I have covered many different events but never the College World Series before this season.
I had no doubt I would cover in Omaha eventually. Leading up to this season I’d heard many glowing reports about Omaha and the CWS. Every one of those lived up to expectations including the price of hotel rooms, which was the only thing I would count as a negative in the experience.
I have a friend who counts one more in the negative column — the NCAA-sponsored process of ticket exchange from those who purchased original tickets to those looking to buy. I didn’t touch on that in the column.
The special event pricing, however, is something I think the city and its business leaders could restructure and still turn a nice profit — and do something for the people who pump millions into the Omaha economy in the meantime.
