i dont no how this is gunna work this is gunna be hard

Why on earth did they say the World Record Attempt would be at 12:30, and then do it at 12:15?? A lot of people missed it!!!

Ya, I agree. I thought the attempt would be at 12:30 and barely made it. No less, we broke the record!

Well that is why they asked everyone to be at the field early. I was there and it was great. I took my ten year old son with me and it will be something he will remember forever im sure. It was alot of fun....and yep we did it.

Ya was alot of fun and it sounded better than I even hoped it would. I will remember this forever. Ya we did it and beat it by a long way!

That was the most fun I have ever had playing!
It was GREAT!
Thanks KY and all you other 1,682 pickers!
