Miami Hurricanes and the CWS


Canes backed against wall

"After losing to second-seeded Rice Monday night, Miami needs to win three elimination games in a row to reach the College World Series championship round."

Ahh, the College World Series. What can be better than hanging out on a summer afternoon in front of the second greatest college sporting event in the world? Only watching the Miami Hurricanes pummel the Oregon State Beavers to move into the winners bracket of the CWS.

Losing to Rice last night, however, puts the Canes in the loser's bracket. But it is in the loser's bracket that the true value of the CWS format really shines. Every inning, every pitch, every play is potentially a season ending dance of skill, pressure, and guts.

There is nothing more incredible than watching kids, college kids who love the game, play the game they love. Whether you like baseball or not, watching the College World Series is an inspirational event matched only by March Madness.

Go Canes!!
