How’s it going, folks? Mississippi State gets the day off because the Bulldogs beat Virginia the other evening. Now the Cavaliers are in the elimination bracket and will play the Texas Longhorns. The winner gets to move on and play Mississippi State. The loser will be headed home.
Mississippi State news from The Underdog Tribune:
- ‘I love the fact that we never quit’: Chris Lemonis discusses Mississippi State’s comeback win over Virginia – Mississippi State shares great videos of the Bulldogs head coach, Chris Lemonis, speaking with the team after his team gets a win. You need to watch this one.
- Mississippi State rallies to beat Virginia in College World Series – The Mississippi State Bulldogs just didn’t quit Tuesday evening. Down 4-0, the Bulldogs roared back and were able to defeat the Virginia Cavaliers in the College World Series.
- Mississippi State wants you to watch Will Bednar, Landon Sims combine for 21 strikeouts against Texas Longhorns – Mississippi State’s win over Texas was a historic one. The Bulldogs were able to come out and shut down a prolific offense on college baseball’s biggest stage, TD Ameritrade Park during the 2021 College World Series.
What’s happening elsewhere?
- Look: ESPN mistakes Adrian Martinez for Taylor Martinez with embarrassing graphic at College World Series – Mistakes will happen at any given moment when producing a TV broadcast (or really in anything that happens in life). It’s just part of it. This isn’t the first error a human being has made and it certainly won’t be the last. But it isn’t a great look for the “worldwide leader in sports” to mistake Adrian Martinez for a guy who last played a half decade before Adrian even arrived on campus. Come on, ESPN.
- Watch: Vanderbilt had the craziest walkoff win you’ll ever see in College World Series vs. Stanford – So, the whole Martinez mixup thing wasn’t the only bizarre thing that happened last night. The Vanderbilt Commodores won (so that means everyone has to deal with more whistling during the College World Series), but Vandy winning isn’t a bizarre thing. That happens all the time. The Commodores are good. It’s expected that they win. Vanderbilt won in an incredible way. You need to see how that happened.
- Report: Tennessee prepared to make Tony Vitello highest-paid baseball coach in nation – It looks like the Vols want to keep their baseball coach. I can’t blame them. Vitello is very good at what he does and could really turn that program into something special if given enough time.
- 3 finalists revealed for LSU baseball coach – Speaking of coaches, LSU still needs a coach. The Tigers apparently have their search down to three candidates. Now they just need to land one.
Today we’re listening to a couple different songs.
Let’s start with “Wilder Days” by Morgan Wade. It’s upbeat, energetic, and thoughtful as it paints a story about a couple that is working through some degree of difference in lifestyles (and age) as they fall in love. It’s a great change of pace from some of the other stuff I tend to listen to and it’s fun to listen to while you’re working.
Next we’ve got Charley Crockett and “Wreck Me,” an old-school country tune that fits Crockett’s voice perfectly. The song is mellow and smooth and sad and peaceful. I’m a fan. That said, I’m also a fan of Crockett’s other work as well.
With the College World Series set to start, NCAA baseball fans from all over the country will be headed to Omaha, Nebraska, to watch the country’s eight best teams play each other with the goal of winning a championship. While it’s often overlooked, Omaha is a city that deserves more credit for everything it has to offer.
I actually had the pleasure of living in Omaha for a couple of years and, despite the bitter winters, I thoroughly enjoyed my time living in the Midwest.
Omaha is a wonderful city with a great food scene, plenty of bars (especially sports bars), and a solid amount of nightlife.
There’s always something happening somewhere in town and, thanks to the size and layout of the city, it’s pretty easy to get just about anywhere you need within 20 to 30 minutes.
If you’ve got the opportunity to go see the College World Series, you should definitely take it.
And if you’ll be in Omaha, it’s worth getting a few ideas on what to do while you’re there. That’s what this guide is for, to help you get some ideas on what to do during your trip to see your team in the CWS.
