Death To Two Legends and a Newborn

This is going to be one of the last posts I write using my 2003 Dell Inspiron 5100 laptop. I finally ordered a new one. I probably could gut it out for another year or two, but things are getting pretty frustrating on the Internets surfing side of things. So it is going to be a sad day. If dogs age 7 years for every one human year, then computers age 15. Which would put this computer at 105 years old. It is time. I laughed the other day when wondering if 250 GB of memory was going to be enough for a new computer, and then realizing that this one has 40 (!!).

The last College World Series at Rosenblatt Stadium in Omaha starts today. I only lived in Omaha for three years, and only attended parts of two CWS, but the memories were fond. But the stadium itself wasn't really that great. It was quaint, held alot of history, and the neighborhood surrounding turned into one big party. But I'm guessing the new stadium will figure it out. As long as they continue to make tickets cheap, and there are places for drunk college students to hang out between games, and places for drunk southern rednecks from Louisiana and Texas to park their RVs for weeks at a time, it will be fine. I look forward to getting back down there some time. I had a pretty great time when the La Crosse crew descended on Omaha. Even though I got super hungover and pissy.

The newborn that died is me having any interest in soccer. Good work FIFA. Are they fucking serious with that call on the U.S. yesterday? And I say "that call" because nobody knows what the call was. I guess it is a foul to have your arms pinned behind your back? Fuck soccer.
