I've always heard Omaha was a nice place. Though I live in the state underneath it, I've only been to Nebraska once in my life intentionally and one other time on the way to South Dakota. Mostly I hate Nebraska. Northern Kansas is gorgeous and green, but the second you cross into Nebraska everything looks dead. Except Omaha, or so I'm told. You don't have to take my word for it though...

That's Justin Maxwell and Mike Moustakas enjoying their AAA demotion by spending some quality time at the go-cart track. Moose infamously told reporters in the Spring of 2013 that he refuses to watch film of his at-bats, so what better way to kill time? I've heard there's also a zoo or something.

There is one really cool thing about Omaha. There used to be two, but they tore the second one down.

No, I wasn't talking about the Omaha Zoo.
Thankfully Omaha has held onto the College World Series which is set to begin in just a couple of weeks.

Someday I'll get my lazy ass up to Omaha to see it in person so I can finally call myself a baseball fan. In the meantime, I'll be celebrating it by playing Autographed Cards' College World Series Contest! You should too. It's basically a pick'em contest for some sweet prizes. Head on over and check it out... unless you're too busy riding gocarts, in which case I completely understand.

  1. Omaha is great. I went to school at Creighton, "host school" of the CWS, so I definitely got to enjoy that experience. I haven't been back since they moved downtown from Rosenblatt, but I hear it's still as fun. You definitely need to make a trip. If you do, find the LSU fans - they go every year regardless if the school actually makes the CWS - and they are an absolute blast.
