Christmas In Shreveport? Rekindling The Dream


Oct 20,’14:   In recent years, when it comes to a sure W in Chapel Hill, only David Price has been a safer bet than Paul Johnson’s vaunted triple-optioning Yellow Jackets....until last Saturday night.   Riding the right arm and feet of  ‘Quis Williams the Fighting Fedorians kept alive their dream of Christmas In Shreveport.

Meanwhile down in Talla-Jameis.... the team that wins by the bizarre rule (i.e. “roughing the deep snapper”) can die by the bizarre rule (“illegal rubbing”??).

Meanwhile over in WuffWorld.... between WuffDave, “PR”, Young Russell, and Mike Glennon; who had the best weekend?   Glennon.   His Bucs had an off-week.

And BobLee reveals his favorite TV commercial.

A Few Weeks of "Used to be".... sigh.


Oct 16,’14:  We took “a road trip” last week.  That can be the official reason for “no column for awhile” but there has been another reason.   I have been soooo enjoying the past few weeks of MLB Playoffs and NOT just because two of “my teams” (StL & KC) are in the thick of it.   That has been very cool I do admit.

What it has been is a coupla fun weeks of “used to be” for sports spectatoring.   But, alas,  “used to be” is then.... and now is now..... and the future is where we’re headed.... and Reality Bites!

Another Game Older and Deeper In.....


Oct 5,’14:  It was the ol’ peapicker hisself Tennessee Ernie Ford who sang of “Loadin’ sixteen tons and whatta you get?  Another day older and deeper in debt.  St Peter dontcha call me ‘cause I can’t go......”  Ol' Ern was no kin to Danny (Ford) that we know of.

The Fighting Fedorians and WuffDave’s Brickyard Warriors are, indeed, another game older than they were last week but not one day closer to Christmas In Shreveport.   Every young blue-chip recruit's dream of spending the Yuletide in a Bossier City casino wearing a cheap watch and a micro fleece warm-up suit is no closer to reality.   Woe is us!

There may be mucho joy in Mississippi on this Sunday morning, but for Triangle football fans it’s still Mudville....

Then the former Trustee said....


Sept 29,’14:  I received an email Sunday morning:  “BobLee, your and Art’s Good Sports’ pre-game show has become more entertaining than the games”.  Ouch!  Is that a version of the back-handed compliment re: “you sweat less than any other fat girl.....” comparison?   I replied, “Thanks, I guess.”

If you missed this past Saturday’s show while watching Jacoby outplay Jameis (for at least a half), you missed Art’s account of an encounter he had last week along fabled Franklin Street with a former UNC-CH Trustee.   In which the former UNC-CH Trustee said.....

Jeter & Jameis: Enigmas–Harbingers–Role Models


Sept 25,’14:  I prefer my eggs “over light”, my music “country” and my sports heroes “good guys”.   There are plenty of choices in these, and every, category.  I make no apologies for my choices.

The sports spotlight this past week has been on two very high profile “J” athletes..... Jameis and Jeter.   One is 20, the other 40.   The “20” has chosen to tattoo himself as a braying, cock-eyed cap wearing, serial misbehaving jackass.   The “40” walks off the biggest brightest stage in all of sports as an Icon for “consistently doing very well while doing right”.... and for dating supermodels.

The former is likely not as bad-to-the-bone as everyone outside SeminoleNation is convinced he is.   The latter is likely not as saintly as the endless tributes would have us believe.   Regardless, that two such opposite images are front & center side-by-side makes fascinating column fodder.
