  • Will Bolt has been hired?
  • What’s Poppin (brought to you by Barney Insurance)

MLB came to Omaha last night with Royals/Tigers…how was it received and will it come back?

-The two teams aren’t exactly stellar this year, with the Royals well below .500, and the Tigers not as far below but still not a very good team. It was a great crowd for the game…will this continue ahead of the College World Series going forward?

-It’s really unlikely it would ever happen, but does high attendance for many events in Nebraska ever give a professional league pause in maybe considering bringing a pro franchise to Omaha to support?

-Also, congrats to Raptors on NBA Championship…

– Major League Baseball is coming to Nebraska for the first time ever tonight with Royals/Tigers in Omaha…will any other league of that type come to the state for a regular season game?

-We’ve seen both Lincoln and Omaha host preseason games for the NBA, and the Royals have been in Omaha before to play against the Storm Chasers in the preseason…but never for a regular season game

-It’s hard to expect a team to give up a home game to come play in Omaha, and why should you blame them for that? With that being said, is this a one-time thing or could this play into something down the road like this happening again in some sport? Which is the most likely? And are we treating this like the CWS where we don’t care in Lincoln because it’s not our city?

  • Kumar Rocker throws a no-hitter
  • Blog Jog (brought to you by Barney Insurance)

College World Series starts this weekend…will Lincoln ever care about the event until Nebraska baseball is back in it?

-It’s the yearly question we ask—why does the rest of the state not welcome the CWS as much as Omaha does? It’s great for publicity on ESPN and gets lots of people to come in…why does Lincoln and other areas not care for it a ton? Jake is guilty of it, too. Is it because college baseball isn’t as interesting as football/basketball?

Final thoughts on Huskers in B1G Baseball Tourney / Memorial Day Weekend Plans?

-Is Nebraska going to take the Big Ten Tourney title? Are you going to go to any games this weekend?

-Is Sip planning on having any wild parties this holiday weekend?
