Monday, June 26, 2017 – My Monday after Weekend College Sports Awards
Those of us in Texas know that the season that precedes football is called baseball and maybe golf. I usually post Here’s What I’m Thinking about the previous weekend’s college football games. I seldom do other sports awards, but as always there is an exception. Here are my Monday after the weekend college sports awards.
Best Golf Shot of the Year – Jordon Spieth’s chip out from the bunker to win The Travelers Championship in Sudden Death. Spectacular. The celebratory jump with his caddie was pretty good too. Google it.
My College World Series Awards
First to the Oregon Beavers – I did not think LSU could defeat you twice. Nevertheless, here is your Welcome to the SEC! Trophy.
To TCU –I was somewhat hoping for an all purple CWS final. Here is your second place, Welcome to the SEC! Trophy. Note to NCAA, if the Aggies cannot have any form of bubble making machines or devices for celebrations of runs because they are distracting, then TCU cannot have beach balls. There were more beach balls in the stadium than at a Grateful Dead Show in Mountain View. Also, NCAA, the bubbles burst and no one has to run on to the field to pick one up.
To the other teams who were in the bracket to reach the College World Series, great job. Very proud of all of you and hope to see you next year with Aggie bubbles.
But tonight we go to North Baton Rouge – formerly known as Omaha – for the first game of the finals of the College World Series between the LSU Tigers and that horrid team from Gainesville, Florida. Never trust a team from Florida or a team that has a mascot that tastes like chicken.
