Wednesday Flakes Gets Hot At The CWS

If you buy something from an SB Nation link, Vox Media may earn a commission. See our ethics statement.

Man, there have been some games at the College World Series this year. Also, outside if yesterday it has been absolutely hot out. Stay hydrated for those who go as that sun will zap any moisture right out of you.

Also, isn’t it fun to have all these SEC teams up here spending their money? Oklahoma counts considering they’re pretty much there already. Just ask a Big 12 fan. Wait, are there even Big 12 fans? Good question that I should probably tackle at a later point.
