Grand Slam!!!

So for those you living in a box, or perhaps not interested in college baseball – you missed one of the best grand slams in the College World Series last night.

TCU baseball has proved yet again that it deserves to be at the College World Series. A lot of announcers and perhaps local spectators are wondering – who is this team out of the Mountain West Conference? And how did it even get here? Well, for starters, TCU beat the University of Texas during the Super Regionals. TWICE. In Austin….So, yeah.

Anyway, the Horned Frogs have been putting up quite a fight at this year’s College World Series and it’s been wonderful to watch. As you can see here, TCU made an impressive first time debut in Omaha, becoming one of the few teams to win its first- appearance game.

Now, back to last night. I’m at a elegant, chic Italian restaurant for one of my friend’s birthdays. We’re slowly leaving the restaurant and of course walk through the bar on our way out. Matt Curry steps up to the plate with bases loaded in the top of the 8th inning. THE BAR IS SILENT…

First pitch…ball one.
We breathe a sigh of relief.

Second pitch…swings – foul ball.
Again, we remember to breathe.

Third pitch…swing and a miss.
We cringe and then begin quietly praying.

Fourth pitch…dirt ball.
We start screaming at the TV, while still standing in the elegant restaurant’s bar. People begin leaving their tables to crowd in the bar.

Fifth pitch…high and outside.
We are all freaking out and are constantly looking away, then looking back, then looking away. All while quietly praying.

Final pitch…the whole bar literally does not breathe for a full two seconds.
And then…GRAND SLAM!!!! http://espn.go.com/blog/sportscenter/post/_/id/61741/sportscenters-top-plays-50
