So, a couple things come to mind when thinking of Nebraska typically: good steaks and good football, football being the preeminent thing in all Nebraskans minds next to the weather. We loves us some football.
So, I can’t think I am the only one who finds it utterly bizarre that Nebraska has made it to the College World Series again. This is seriously messing with our whole mindset. Nebraska baseball has been non-existent for the last bazillion years. Now we have state representation at the Series (which if you are a fan, you know that the Series is held right here in Omaha)?! At this rate, we might legalize pot and gay marriage in one fell swoop, just because our world has been turned upside down. I’m sure rabid baseball fans are in the making as we speak, retro-fitting their football gear to baseball as quickly as their obsessions/wallets will let them (“I’ve always been a fan of the baseball program!”).
Despite the fanboy love, congratulations to the Husker baseball team, and good luck here in Omaha. And if you are nearby, try to make it any one of the games: the CWS is a blast to watch (as with most college sports).
