More waiting around and more bad weather. The Missouri River which runs between Omaha and Council Bluffs, Iowa was really on the rise by now.
While waiting around we went to the Strategic Air Command Museum that is about 30 miles from Omaha. We were not too impressed. SAC has one heck of a history and story to tell but the museum was just a bunch of static display aircraft. Should have gone to the Zoo.
Wednesday – and by now TCU has also fallen into the losers bracket and FSU has to play them again. We had spent the last few days laughing at the “Fear the Frogs” t-shirts. Seriously, who the hell is TCU in the baseball world and why would anyone fear a frog? We were about to find out – for the second time. FSU looked good early and by the 5th inning had a 7-2 lead, 7-3 in the 7th. We really did not have our hopes up – we have seen the 'Noles melt down too often. Then came the 8th inning –the 8 run 8th inning - an inning that will live in infamy (apologies to FDR). I can't talk about it – probably the biggest comeback in World Series history. FSU lost 11-7. How the hell do you give up a 2 out grand slam? And then another hit and another home run to make matters worse? Oh well –
All in all we had a great time and are glad we went. And no matter what – The SEMINOLES beat the gators at the World Series and we were there!! And – most importantly - Monte and Shelley were on ESPN close to the bottom of the 5th inning of the Wednesday game with TCU.
