Omaha, Somewhere in Middle America

What is a game cock?  Aside from about 10 thousand dirty jokes, a Game Cock is now a College Baseball champion.  The University of South Carolina has won the College World Series, beating UCLA in 2 games.  It was a great game & they won it in extra innings.  They were considered the home team in this game so they got to win in walk-off fashion.  It’s only the 2nd championship that any sports team at USC has ever won (the other was I believe in track & field.)

This was also the last College World Series game to ever be played at Rosenblatt Stadium.  This has been the home of the CWS since 1950.  The series will still be played in Omaha next year (& every year forevere after) but they will be in a brand new stadium.  It was a bittersweet series all week, because nobody wanted to leave the old gal.  So many players and coaches have passed through there & I’m sure playing there was up there among their favorite memories.
