Today I sketched outside and in the kitchen in the large sketchbook but with a Micron 05 pen. Then I scanned the sketch. Another look and the fatter nib makes the lines darker. Good to change once in a while.

We have been busy with The University of Texas Baseball Team. After the loss of the Big 12 Tournament in Oklahoma City we were resigned to the fact that there would be no Regional games in Austin. In a way it was good, because the Longhorns have been playing better on the road over all. The Regional was in Houston at Reckling Park, home of the Rice Owls. The Longhorns played well and ended up winning! In winning they had to beat the Texas A&M Aggies twice. Sweet, as the Aggies are no longer in the Big 12 and the teams do not play on the regular schedule.
The winner of the Houston Regional, the Longhorns, were set in the NCAA bracket to then play the winner of the Regional held at LSU in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. We were expecting LSU to win and that the Horns would travel for the Super Regional. Houston Cougars won that regional and the NCAA had to decide where the Longhorns and Cougars would play. They picked UFCU Disch-Falk field in Austin so the Longhorns would be playing on their home field.
The Super Regional's winner is picked by the winner of 2 out of 3 games and goes on to play in Omaha for the College World Series. We were just a bit worried as the games were at Home! The flip of the coin made Texas the visitors for the first game and that eased the worry a bit. Ha. The stands were filled and Texas won the first game 4 - 2 on Friday afternoon. Saturday afternoon, the Longhorns were the home team but they have found their stride and beat the Cougars 4 - 0.
Now they will face the Anteaters from UC Irvine at the first game of the College World Series in Omaha on June 14. Hook 'em Horns!!
Here are a few photos from Friday afternoon taken with my iPhone.
If you like baseball at all reading essays by Bill Little are so interesting. Bill knows Texas Sports and writes well. He has been at UT forever! He announces the baseball games, too. This one is about Houston and Texas rivalry and the road to Omaha.
