    Well, of course I’m pulling for Coastal. Why wouldn’t or shouldn’t I? They were there in 2010. Current T.B. Rays player Taylor Motter was part of that squad…. From a Rays fan: watch them make Motter into another Zobrist. The kid is alright…

    So I’m sitting in a beach bar with the better half, and see Owings get off the snide. TT gets tight, and there ya go.

    Regardless of how tonight or the rest of the bracket plays out, I have to say that I’m very impressed by Coastal’s mettle. Those guys got their minds right, no doubt.

    I don’t pretend to be an English Literature expert. But I did OK. Chanticleer was the name of the cock of the walk in Chaucer’s Nun Priest tale. Google & read it.

    The old boy saved his feathers & lived a long life with his 7 wives… particularly Peretelone.

    They crowed this morning & they live to get a shot at crowing again.

    My wife said I jinxed them by adopting them. Headed to Myrtle Beach today…..at the beginning of the game, I told her Gary Gillmore might beat us There.

    Go Chang’s… they are a step above your typical SC cock.

    ‘Zona fights off elimination, downs OkieSt 9-3. Same two tee it up again tomorrow, winner moves to Champ’s Series.
    Coastal/TCU get going with the nightcap in a little over an hour.

    Also, fun fact…Duke’s annual yearbook is entitled The Chanticleer. I learned that today quite by accident.

    Because they all think that they’re the ‘cock of the walk’?

    Who would have thought the last two teams that eliminated the Pack would be facing each other to advance? Only happens to the Pack. I guess this is what irony feels like.

    That seems as apt an explanation as any.

    CC is going to make sure they fight to the end. Both teams are pushing the envelope on the base path.

    My brother-in-law played baseball for Coastal back in the day so I’m all in with the Super Chickens.

    Coastal fights off elimination, downs TCU 4-1. Same two tee it up again tomorrow, winner moves to Champ’s Series.

    Stop me if you think that you’ve heard this one before.

    Can’t do the wide turn on a drag.

    Chicken BIG is in the house. I’d love to see them hang 20 on TCU.

    So it’s Coastal and ‘Zona. Best 2 out of 3 for the hardware, beginning on Monday.
    Nicely done beach chickens, nicely done.

    Super Chickens move on. Thank goodness we don’t have to listen to that TCU screech any more.

    As I was watching coastal hanging on to the lead my mind went back to our game with TCU and the meltdown we suffered. The Chants were able to “git er done!” My hope is Beckwith will be ready to go on Monday.

    Yogi, TexPack, Wufpacker, et. al. I am at a time share in South Myrtle Beach. I THINK that I heard a roar from the campus last night….or it might have been the echo of the blood curling rooster imitation that I did. Woke up my GD…

    I, too, went back into the archives and pulled up the box score on the NCSU v TCU game last year. I could not remember the damage, but it was (memory fading since last night) 6 runs in the 6th….then we let them score a run in each subsequent inning and lost in the 10th.

    I was having the same nightmare….TCU, as we ALL know, is explosive. Someone posted a comment on another site that we would take the “But for ONE strike…” approach since we were one of the two teams (to date) to BEAT the Chants in post 2016 season.

    I said that it would NOT be….”The STATE Way” and that we would NOT hang a banner with an asterick crowing about how we NEARLY defeated them and tossed THEM out of the CWS run….but if the Ump’s had not wanted to spend more time in Raleigh the next AM, YOU NEVER KNOW…

    Gillmore certainly has proven his worth….wonder how many offers or phone calls he will turn down after next week is over. I HOPE they get the banner….and deservedly so….

    GO CHANTS….

    Brother-In-Law boarding a plane for Omaha in the morning. I hope he returns a happy man. Go Chants!

    I guess I’m gonna have to pull for the “Little Chicken Chandeliers”. Beats the heck out of a team named the “Little Putty Tats wearing Urange Lampshades”!
