YOU SON OF A BITCH.
What a moment for the boys in that dugout. Out of the loser's bracket and into the National Championship against Florida.
And what a moment for the 50,000 LSU fans that take over Omaha. The reason Omaha rebuilt all their roads and invested heavily in public safety is because they have to be prepared for this kind of moment. Tommy Fucking Tanks could've easily just sent this place into a full blown state of emergency.
Nobody in college baseball deserves it more than LSU fans if you consider the last decade+ of Omaha results. LSU is like 50% of the local economy in years they don't make the tournament. It's such a caravan of diehards. It's impossible not to love and be happy for these people.
That's the good stuff.
And it's exactly why you transfer if you're Tommy Tanks.
While I have your attention:
what a duel
Paul Skenes and Rhett Lowder are just two of 4,300 division-1 pitchers. Also probably the two best and the showed it tonight. Lucky matchup to witness even if Wembanyana dunked in our faces with the ratings. Classic Wembanyana. (I gotta type that name to remember it.)
Anyways. Before I forget.
Important reminder for all you
youngsters abusive amateur baseball coaches out there: Pitch counts matter for a reason.
"He felt good so we let it ride." - a man named Coach
Paul Skenes has enough testosterone to impregnate a mid-40s, captivity-born-n-bred, silverback gorilla. Does he even call his own pitches? Fuck it. Tommy John's waiting anyways.
120 pitches in back to back starts when he pitches once every 7 days is really aggressive. I'll let you guys argue merits. I just want to point out it's extremely aggressive.
NOBODY CARES DUDE
Great time to be an LSU fan. Great time to be in Omaha. Great time to be Tommy Tanks.
