So who is going to Omaha?

OM, I'm seriously considering it. Back in 2006, I went for the last 3 games against UNC. I arrived late, caught the last 4 innings of the first game. We had to sleep in a rental car the first night. However, it turned out to be one of the best vacations/trips ever. Just be prepared for the heat and humidity if you have never been to Omaha. I've never experienced a more humid and hot place.

My wife is looking at flights and hotels beginning on Friday or Saturday begininning June 21st. I've also considered just jumping in the car and driving.

UNC vs OSU

FB, I agree about some payback. It would also be fun to have a new rival in LSU and have some lively discussions with Blake and Hedgehog. Sorry RD, but the Ducks proved to be no match and the Beavs have already had some fun with UNC.

FB, on another note, it was great seeing your brother on Monday night at the game. I can tell there is some brotherly love in your family. Chris was sharing a little bit about your childhood and your bed wetting issues. Sorry to hear. I really enjoyed the phone call from one of his friends at the Tangent Tavern, while at the game, saying that Chris, Dodger Matt, DM's friend Dick, and Ophiman were on TV.

I'm glad he could join us.

Been to UNC twice. Won both times. Already beat UCLA this year. NC State would be nice. Would LOVE to play LSU in the finals. Little bit of payback from last year is hanging around waiting to be picked up by the tiggers.

Thanks for posting Kendall.
I really don't get the Mark Appel thing. He got beat by the best two teams in the Pac 12 - OSU and Oregon.
I really thought that Dylan Davis was the best player for the Beavers this year, not Michael Conforto.
Interesting that Jimmy Sherfy got no mention.

I tend to be a numbers guy. Davis clearly had the best year.

considering BB that Michael was the POY for the conference, thats a hard sell. Dylan has certainly had a very good year, but I think MC was better, especially late

FB, my mother said I was the biggest egg she ever hatched.

Ya, we had a good time at the game. The only thing better would have have been if Ophi supplied us with micro beers like he did on Saturday.

BB,


My brother said he had a great time at the game. Could hardly hear him over the phone because his voice was nearly gone from yelling. I really want to thank you for inviting him. You a good egg. (Beavers are hatched,, right?) LOL

Oh, BTW. I was watching the game at work and I did see what I thought was him on one of the camera pans of the crowd. Turns out I was right. When I talked to him I asked if he was wearing an orange Beavs hat with just a big O on the front. He said he started getting call like a minute after they panned y'all.

So a Beaver's winning baseball game with you great guys AND a national tv exposure. Some days just don't get any better.

FB, you have brought back some horrible memories of my second grade experience. I had to visit Mr. Smith, a speach pathologist for 3 months. I was unable to pronounce the letters sh. For example, instead of saying shoe, I would say sue.

Unfortunately, my inablity to properly pronunciate caused many issues. Several times, I would tell my teacher that I needed to sit, so she would tell me to just go ahead and have a seat. Well...you can image the rest.

Maybe for each side of the bracket for the 4 teams? 0-2 1-2, 2-2, 3-1 3-0?

(and a pisk em is almost lick a pick em, just with an intoxicated lisp)

I agree FB. The Beavs got a bum deal by having to move their game to Saturday. They really could have used one more day of rest.

Florida Beaver wrote:
I like the fact of Moore pitching on Saturday instead of the usual rotation that has Boyd on the mound first. After Boyd pitching last Friday and then pitching as the closer on Sunday (which I thought was pretty cool as it was his last game at Goss Field) his arm needs as much rest as possible. Pitching on Monday would be good for resting his arm, however, pitching Wetzler on Monday in the winner's bracket (yeah, I think we will beat MSU) and putting in Boyd for the winner of the loser bracket game would be good too. Depending on how many games the other bracket has to play would be a determining factor in the CWS finals rotation for the OSU arms to rest.

Blake, this link was posted on the Rivals Board. Looks like most of Vegas has UNC picked to win. Very suprising to me. The next choices are LSU or OSU.

Mississippi State hits the ball very well and run the bases very well. Watch out for Hunter Renfroe. He is the only batter in the SEC that I hold my breath for when he is at the plate. He may be one of the few that can hit it out of TD Ameritrade Park. The crazy thing is is that he plays outfield and is very fast and runs well on on the bases. Usually don't see that power and speed combo but he has plenty of both.

Hedegoba88, your statement below sounds like a bumper sticker. Just wait until you have been married 30 years. My wife and I will celebrate our 30th in October. Not a bad life, but get your traveling done early in your marriage. When the kids come, it's not as easy until they are out of the house and you have paid for their college.


Yea, getting married a month ago really sealed my fate

It's on my bucket list but I probably won't go unless LSU goes again. I'm like you, too much going on at work and I'm already taking a Disney World trip with the family in the winter so it's out of the question for me. I don't think my wife and girls would like it too much if I traded Disney for Omaha. I've never been to fond of sleeping on the couch.


Yea, getting married a month ago really sealed my fate this year. Pretty much used up all my vacation days on that. It's times like these that I miss being in college. Senior year at LSU was '09, was able to fly there the first weekend and catch 2 games. Then when LSU made the finals, me and a bunch of friends drove up for the championship series. What I would do to have free time like that now.

If LSU does make the championship series, I haven't given up hope. I still may find a way to get up there. It is such an awesome trip, make sure you scratch it off the bucket list someday!!

Trying to catch the game between graduation ceremonies. I see the link I sent you was not the link I intended to send. Sorry about that. I don't have access to it right now.

DM wonders aloud whether all the Beaver fans have traveled to Omaha as nobody is trading lame posts with him on the PG forum. Makes a face that no one can see, swigs a beer, and watches GameTracker animation of Conforto's ground-rule double.

Sore loser RD. don't you have to fly south for the summer?
