The other thing we saw which was not related to baseball was the flooding. When you are from Texas, flooding is like another language but it is a serious problem there and they take it seriously. I did not realize that Omaha sits right on the Missouri River and it has beeen flooding big time. Our hotel was actually across the river to the east and actually in Iowa. I took some pictures of some of the flooding and levees so you can get the flavor.
The beach balls in the bleachers is a tradition at the CWS.
