Your Co-(at least) Pac-10 Champs
Congrats to the ASU baseball team for sweeping defending national champs Oregon State in Corvallis this weekend, locking down at least a tie for the Pac-10 regular season championship. All the Devils have to do to clinch is win one out of three at home this weekend against U of A, who will undoubtedly have upset on their minds. Self-congratulations should probably be kept to a minimum considering the history of this rivalry (see Cecil, Chuck: 1986.), but at the very least it's good to see the Sun Devils peaking at the right time, having swept the Beavers and UCLA on consecutive weekends. If UA somehow sweeps ASU this weekend, the Devils and Cats would tie for the Pac-10 title so nothing can be taken lightly.
In a somewhat related story, ASU softball advanced to a super regional to be held in Tempe. Um, yay? Sorry but I just can't get too excited about softball. Even in May. Supposedly golf, track, and gymnastics are good too, but who has time?
