Beavers set to defend title

There's no joy on Jamboree Road tonight as defending champion Oregon State eliminated UC Irvine from the College World Series with a convincing 7-1 win tonight in Omaha.

The Beavers will play either Rice or North Carolina in a best of three championship series starting Saturday. The Owls and Tar Heels play each other tomorrow evening at 4 pm PT for the right to be OSU's opponent. Oregon State beat North Carolina last year in three games.

I'm almost on Jamboree right now, yet I feel a strange sense of joy.

I've often wondered who would win a battle in the wild between a real beaver and a real anteater.

I would assume the anteater would win since it has a serious size advantage. But the beaver could prevail if water were involved.

If not for the Ice Age, it would be no contest!

The MIT baseball team also used to be called the Beavers. Now they are supposedly the Engineers, though some of MIT's teams are still called the Beavers for reasons I am too dim to understand. Safe to say however, MIT will not be playing in the CWS any time soon.

Caltech has similarly alternated between Engineers and Beavers. I believe they prefer Beavers.

Beavers are supposed to be hard-working engineer types that can construct dams.

I have a lot of friends at UC Irvine so I was rooting for the Anteaters.

Truthfully, I'm not a big college baseball fan, though if I did have to pick a favorite team, it would probably be Cal State Fullerton.

In his blog, Jayson Stark called the schools "Cal Irvine" and "Cal Fullerton."

Not cool Jayson. Not cool.
