UNC Professor Reed Hits A Homer!

May 2,’15:   Our pal John Shelton Reed “hits a homer” with his latest analysis of The Great Unpleasantness – Scandal Reveals Two Cultures at UNC.   JSR’s take is how even behind the ivy-covered walls of academe, perspectives can be as varied as Kipling’s blind men analyzing that elephant.  BE WARNED:  JSR uses some esoteric phrases i.e. “big words”.   Some in both warring camps may get confused.

Apple Pie, Chevrolet, Urban Riots and BabyMamma-beaters

May 1,'15:   "Baseball, Hot Dogs, Apple Pie and Chevrolet....”  aired in 1972, is considered THE #1 car commercial jingle ever.   In 2015, this idealized view of America is beyond naively ridiculous.

Baltimore Burns and the Top Two Sports Role Models this week are Jameis Winston and Floyd Mayweather. ???.... while a gangly kid from Kinston finally answers BOT Barbara’s infamous question.

OMG: An Argyle Stripe!

April 22,’15:  I’m convinced the timing is a conspiracy involving the new 4th string QB of the Philly Eagles.   With America’s sports monkeys stunned that Chip Kelly would sign “a controversial Christian journeyman”, what calamitous announcement might divert their attention, angst and anger?

BubbaTheRealAD called Nike’s Phil Knight and Alexander Julian and VOILA – the bug-eyed ABC lynch mob has laser-focused its wrath on “an argyle stripe”.....

Oh To Be Rosco P. Coltrane and

April 20,’15:  .... if you only had a nickel for every waiter and parking attendant in Hollywood who would eagerly trade a kidney to “be Rosco P. Coltrane” !!   The one and only Sheriff Rosco Purvis Coltrane a/k/a James Best died, at 88, several weeks ago in Hickory NC.

It was a really rough week for “sideline eye-candy”.   A nice week for Frau Yow.   And just another week for addicts of The Great Unpleasantness.

The Masters, An Anachronism Like No Other

April 13,’15:   It’s slogan has become a punchline.   The event itself has become Sports’ #1 annual anachronism.   Never has it been more anachronistic than it was this past weekend.    It is The Masters.  A high % of regular readers of this website likely watched at least Sunday’s final round if not the entire event.   I did.   

Uh, BobLee, what does “anachronism” mean?

Another Greatest Ever Debate Rages.....

April 8,’15:  Coach K “looked for someone to hug”.... and crusty ol’ Bo went really crusty as confetti descended from the roof of The Lucas Barn in Eeeeevil Indiana.  Meanwhile along quaint Franklin Street, beleaguered TruBlues clung desperately to their suddenly very very important Helms Thing..... The Argument for Greatest Coach Ever raged along 15-501, but not in Storrs CT.

49 Years Later, Another One For The Ages.

April 5,’15:  On March 19, 1966 in Cole Field House, Willie Cager, “Big Daddy” Lattin, Bobby Joe Hill and their Texas Western Miners’ teammates made college basketball history.  If you are old enough to recall the names of Ben Cartwright’s sons, you know how.   49 years later, in much beleaguered Indiana, in yet another “Game for the Ages”; college basketball finds itself in a déjà vue dilemma.... with a Kentucky basketball coach still in the eye of the storm.

Carol Folt In a Pickle Over A Portrait

March 26,’15:  Borscht Belt comedian Red Buttons had a shtick about “ _______ never got a dinner”.   Red would do that shtick at Friars’ Roasts. ..... UNC-CH’s much-maligned munchkin Chancellor Carol Folt (From Dartmouth) finds her self in a sort of similar “pickle over a portrait”.   Apparently Carol was not universally admired within Dartmouth Nation. .... I can understand why.
