That is how the TV business works sometimes. One minute you have weekend plans, the next minute....your getting shipped out to go cover one of the best events on the face of the planet. In this case, it's the College World Series. KGW had the pleasure of being the only Portland station in Omaha last year when the Beavs were the CWS darlings. Yes, we love it when an exclusive grand plan like that comes together! Now, OSU must be considered the CWS giants!
Brian Warner (we call him "The Ace" for his incredible camera work) and I are heading to the heartland to go see if the Beavs can do it again. If they just stay the course, anything is possible. In a way, I fear UNC and Rice. They are two sleeping baseball giants right now. But the last thing I would do if I'm in Vegas--or anywhere betting is taking place--is bet against OSU. I've said on this blog before....but Pat Casey is truly a genius!! If he brings home a second straight National Championship.....Bob DeCarolis should pony up a brand new contract for him!!!
NCAA rules prohibit us from "blogging" during the game....but I'll try my best to sneak a few in here and there. Even you Duck fans gotta enjoy this a little, don't ya? It's awesome exposure for our state!!
