11 Days of Heaven

Virginia is going to Omaha to play in the College World Series. Eleven days of baseball, from June 13th to the 23rd, two or three times a day. If were are lucky they will be playing on the 23rd in the bottom of the ninth. I've never been to the CWS, but I know Omaha. It is a trail town about the size of Richmond. The Pony Express used to start west from there. Imagine 20 games in 11 days. Try to tell me that baseball doesn't have an economic impact. Omaha would go kicking and screaming before letting this get away from them.

Virginia plays LSU at 6:00 tonight on ESPN.
