Fans soaked at 2013 CWS opening ceremony
Friday's 2013 College World Series opening ceremonies included a downpour which sent many fans to neighboring bars and restaurants and AKSARBENT to a McDonald's 10 blocks away where our video camera had a good view of the fireworks in pyrotechnics-mad Omaha. The show was upstaged by stroboscopic flashes of lightning. Very little snark at #CWS or #CWSOmaha except for this, which nonOmahans will not get at all:
