What a comeback. Huskers 9 Aggies 8 and then some.

I know this is somewhat old news to those who live here in Nebraska but I had to post this.

This weekend the Huskers posted one of the greatest come-from-behind victories in Nebraska baseball history. With the victory and another in the second game the 5th ranked Huskers pulled closer to first place in the Big 12.

In game one, Nebraska erased an 8-4 deficit by scoring five runs in the bottom of the ninth. On an emotional day where senior day and parents’ day were combined due to Saturday’s rainout, senior Mitch Abeita delivered the game-winning hit, singling up the middle on a 1-2 pitch to score Bryce Nimmo from second and end A&M’s conference-record Big 12 winning streak at 16 games.

They also pulled out the second game of the double-header to take the series from the conference leading Texas A&M Aggies. Go Huskers!

The whole story can be found here.

Update: With the Huskers defeating Creighton 8 – 1 tonight and a conference leading Texas A&M loss to Texas-Arlington, Nebraska is just a half game from 1st place. Woo Hoo!!

Music Review Tuesday – Whitesnake

Today I am reviewing a band who, like Bon Jovi, epitomized the big hair bands of the eighties and early ninties. Picture 5000 14 to 17 year old boys pumping their fists in the air to the tunes coming from 50,000 watt amps. This band has probably had the most member turnover comparable to the fictional Spinal Tap and yet has had only one lead singer. In fact the singer, David Coverdale, founded the band. The band (I can’t believe I am reviewing) is Whitesnake. I know, the same glam metal ballad laced band prominant on the MTV airwaves in the late eighties. The band that spawned the love affair and eventual marriage of video babe Tawny Kitaen (who appeared in most of the Whitesnake videos) and Coverdale. Whitesnake has had many talented musicians involved in many of the various projects over the years. Here are some of the many names: Jon Lord, John Sykes, Steve Vai, Vivian Campbell, Cozy Powell, Adrian Vandenberg, Tommy Aldrige, Rudy Sarzo, and Anysley Dunbar. These names alone represent the many bands spun from Whitesnake.
