The College World Series started over the weekend. I realize that not many people around here follow college baseball, but this is one of the great sporting events in the country. If you are even a little bit of baseball fan - spending a couple of days in Omaha during the CWS is awesome. I had the pleasure of shooting the entire series last year for Baseball America (16 games in 10 days). I could not make it back this year (my wife scheduled a european vacation instead) -- but my son and I already have it penciled into the master calendar for next year.
Going into the series, my pick to win it all was Cal State Fullerton. Of course they were the first team eliminated. In Omaha, we call that "two and barbecue". LSU has sprung up into the cat-birds seat with a win last night against Arkansas. My finals prediction right now is Texas v LSU.
