An instant classic?

And I thought the Celtics and Bulls played an instant classic last night in the NBA Playoffs...

Two Kansas girls softball teams had a game for the ages earlier this week when it took 23 innings to determine a winner. The teams from Lansing and Basehor-Linwood were scheduled to play a double-header but the first game kept going...and going...and going. The game lasted four hours and is believed to be the longest game in Kansas girls softball history.

Perhaps more amazing than the sheer length of the game was this--Brittney Lang, the Lansing senior who had the game-winning hit, also pitched for the Lions. The thing is, she pitched all 23 innings and struck out 38 batters! That makes Ray Allen's 58 minutes and 51 points for the Celtics, over three overtimes last night, pale in comparison.
