My alma mater is going to the College World Series. First time ever! And I can't get anybody to go with me. Pathetic! I'm offering a free trip and still no takers.
I'm getting excuses like, "work", "kids", and my favorite, "I have surgery on Monday". Likely excuse.
I'm this close (picture me with my thumb and forefinger ever so slightly separated) from getting in the car and driving out there myself!
