Pennsylvania. Davis, who plays for the Taney Youth Baseball Association, can pitch a 70-mph fastball.

Girls have only been allowed to participate in the Little League World Series since 1974. Just one other girl will play in this year’s Series, Emma March of Canada’s South Vancouver league.

Captivating

Every muscle in my body hurts just by watching Misty Copeland dance in this Under Armour ad. The American Ballet Theater ballerina (the first African-American soloist, in fact!) is utterly breathtaking and she proves just what someone can be capable of with hard work and dedication. It’s like a whole new way to look at the human body.

Watch The Trailer For “Mudbloods,” The Documentary About Real-Life Quidditch Players

Quidditch
Fascinating

Quidditch isn’t just played in “Harry Potter” — it’s become a real-life sport on college campuses all over the U.S. “Mudbloods,” a documentary hitting limited theaters and On Demand in October, will explore the intense subculture that compels people to run around on a field with a broom between their legs at a competitive level. The filmmakers will follow the determined UCLA Quidditch team as they try to make it to the Quidditch World Cup (an actual thing!) in New York City. From the looks of it, quidditch is tough, and the players’ happy attitudes are what get them through. The movie looks totally intriguing and oddly inspirational. [io9]
