Watching The Irish At The College World Series

On Sunday we went down to the newly minted Charles Schwab Field to watch Notre Dame Fighting Irish battle the Oklahoma Sooners at the College World Series (CWS).   This was Notre Dame's third appearance at the CWS, the last time being twenty years ago.  They beat the number one seed Tennessee to get to Omaha.

A packed stadium in downtown Omaha.
(Most hotels in Omaha make their profits during CWS.)
It was a hot evening with the heat index hovering around 100℉ (37.8℃) but there was a breeze that helped and the broiling ended once the sun went down.  The Wife indulged with peanuts in the shell while I went for the Cookie Dough Dippin' Dots.  While I was hot and sweaty it was not nearly as bad as i expected it to be.

We had a good time even tho, in the end, Notre Dame didn't come through.  This was their second game during the CWS and their first loss.  It is a double elimination series so they have a chance of continuing.  Their next game, against Texas A&M, is today.
