Weekend Watch: June 1-3
BASEBALL - All eyes around here are on Boshamer Stadium and the NCAA Regional. Carolina hosts Cornell, East Carolina and St. John's for a chance to advance to the Super Regional and toward Omaha and the College World Series. The Tar Heels open play with Game Two against Cornell. Weather has moved Friday's games up, so St. John's and ECU will begin play at 11 a.m. If you can't be at Boshamer Stadium, you can watch today's Carolina game at TarHeelBlue.com.
Play continues through Sunday (and maybe Monday). Carolina beat St. John's earlier this season, 8-4, on February 28, and topped East Carolina 1-0 in ten innings on April 25. The Tar Heels have not played Cornell this year.

Oh look, there's another Snow White movie.
I just read the first four chapters of Redshirts. You know how on Star Trek, you always knew the guy wearing the red shirt on the away team wasn't coming back to the Enterprise? That's what this book is about.
Sorry we're a little light this week. Time to get to the Bosh.
