Cinderella lives on

The UC Irvine Anteaters quickly are becoming my favorite team in the College World Series. Well, sentimentally at least.

And, if I had to guess, the scrappy bunch of kids from the OC already have left an impression on the Heartland this week.

The Anteaters knocked off Texas and Wichita State in the regionals and super regionals en route to their first CWS appearance. Now they're playing giant killer again.

Monday, the 'Eaters survived the longest game in CWS history -- 5 hours, 40 minutes -- to send four-time CWS champ Cal State Fullerton home. I blogged earlier in the CWS about how never to count out Oregon State. I'm beginning to feel the same way about Irvine.

Should the 'Eaters and Beavers meet, we may see a game that never ends.
