What's Czech for "disappointment?"

Tangentially related to the Blue Jays (Arencibia was the MVP of this thing last time)...

The 2008 World University Baseball Championship features the following teams:
Chinese Taipei
Czech Republic (hosts)

Or, if you prefer:

Tacoma Sidewinders
Lansing Lugnuts
Kitchener Panthers
Vermont Expos
Sultanes de Monterrey
Frisco RoughRiders
Frederick Banting Memorial High School
Boston Red Sox

How can you have a world baseball championship without even one Latin American team?

The results for Banting High so far:

L 5-0 (Czech Republic)
L 11-0 (Korea)
L 30-1 (USA)
L 25-0 (Canada)
L 25-0 (Japan)

The one run was unearned, for what that's worth.

Also, the Canadians, despite losing to all the real teams, still took the undefeated Japanese and American teams to extras. I expected a whitewashing from the US team, not 7-6.
