Most ridiculous response i've ever read. "Great for the club that wins it"... unless you are from long island, it aint your club that is going to win it. "Doesn't cost the club anything"...right...because it costs the parents of the players thousands...for a few days of kids getting "movie star status".
Does anybody really think it's prestigious? perhaps for the kids from Illinois. For the LIE kids its just another stomping ground where they don't have to deal with their dads as much because of the legalization of the leafy green in Colorado.
As soon teams from outside the Northeast start winning it regularly, it's just a marketing ploy to get your money. Sounds like this clown is willing to fork it over.
