The NCAA hosted Super Regionals this past weekend. It’s college baseball’s version of the Sweet 16 with the winner of each 3-game series headed to Omaha for a shot at the National Title. The last series to be decided was UCLA vs. Michigan with UCLA being the #1 program and Michigan being a bunch of overachieving Midwesterners. No one except me and pornstar Brandi Love thought the Wolverines stood a chance.
And rightfully so: UCLA hadn’t lost a 3-game series at home in over two years and entered Super Regionals 52-9 with basically every single pitcher going to professional baseball vs. a bunch of guys that are equally excited for tailgating Jim Harbaugh games this fall. No one saw this coming
Tommy Henry – Michigan’s starting pitcher gets a beef for throwing 7 strong innings of 2 ER.
The Shortstop – I’m getting nervous just watching the last play so he gets one (easy giard)
Dugout Cam / Dog Pile Cam Guy - you hold the camera for a dog pile, you get a B
Everyone in the official highlight video:
Our Most Viewed Michigan smokeshow of all time – obviously she gets a beef
Central Michigan – this guy isn’t even on Michigan but he still gets a beef because (1) hilarious and (2) he’s from Michigan so close enough.
Pres – I’m not writing a Michigan Is Going To Omaha blog and not giving Pres a beef. That’s just good business.
Omaha – The real winner here is the City of Omaha *waits for applause* … *doesn’t get* … you guys are special
Personally I’m here for the tailgating.
