Factual errors 

During the Olympiad softball game, one of the girls on the North Star team tells her teammate to hit the ball to the Mohawk outfielder with "big boobs" because she can't catch. When the ball is hit to the buxom outfielder, it appears to fall into her shirt on the fly, which would cause the ball to become dead and each runner would be awarded two bases.
Wheels' drop-kick, in the Olympiad wrestling scene, is an illegal move in "real" (amateur) wrestling. Also, you don't have to pin the guy for a three-count in amateur wrestling. It only has to be for a full second.
You ante in poker, not in blackjack.
During the Olympiad Softball Game, it is explained to Jody that it is the bottom of the ninth with two outs. However, regulation softball even on the collegiate level is only seven innings.
