Well, the Macbook Pro hasn't yet come back to life, but here's some resources for you if you're looking for College World Series stuff. Very frustrating - I haven't lost data as I do keep backups, but... at this point in time, I don't really have another machine that provides me the tools I use for blogging on a regular basis. That part sucks .

Stanford has to be the biggest surprise this season, especially with the other surprise being that Arizona State isn't in Omaha. The Pac 10 was supposed to be a powerhouse conference this season, and for Stanford to be the team that came out of it - wow, shocking.
Florida State has been to Omaha 19 times without winning a national title. Maybe they should be considered an underdog - but I doubt many people have sympathy for the 'Noles.
If there are Rice, Fresno State, or Stanford bloggers out there covering their baseball team, please leave a note in the comment section.
