This weekend was Super Regionals at LSU. Win this, you go to Omaha for the College World Series. LSU hasn't been to Omaha in the last 3 years & I didn't think this year would be any different. Turns out I was right. I would love to have a new coach & I'm not the only one. It's not going to happen. At least not this year. I had to work Friday so I missed the 11 inning game that went on all day. Then it rained. A lot. We went to eat at Pluckers once they called the game. We had the most clueless waitress ever. It was bad.
We were at the park bright & early Saturday morning for the completion of Friday's game.
It took less than 10 mins. & LSU won. It was luck, pure & simple. They should've lost that game several times over the course of the day Friday.
35 minutes later it was time for game 2. LSU lost. They couldn't hit the broad side of a barn. Did I mentioned it rained again? Yeh, during the game but there was no lightening so they played through it. I distinctly remember telling Dean that "I'm not sitting out there in the rain". I even had my Nook in the truck just in case. What happened? I sat in the rain under an umbrella on & off for 2 hours. Stupid.
Yesterday's game was supposed to be at noon. We woke up to rain but it stopped pretty early. We were 20 mins. from leaving the house when Dean got a text saying that the game was being postponed to 7:00 because it was going to rain around 1:30 & they didn't want to start & then stop & start again. At 1:30 the sun was shining. We didn't get another drop of rain all day. I took a nap in preparation of a late night & early morning. It was short & not one of my best naps. LSU lost again. No Omaha. Congratulations Stony Brook. Before this weekend I'd never heard of them & I still don't know what a Seawolf is.
Needless to say 5:30 came very, very early this morning & I'm a little grumpy. I'm ready for the weekend.....
