This is it! Now or never! Come on Vanderbilt! - 06/25/14

Vanderbilt plays Virginia in a decisive Game 3 at the College World Series.  Last night, the Commodores missed their opportunity to bring home the title.  But the good news, they have another chance.  One last shot.

This is it!  Now or never!  Come on Vanderbilt!  How's that for unbiased?  I don't care.  When you cover a team long enough, you get to know the players and coaches and when they're as good a group as this, it's impossible not to cheer for them.

It will certainly be a pressure-packed night in Omaha.  But I don't think Tim Corbin's bunch should feel any pressure.  The Cavaliers have to be the favorites.  They're the higher seed.

And if you ask anyone who knows college baseball, they'll tell you they're not suprised one bit to see UVA in the Championship Series.  Some of those same people wouldn't say the same about Vanderbilt.

So, relax Commodores.  Have fun.  Soak up the moment.  If you do, you might just end up National Champions!

TIPPING HOTEL MAIDS

NEW YORK (AP) -- Tip the maid. That's the goal of "The Envelope Please" campaign. Former California first lady Maria Shriver and Marriott are launching a program to encourage the tipping of hotel maids. The name of the person who cleans the room will be written on envelopes left in the rooms. Shriver is the founder of an organization called A Woman's Nation that aims to empower women. She says many travelers don't realize tipping is customary. So how much do you leave? Marriott International CEO Arne Sorenson says usually $1 to $5 per night.
