I have to admit that when my boss told me I was going to Omaha, I was a reluctant. As a city, I had little interest in seeing what Omaha had to offer. Well, after two days here, I am man enough to admit I was wrong. Omaha is a cool little town. The people are friendly, the climate is great and the downtown Old Market area is as sheik and trendy as anything any big Eastern city has to offer. It has a slew of great restaurants — awesome steak — and some great little shops. And that’s just the business end, we haven’t even gotten to the baseball yet.
I’m here for the College World Series and this city certainly gets into hosting this event. Everywhere you look there is a reminder that the series is in town. The
people get excited about it the series and the fact that Nebraska is playing this year makes it all the more exciting. You can really feel the energy as you arrive at Rosenblatt Stadium and today [Thursday] during the open workouts the fans were really into it, screaming and shouting, interacting with the players at every opportunity.
I’m anxious for games to start because I think this is going to be a great deal of fun. See you as the rest of the tournament unfolds. — Kevin C.
