Right now I’m watching Fresno State in the College World Series.
I have 2 connections here:
When I lived in Omaha [1984 – 1992 – all our kids were born there], it was always a fun time of year when the CWS would come around. Roosenblat Stadium in South Omaha would be packed. It was a fun, festive atmosphere. There is something pure about college baseball.
The other connection of course is Fresno. We lived there from 1992 – 2000 when we came to Journey here in San Diego. Fresno is a great town. I know, I’ve heard & believe me, they have heard, all the little jokes. But it’s a great town! Great people. On most days you can see the Sierra’s jetting up, capped with snow year round. Fresno is one of the 5 or 6 largest cities in CA, but it still feels like a college town. They are really into FSU sports. Our church was close to the campus. We had a great college ministry with Joe Broussard & later Josh Hawley.
So, the Bulldogs are trying to be the lowest seated college team to win a national championship in ANY sport!!! So for all my homies in Fresno – FRES-YES! GO DOGS!!!
UPDATE: FRESNO… CITY OF CHAMPIONS
DOGS (the right dogs) WIN!
I am sure that people in Fresno are amped! It would be a great time to be in the Valley!
