National champions: Oregon State Beavers shut out Arkansas to win College World Series title,
I've been a Oregon (Ducks) fan since going there undergrad, and playing basketball for a year. Oregon State for decades were our main rivals. In recent years the successful football team has regressed to the mean (mediocrity).
My goddaughter, Helen, was clearly destined for the academic world since she was a toddler. She could probably gone to any undergrad she wanted. Where did she pick? OSU. As an aside, she's currently finishing up her PhD at Cal, having turned down a full ride at MIT.
Anyway, I sent her a message this morning congratulating OSU. Man, that hurt.
