The University of South Carolina Gamecocks are the new national champions of college baseball! Thank you, thank you. I am happy to receive congratulations for my alma mater. Carolina (the only Carolina) defeated UCLA (actually swept them), coming from behind in eleven innings for a 2-1 victory. For the few of you who may not know about my school, USC (the real USC) is the equivalent of Philadelphia in sports, only a bit grimmer. To win a national championship is a quest that generations of fans dream about and agonize over as we fail time and again. Not only did we win the championship but defeat our arch-rivals (Clemson) in two games to get to the championship series. Ah......life is good.
