I can't tell you how proud I am to be a Gamecock today. Those two games were unreal, well actually all the games in Omaha, were incredible.
I tried to watch as much of the games as I could. I have a sleep problem ( I need it.) and when the games go after 10:30pm, I can't keep my eyes open. Luckily Monday, nights game was replayed yesterday and I was able to pick up in the 9th inning and see those amazing plays and watch us win.
I was determined last night to stay up, but again, 10:30pm rolled around and my eyes rolled closed. I was getting really stressed, so it was probably better that I took a little nap. Charlie woke me up for the last out (reason 7697 why I love him) and I was so happy.
Is it not the best thing to see that dog pile? What other sport can you do that in. I don't think football would be a good dog pile sport and I think in basketball dog piling on the hardwood would probably hurt, a lot!
This year we had a bat boy named Charlie, and if you watch the dog pile you see him trying to find the best time to jump in. It just brought tears to my eyes, that this 13 year old boy who is in remission from cancer was able to jump into the dog pile and celebrate with the boys! In the picture you can see him off to the left.
This morning we told Henry about the Gamecock win and he asked to watch it on the T. Charlie told him we can try and find a replay of it, tonight. Henry was so excited he just started shouting GO GAMECOCKS!
Great Win, Great Game, Great day to be a GAMECOCK!
