The Series Is Over - For Some
Well, I guess that's it. In a couple of hours the baseball team from the University of North Carolina will arrive in Chapel Hill after being ousted from the College World Series. The Tar Heels' 6-1 loss to the Bulldogs of Fresno State prevented them from reaching the championship series for the third consecutive year. The boys had to have been exhausted. After rain delays and a postponement and the depletion of its bullpen, the team simply looked tired last night. It was draining for me to watch (and to work), so I can't imagine how my Heels felt. As they fly home, I'm preparing to go to work; I must stay to do the championship series, in which I honestly have no interest at the moment. It should be Carolina playing Georgia for the championship, not Fresno State. Sure, the Bulldog/Bulldog matchup is a great story, but I'd rather be cheering for my team. As always, I'll do the best job I can possibly do, but I'll be thinking of the Tar Heels and what could've been.
