Wooooo Pig Sooie!!! Razorback Baseball Is Here!

Today the Razorbacks kick off the start of their college baseball season.  This should be a fun year for the Hogs who are ranked in the top 10 in most college baseball polls.  The pitching should be steller, led by Team USA member DJ Baxendale:

This is not my card, but I would like one.  If anyone has one of these, please let me know if you are willing to trade it.

The offense is good, and could be very good if some of the hitters progress as the coaches think they will.  This guy is very good:
This is my card, and it’s my second nice Ficociello card.  It’s cool to be able to get cards of these guys while they are still in college.  

If the weather is decent today or tomorrow, we’re going to venture out for a few innings.  When I come back I’ll bring pictures and we can all "Call the Hogs".  For those not in the know, you call the hogs by saying and doing the following:

Raise your hands in the air and wiggle your hands as you slowly say “Woooooooooooo” then bring your elbows  down as you emphatically say “Pig!” and then pump your right fist in the air as you say “Sooie!”
Do that 3 times.   On the third “Woooooo… PIG! Soooie!”  you keep continue to pump your fist in the air and say “Razorbacks!”    Practice it a few times and you’ll get the hang of it.

I wish I lived in a place where it was easy to get to watch some good college baseball. Well, I guess I could venture out to Queens to watch St. John's, but who the hell wants to do that? Better than watching the Mets, I guess.
