Back at the JOC for the third game of a three-game series. We were going for the sweep. And we got it. It wasn’t as exciting as yesterday, particularly because the first-base ump warned the student section against “verbal attacks on individual players”. Which meant we couldn’t say anything too nasty about anyone or we’d be tossed. That, combined with the fact that it was a blowout, made this largely unmemorable.
There was once again a reduced crowd in the K-9 Unit due to many fans being in Houston for the Final Four. But the atmosphere was still great today. Even though we got all 8 of pour runs in the first two innings, the student crowd stayed in it for the entire game, and cheered the Huskies on.
So bring out the brooms, because we swept the Red Storm. On a side note, what exactly is a Red Storm? Are they named after the Great Red Spot on Jupiter or something? They used to be the Redmen until that was deemed offensive to Native Americans, but seriously, Red Storm? Couldn’t you think of anything better? RedHawks? Red Rovers? Red Barons? Come on now.
Tonight our Women play in the Final Four. Tomorrow night our men’s basketball team goes for the Championship. And Tuesday, our women (hopefully) go for the championship. I should make a full post summarizing the tournament when the Final UConn game is played. It’s something to look forward to. But for now, Go Huskies!
Edit: After updating the Game Log, I noticed that this was the 50th UConn win that I have witnessed in person! Awesome. Go Huskies!
