The Final Battle of the Bulldogs

The College World Series comes to an end tonight (unless it rains) as Fresno State and Georgia play the final game in their best of three final series.

UGA won the opening game 7-6 with a four-run eighth inning after Fresno State had scored three times to take a 6-3 lead.

On Tuesday, Georgia bolted out to a 5-0 lead, but Fresno State answered with a 6-run third to take the lead. Georgia tied it up in the fourth, but Fresno State scored five time in the bottom of the fourth and then poured it on for a 19-10 win.

Neither team is particularly loaded in the pitching department with only Georgia closer Joshua Fields being a standout. The surfeit of runs in this series isn't a case of aluminum bats as it is bad pitching.

So after today one of these fight songs will reign supreme:

My prediction. Bet on the Bulldogs. The ones who wear red.

Georgia's song bears resemblence to the "Battle Hymn of the Republic."

Georgia's fight song is the same melody as the Battle Hymn of the Republic.

Which is a bit odd.

What is so odd about that?

Hopefully by the next time I see Gordon Beckham on national TV, he has a better haircut.

They're dancing on whatever the main street of Fresno is.

Besides being the Raisin Capital of the World, Fresno also ranked #1 in the Brooking Institution's 2005 study of US cities with the highest proportion of residents living in areas of concentrated poverty, ahead of New Orleans, Miami, and Atlanta.

This was right after Hurricane Katrina, and quite a few people in the news industry were surprised, to say the least.
