Georgia Baseball 2008 SEC Champions

Georgia opens the season next Friday at home against Youngstown State in baseball. We are LOADED with talent. Last season was one of the most gratifying teams to watch in Georgia sports history. Will we get back to Omaha this season? Who knows....but I'll be watching and will never bet against David Perno.

Oh, and our pitching staff is possibly more talented than the Braves. Seriously.

One of Georgia's all-time greatest leaders

The best thing about Georgia baseball is David Perno. We are so very lucky to have him. Here is what I said about Perno before the Regionals last year:

Basically I'm going with UGA because of Perno. The sumbitch imposes his will on a team as good as any manager. He's a winner and his teams that have had talent have lived up to it. He has 2 SEC Championships and is chasing his 3rd CWS trip since 2002 (the programs 4th this decade).

Anybody that's ever heard me talk about him knows how highly I think of him. I actually think he'll go down as one of the greatest ever college coaches after his career is over. He just has 'it'. He wills his teams and inspires his players. Kind of like Suzanne Yoculan. Back when SNL was good, Chris Farley did a Perno impression:

When the calendar switches over to baseball season, it also means that whiffle ball season isn't far behind. Does anyone else still get together to play whiffle ball like I and my friends do? Check out this video of some whiffle ball madness: http://www.yardbarker.com/backyard/articles/Worlds_Sickest_Wiffle_Ball_Pitcher_Video/28068

Go Diamond Dawgs! I hope 2009 is the year we break out of our odd-year funk we've been in recently.
