While they didn't win it all, they still overachieved a bit, making it to the semifinals.

When you're Dutch, apparently that's reason for celebration.

They definitely did it right, with the plaque that Blyleven tweeted out today.

While they lost the baseball tournament, they're definitely the champs in the "Best Slogan" department.

It has just the right amount of cockiness and confidence, as well as a little bit of grammatical butchery, to make it perfect.

Here's the full plague, via Blyleven's twitter account:
