CWS: I'm with Tanner, one of these loser bracket teams really needs to win today.

By Eric Sorenson - June 21, 2006

I know. I know. I'm not s'posed to cheer for anybody and I don't. But I would really like to see some baseball tomorrow, so if Fullerton or Oregon State obliges me in that capacity, fine.

In the dumb move of the day, and in an attempt to not wear the same clothes over and over again, I decided to wear jeans today. Come to find that my tickets are for seats in Section N, which stands for "No chance for shade. Temps right now are in the 88-89 range and the humidity feels stronger today than any other day this week. What was I thinking?

It's Daniel Bard (8-3, 3.59) vs. Wes Roemer (13-1, 2.16) in game one today. Carolina must hope for a better effort from Bard than he gave in the second game of the Super Regionals at Alabama, where he went just 2.0 innings, walked two and gave up three hits. Roemer must shake off a short amount of rest since he just threw 8.1 innings on Friday and threw to a couple of batters in yesterday's win over Clemson.

Another thing to think about- I wonder if the three days rest for UNC will turn out to be three days rust. And likewise, will the Titans' three games in five days keep them in a groove or show they are tired? Should be fun.
