The next few days will be my annual dash between baseball and women's basketball. I'll start Wednesday with the baseball double-header with Creighton beginning at Noon. Following that game, I'm on the road to Atlanta so I can catch a 7:20 flight to Orlando to do tomorrow's CUSA tournament opener between the Lady Tigers and Tulsa. If the Lady Tigers are eliminated before Sunday, I'm back on the plane to Atlanta, then a short drive over to Athens to catch up with baseball and their series with Georgia. I'll be hopping around, but it's one of my favorite weeks of the year. I could end up doing six games in five days in three different cities.
On a somber note, Wednesday's baseball broadcast will be the first game I've called since the passing of Dr. Robert McDowell, the only general manager that our campus station, WUMR, has ever had. Like me, countless broadcast professionals learned under McDowell and he was a friend and mentor to us all. I'll be thinking of you during the broadcast Dr. Bob.
