Lafayette Vs USC

At work several of my coworkers are rabid fans of the USC Gamecocks. Today they play my alma mater, the UL Lafeyette Ragin Cajuns in their season opener. I generally care very little about football but I do hope my boys pull out the upset and win this game because it will make Tuesday at the office very interesting if they do. As someone who has heard way more Steve Spurrier talk than I care to ever hear, I’d love to see USC get their asses handed back to them. It’s not likely, but I’d love it.

One Out of Three Ain’t That Good

I had three teams I was rooting for in the field of 64 of the NCAA baseball tournament: Georgia Tech, University of Louisiana at Lafayette, and Coastal Carolina. All three teams made it to the finals of their respective regionals, but the latter two teams didn’t make it. Both were coming up from the losers bracket so that’s a tough row to hoe, having to win twice in a day to move on.

At least I have a team in the super-regionals. There were six South Carolina teams in the tournament, and only Clemson moved on. Ouch.
