Baseball, Fireworks, and "Vandyville"

Let me begin by apologizing to the millions who read this blog at least three-ten times a day, I've had to take a brief hiatus from my baseball recaps and previews, however, I promise to return to true, mid-season form later this week.

Now, I realize that it is March, arguably the greatest time of the year for college sports fanatics, but I couldn't pass up the opportunity to pass this along to the VSL faithful. Besides, when, while attending Vanderbilt, did Hawkins Field ever look THIS FULL!:
If you think that Vanderbilt has been concentrating all of its marketing efforts on becoming 'Banded Together', think again. It was announced today that beginning Friday, March 16th and continuing every Friday for every game of the regular season, there will be a post-game Fireworks show.

On top of this, Vanderbilt will sponsor "Vandyville at Baseball" throughout the regular season. Vandyville is tailgating party that, traditionally, only occurs prior to home football games. It will include tailgating tents, inflatable games, and kids activities on Jess Neely Drive.

Eric Nichols, Director of Marketing had this to say regarding the Commies and their efforts on the diamond thus far this season, "Coach Corbin and his team have played themselves to the top of the college baseball landscape and deserve to have every seat taken for every game on the schedule."
On a scheduling note, Vandy travels to Belmont today to conclude their home-home season series before opening SEC play against Ole Miss this weekend.

Not sure where to post this but I wanted to ask if anyone has heard of National Clicks?

Can someone help me find it?

Overheard some co-workers talking about it all week but didn't have time to ask so I thought I would post it here to see if someone could help me out.

Seems to be getting alot of buzz right now.
