Take me out to the ballgame; take me out with the crowds; buy me some peanuts and Crackerjacks; I don’t care if I never get back; We will root, root root for the Aggies, (Ok, I was just checking to see if you were reading or singing) If They don’t win, it’s because time ran out; But it’s one, two, three strikes you’re out at the old ball game. NCAA College World Series. I guess the “walk-off win” is like the buzzer beater in basketball. There have been several walk-off wins, and there have been several almost, but not quite, walk-offs too. And we are only in the Regional brackets. Each year the teams seem to get better and the excitement builds. However, like most TV sporting venues, there is too much talk. Whoever is calling the Aggie/Longhorn game, please shut up! You talk more and say less than Jon Gruden. And also please learn to pronounce these small Texas towns. For example, last night’s pitcher for the Aggies is from Diboll, Texas, way behind the Pine Curtain. You pronounced it DIB ALL! It is DIE BALL, as in Dumb Ass! Speaking of baseball, the Bryan Bombers open their season tomorrow night. But for this evening’s diamond of the night it is the Aggies and the Longhorns. It is a must win for both teams. Win and you move on. Lose and you come home. Gig ‘Em!
