College sports

For someone who never went beyond secondary school over here, and certainly never went to college in the US, let alone over here, I’m getting steadily addicted to college sports, even before the football season gets underway. Yes, I suppose I guessed they played baseball in college, just had no ideas of the details of how big it might be.

Yes, blame the European version of ESPN America for that, currently we are getting coverage of the College World Series, from Omaha, Nebraska, and the final series started last night. No, I’m not that addicted that I stayed up and watched, but saw the ‘as live’ broadcast earlier this afternoon all the same. Arizona won, and given South Carolina have won it (apparently) for the last 2 years, well a change would be nice! As no Kansas, or Oklahoma state team has been mentioned at any point, I assume they either dont play, or arent among the elite in this sport? Yes, I’m biased, as the Merry Brooks name on the forums might giveaway lol!

From what I gather, those areas might do better when the football season starts up. Oh goodness, I’m getting quite into this college affiliation thing, even with no real attachment whatsoever! Beginning to think I missed out on something, but its about 35 years too late to put that right now! Not that I was ever a great sports person, but anyway…softball might have been fun, who knows?

I dont know, is it all very serious, or is the college stuff slightly less intense than the major leagues? I suppose I shouldnt expect Americans not to be competitive about everything, but…?

Any US college want to make me an honorary alma mater lol? No, I know, but no harm in asking, is there? Colleges in certain areasĀ of the country hold more appeal, anyone who cant work out where, well, I’m disappointed in you lol!

As I say, the tournament is being held in Omaha, and I thought for at least 30 seconds as to what the video should be. I could only think of one song that mentions Omaha anywhere in the song, and this is it.
