Another reason to love Memorial Weekend

I know this has basically become a IndyCar blog since Furious hasn't posted in like 6 months but for those of you who have read this thing for a while may already love the end of May but another reason I love Memorial weekend is because its conference tournament time in collegiate baseball. and then next week starts what is easily my favorite playoff format of all sports.

but what makes it fun are upsets of course and you can't get any better than today's 8-2 shellacking of #7 Rice by a 24-33 UAB team, but even more for things like this as reported by Baseball America:

"What a finish in Baton Rouge. Texas Southern, which went just 7-17 in the Southwestern Conference during the regular season, scored five runs in the bottom of the eighth to steal a 12-11 win over two-time defending champion Prairie View A&M in the SWAC title game Monday. So the Tigers will head to regionals with a 16-32 overall record. "

and then if thats not big enough they followup with our potential for next week....

"If Texas Southern can somehow stun Rice in the first game of the (potential) Houston regional (maybe I’m going out on a limb here, but I don’t think so), that will have to qualify as one of the greatest upsets in college baseball history."

Happy May everyone!
