This weekend we had the fun of partaking of the College World Series game between Mississippi and Texas. As most of you already know, Texas pulled out a win with a series of walks in the bottom of the ninth inning. As much fun as watching the game was, I could not help but see the dome of the Henry Doorly Zoo’s Desert Dome poking up high overtop right field. Yes, even from a seat only about 5 up from the in-field next to first base, we were able to spot about a third of the dome glisining in the sunsets fading rays of the afternoon. And to think that in few years we could very well be standing in almost the same spot and be viewing something totally new.
After the College World Series moves to downtown Omaha, it will be interesting to see what plans sprout and grow in what is to become the new seeding ground for Henry Doorly Zoo.
