Take Me out to The Ball Game

Wow! What a great opening ceremony for the College World series!! Unfortunately we got their a little later than I had wanted to, but just in time to hear Yellow Card take the stage. I actually got a good parking spot. Had to pay $10, but considering how close it was, I was willing to pay for it. It was so awesome to see the sea of people and all the vendors.

Since my son had been grounded, the only way I got to take him and stay on his dad's good side was to take him alone without bringing any of his friends. Since hanging in the mosh pit and crowd surfing isn't too cool to do with your mom, we had to stand pretty far from the stage. But we were still able to see the band every now and then. After about a half an hour of that, my son got annoyed with me standing by him, so we headed into the stadium.

The actual presentation of the teams and the usual speeches, yada yada yada, weren't too bad. The evening was capped off by a spectacular firework show that only Omaha knows how to put on. I would rate it up there with Omaha's 100th celebration down at the river...now that was a fireworks show!

The only downfall of the evening was that I kept getting lost. (and Lic if you are reading this, I was about to call you for directions!) Ok I will admit it....I am directionally challenged. Now that I have admitted it, it is time to get one of those compass things to put on my dashboard. The other downfall was the fact that I missed Game 4 of the NBA finals...but that is ok..series is tied up and there is still hope for my MIAMI HEAT!!!


If you can't laugh, what's the fucking point!
