Re: 2017 College World Series

LSU vs Florida for the best of 3 Champ series starting Monday night. Great for Omaha and the series (IMO) to have baseball on Saturday. That is the way the schedule should be.

Re: 2017 College World Series

Interesting fact posted on one of the KETV Facebook pages earlier today. Today's elimination game between Fl St and CSF is the 1,000th CWS game to be played in Omaha. That really drives home the longevity that this series and Omaha have had.

Per the OWH today there is another group looking at Omaha as a potential location for a new Pro soccer team.

Interesting. Been some rumors of this I had been seeing for a while. Will enhance Amazon't ability to do home delivery of groceries.

Along with this, when it was rumored, I have seen rumors that Amazon may be looking at Acquiring Dish Network. That would create some interesting possibilities.

Sounds like a great idea. Slow down the process of getting to the lots even more and push some of the visitors into the neighborhoods even on days that is is not needed because of the crowds being smaller.

Not sure that will solve the issues

Re: Omaha's Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium

IMO the parking lot expansions have made the traffic flow through the parking areas much worse. There seems to be no natural flow at all. Granted it is larger but that is not the issue. The Zoo has hit a lot of home runs ( pun intended) but the new parking layout is not one of them.
