Vince’s CWS Trip Day 3

*Gameday breakfast in the team serving room

*This amazing fan gathering in the lobby as John Wilkerson and I walked out of the elevators to head out to the ballpark

*Get to the stadium, our first setup in the radio booth for Tennessee with this view

*Had some nice visits from Knoxville media here to cover the game, as well as ESPN’s Tom Hart, that stopped in to say hello to us

*The game…obviously was a struggle for Tennessee in a 6-0 loss to Virginia

*Postgame from Tony Vitello and Connor Pavolony

*We visited the grounds of the old, legendary Rosenblatt Stadium with cool makings of the exact locations of the bases and the mound

*John and I took three tries at a postgame steak dinner, starting with “The Drover” that everybody has recommended (2+ hour wait) then 801 Chophouse (2+ hour wait) then finally lucked out and found Johnny’s Italian Steakhouse, with no wait, which was excellent

*We heard a lot about Ted & Wally’s Ice Cream, so we took a walk downtown to crush some fantastic ice cream
