The Book of Mike

"This is no junior college. This is the notorious University of Miami.” -- Marlins starter Dontrelle Willis, after getting knocked around for six runs in 2 1/3 innings by the Canes.

Why you should cheer for Miami tonight...

Miami will face off against Cal State Fullerton tonight in what is obviously a huge game for both teams. The winner gets a day off tomorrow and has the inside track to the championship series, while the losing team has to come back tomorrow and win, and then beat the team they lose to tonight twice (once on Wednesday and again on Thursday) in order to avoid elimination.

While I am a Miami fan through-and-through, I realize that not all of you may be as solid in your support of the Canes. Because of this I feel obligated to point out (and which can be verified on Fullerton’s baseball page) that Kevin Costner is a fan of the Titans. That alone should be reason enough to cheer for Miami. Costner, as you probably painfully remember is the “star” who brought us epics such as “Waterworld” and “For the Love of the Game” (where Costner allegedly deluded himself into thinking he could throw in the mid-80s – with his motion, I doubt he could reach the mid-60s). I’m also still trying to get over how many times I had to watch “Dances with Wolves” in High School (for some sort of a social studies project).

All kidding aside, it should be a great game tonight.
