I hope everyone had a good Fourth of July.

It was my son’s birthday, so we do our best of celebrating him and America.

Last night we went to the Storm Chasers’ game. It was unreal. There were ten home runs in the game, nine of those being hit by the Storm Chasers. They also scored 20 runs and scored in every inning that they played in. It was a great game for Omaha.

The Storm Chasers started the series with a bang, breaking modern franchise record for home runs in single game with nine while setting a season-high in attendance at over 8,500. The game featured two batters with multi-home run nights for just the second time this season.

Then of course there were fireworks.

Now onto your flakes.
