June 2nd -- beginning of the College World Series regionals. Rice has been ranked #1 in the country for a while, which doesn't mean much by itself (still gotta win the games), but makes one slightly hopeful.
June 9th (actually, June 12th) -- group play for the World Cup in Germany begins. We're opening against the Czech Republic. We've got a tough group, and likely second place will end up playing Brazil in the first round of elimination play -- so a win would be nice.
