I will try to update this recap late Saturday after the outdoor game. Speaking of the outdoor game, click here to check out the "Battles on Ice" article I posted the other day which has a lot of good information if you are planning on attending. I will try to utilize the blog's Twitter page tomorrow to tweet updates throughout the day. So stoked to be up in Omaha 12 hours from now! See you all at TD Ameritrade Park.
