Go Jackets

I’m listening to the WREK streaming feed of Georgia Tech playing Wake Forest in the ACC baseball tournament game. As it happens, the guy calling the game is my old friend Richard. He was the sports guy when we were both young undergrads at GT in the mid 80’s. Last year when GT made the college world series I was strongly considering just getting on a plane and flying to Omaha. Not only could I root for my boys, but I would have been able to visit Omaha, which was a big deal when I was a little kid in farm towns in Nebraska and Kansas. I’ve said that if they do it this year, I won’t thing about it I’ll just do it. Last year I was really rooting for University of Lousiana – Lafayette to also make it. Then I’d have both my alma mater represented. I’d dig that.
