Grand slams. No-hitters. Walk-offs. Beer showers. This year’s opening weekend in college baseball had it all – and it was awesome. On Friday I made a quick trip home from West Palm Beach (where I’m currently working for the Houston Astros *pinches myself*) to return to my alma mater to see the Alabama baseball team in action, and to see the start of the Greg Goff era. It was an awesome weekend at the Joe as the Bama boys began their 2017 season.
Hey guys! I’ve finally returned to Tuscaloosa after spending some time in one of my favorite cities, Nashville, TN. I’m already excited to go back! My purpose for this little day trip was to receive my training for the Music City Bowl. This will be my second year working with the Music City Bowl, and I couldn’t be more excited! The Nashville Sports Council is a great group of people who put on phenomenal events each year, and fans definitely won’t be disappointed with this year’s bowl festivities.

Last night, Saturday Night Live opened their show with a sketch making fun of Alabama football. Pro wrestler John Cena played the part of an Alabama football player giving his final science presentation. While he states that the main reason he is at Alabama is because of his “abilities on the football field”, he earnestly insists that he takes his academics “incredibly seriously”. In response, one of the teachers tells the player that they will treat him “like any other student”, and then proceeds to thank him for signing his Alabama hat. Another teacher makes a comment, wearing crimson and white face paint, saying light-heartedly, “Absolutely. Don’t you expect any favors from us.”
The Chicago Cubs’ World Series win over the Cleveland Indians on Wednesday marked a historical moment for the franchise. But it also marked a terrifying realization: We are now officially in the offseason. That’s right, we’ve entered that time of year again. No college baseball, no minor league baseball, and no major league baseball. No sounds of a ball cracking against a bat, no 7th inning stretch, and no ballpark food. Scary right? But no worries! I came up with a list of five things to keep you busy (or somewhat sane) during the offseason.
