Michigan has a habit of losing (see Buckeyes Wolverines: Fourth & Short Trip Report Recap and Final Four San Antonio: Go Blue! Left Blue). Even still, I have a habit of following them around, no matter the sport. That’s why when Michigan reached the College World Series, I started looking at flights to Omaha. (Did you know that the CWS is always held in Omaha? I did not.)
Fortunately, living in Puerto Rico, the flight was not convenient and the resulting loss was made more bearable knowing that I didn’t waste points, cash, or points and cash on another second place finish. It’s a great achievement for Michigan to get this far. Their last appearance was in 1984. It would’ve been great to finally win at something since my faith in Michigan football is very low (Meyer Quits: Michigan Should Fire Harbaugh) and the best coach in college basketball, Beilein, is now a Cavalier. The Michigan baseball jersey is sold out. However, I will buy one anyway so when they return in 35 years, no one can call me a bandwagon hopper.
Still Blue (my mood, not the cheer)!
