Let There Be A Liveblog

-- It seems that tonight's State/UNC baseball game will be televised, so I will be liveblogging. I've never done baseball; if I utter something that Joe Morgan might say, this blog will self-destruct.

The Florida Times-Union has a story on the rivalry:

"We really hate each other," Mangum said after N.C. State opened the ACC Tournament with a 6-1 loss to Virginia on Wednesday. "I mean, really hate each other. There's no other way to describe it."

-- Somewhat related: here's a piece on the value of the stolen base in college baseball vs. MLB.

-- This could be old news, but I just discovered that Manny Lawson is writing for the Niners' website. This is from January:

Speaking of which, I almost died the other day. I was taking out the trash and we have to break down the boxes because otherwise the trash people will not pick them up. So I’m breaking down this box and I get a cardboard cut right on my finger. If I didn’t rush up to the bathroom, soak it, peroxide, Neosporin and band-aid it, I could have died. Paper cuts are the leading killer out there. People don’t know this, but it’s true. They get infected real easily, turn green, orange and blue and whatever gets cut, falls off. Seriously.

Can we get this man a blog? I think the world needs a Manny Lawson blog.

-- posted some new photos of the softball complex. By the way, you know you've been away from campus for too long when you see a building and wonder what the hell it is and where the hell it came from. In the background of this photo you can see the new Carmichael Gym expansion. I didn't even know the gym was expanding.
