Here's my agenda for today: Watch as many baseball games as I can, then watch the NCAA championship.
Does this correspond with yours?
There have been many times in my life – OK, twice – when I took the day off work, plopped down at a sports bar, sipped on water, Diet Coke, whatever and waited for a group of friends to arrive to watch the title game.
While saving a table, I was able to watch 800-plus pitches on the first day of major league baseball. Then there was the fun of watching two teams play as hard as they could to win a national title.
• Tonight those two teams will be Ohio State and defending champion Florida. The game begins on CBS at 6. If you have a preference, let me know by clicking the comment link.
• There was some local college action with area schools yesterday, and we covered it here. There were two big baseball wins: Gonzaga over USD behind Shadle Park grad Brandon Harmon to win the series 2-1, and WSU earning its first Pac-10 win of the season in its sixth try.
