Think Queen...We Are the Champions!

A week ago today my South Carolina Gamecock baseball team would be preparing to play their second game of the CWS Championship series against UCLA.

All of us kept thinking would it be amazing if we won this thing. Nearing midnight in the bottom of the 11th inning. Whit Merrifield got the winning hit scoring my buddy Scott Wingo and we WON!

We are the 2010 CWS National Champions!!!

This is the first major Championship for my University. And I still get chills thinking about it.

The team came back from Omaha on (last) Wednesday and we welcomed them home. Thursday the Governor declared it Gamecock Baseball National Champions Day. Friday the city of Columbia held a parade in their honor. The team received the Key to the City. The Mayor also declared it Ray Tanner and Gamecock Baseball Day. (I stood behind the team during the presentation after the parade.)

This has been so surreal and amazing. I'm so proud of my team/friends. Congratulations guys! GO COCKS!

(I also love that now my entire summer wardrobe will be National Championship apparel =D)
