College World Series

When we found out that the Razorbacks were going to be playing in the College World Series we decided we needed to go Omaha and support them!  We debated it for awhile and I'm so glad that we finally decided to go because we had an absolute blast.  I wish that we had more time to spend there but everyone to go back to work today.  We left Saturday morning at 4 in the morning and we got to Omaha around 10:00.  When we made it there it started raining and we weren't able to go see the old College World Series Stadium, Rosenblatt.  They wouldn't let anyone in since it was storming and we didn't have time to wait around for it to stop.  We got some pictures from the outside but I'm a little sad we didn't get to go in.  I've always wanted to go to Rosenblatt stadium and it's really sad that they are going to be demolishing it in a few days.

After we got done viewing Rosenblatt we headed over to the new stadium and found some parking underneath an overpass.  Since it was still raining we went to a local sports bar and got some really good food.  By the time we were finished with lunch it had thankfully stopped raining and we were able to go to the fan zone and then to the game.  The new stadium is really nice and our seats were awesome.  We paid more to have seats in the shade but I'm so thankful that we did.  I walked around a little bit during the game and it was so hot in the sun.

Bases loaded!

There were close to 24,000 people in attendance and the majority of them were Razorback fans.

The two Greg's who we went with.
I'm so glad that the Razorbacks won their first game and we play again tonight against South Carolina.  I'm hoping that we can pull out another win!  I can now say that I've been to the College World Series before!  After the game we went to a local Italian steakhouse and eat some really yummy food and then drove back to our hotel room which was two hours away.  We made one last stop at Rosenblatt to say goodbye to Omaha and the College World Series. WPS!

I think this is how we all felt on the way home!
