Super Regional Notebook: Fan behind home plate captures attention with hand gesture

“I didn’t even know what ‘IG’ was,” Lee said. “I had to ask my 17-year-old [son]. He said I was ‘IG famous’ and I didn’t know what that meant. I thought it meant Immunoglobulin Class G, but it turns out that means Instagram. It’s a silly thing. It’s good for baseball. I love this team and if people want to stick around and be goofy with me, so be it.”

Spoiler: He's an Aggie.

Well 23 years and counting since the overall 1 seed wins CWS. Tenn out.

Down go my Vols.

NERDS!!!!!

Don't know about all of that. But the middle finger while running the bases was definitely... something. That kid deserves to lose.

I may be alone here, I thought that was one of the funniest things I'd ever seen, assuming he wasn't flipping off anyone in particular and that's just how he expresses joy.

That team has apparently embraced being heels this season. Fans had shirts printed up for this series that said "Classless vs Catholics".

Because Cal is damned to never have present day success I can only post about past glory.

Win your local trivia night when someone asks "Who won the first College World Series".

In Other Sports(?) news, I played Magic The Gathering with a Cal Bear or two last night.

...the Aggies didn't win that one.

In my anecdotal experience not just personal but talking to others, Cal grads are on extremes.. either they are huge Cal athletics fans like me or don't even know where the stadium is in Berkeley... very few casual or even bandwagon fans.

Where did these land on that spectrum?

As with every other IRL interaction in my entire life, Cal athletics were not discussed.

How did you know they were Cal grads then? If you were wearing A&M and they didn't bring up the Holiday Bowl then I think I know the answer to my question

Okay, you got me there - the Holiday Bowl has been discussed in my life, IRL. I had momentarily succeeded in blocking out the memory when I made my previous post. Thanks for undoing years of therapy and psychotropic drugs.

Anyway, it was a husband and wife, and she mentioned something about Berkeley. Never found out if the hubs had gone there as well and that's where they met. I was way too concerned with the army of dragons she was building thanks to Miirym.

Ags are currently leading the longhorns 6-2 in the fourth inning of an elimination game in the men's College World Series!

Tough play. Dude clearly had no idea the ball popped out and the play was still live.

Damn shame them longhorns chirped about how long we've been winless in Omaha and then broke our streak by going winless themselves.
