So I hear there was some kind of perfect game or something earlier this week. Also, the MLB team from Orange County (that is not part of Los Angeles) had a nice series against actual team from Los Angeles. The actual team from LA is having a great early season BTW. All that stuff (I can't stay interested in a season that's 160+ games long) need to be put aside this afternoon, when our Bruins chase an elusive national title in baseball, opening up fourth college world series appearance in Obama.

Ryan as usual has been all over UCLA baseball, giving you every detail there is to know about the program. However, if you are jonesing for some tradmed bits here are some highlights of folks around the country (especially from New York) are saying about this afternoon's game v. the Stonybrook Seawolves:

  • Sam Strong from the Daily News has more sober outlook on the situation about UCLA taking on "Omaha's darling." I like Coach Savage's cool headed perspective of "embracing" the whole scene around the Seawolves and just going out there to "play."
  • Saving the best for last, Peter Yoon from ESPNLA has an overview of how the Bruins have some"unfinished business" to take care of in Omaha as UCLA "comes in as a national power with something to prove after coming up short in the 2010 national championship series."
  • The first pitch is scheduled for 2 p.m. (PT)/4 p.m. (CT) for this afternoon. We will see you all at the open thread.

    GO BRUINS.
