No More Plumlees?

Dec 17,’14:  I noted several years ago that the degrees of separation between me and ACC Basketball were increasing exponentially.  That has increased to leaps and bounds.

Of the three local teams’ “regulars” I only know one name – Marcus Paige.  You could show me all the other names.   I could not assign any of them to a team.  Of the ACC coaches, yes I do know the local three and Boeheim and Pitino.  That’s it.   Wait, there’s Danny Manning at Wake and the UVa guy “left his heart in San Francisco”.   I keep wanting to call Gottfried Mike rather than Mark.  It IS “Mark” isn’t it?

I'm sure ACC Basketball and I will both survive.

Butch / OTL / TGU etc. 2.0

Dec 14,’14:  It’s Sunday and ESPN is running a Butch Davis Marathon.  There’s Butch – The Miami Years on 30/30 simultaneous with Butch – the UNC Scapegoat on OTL TWICE.   Is there a Butch – The Cleveland Years somewhere?   Is Butch trolling for the Michigan job?

Butch aside, there’s no such thing as too much Great Unpleasantness on The Worldwide Leader.   In addition to Double Butcher there was “That Damn” Dan Kane and there’s even “that other” Bob Ley LIVE from Bristol.   

And later today we get JOHNNY MANZIEL’S NFL DEBUT.   Is this a Lalapalooza Sunday or What?

Butch and Mack "Plead Sgt Schultz" and

Dec 13,’14:  No, I did not attend any of the numerous Watch Parties held for Friday night’s Butch Does ESPN’s Outside The Lines Show.   I prefer to watch such extravaganzas from the comforts of my Home Theater.

ESPN had two of its current employees – “The Butcher of Kenan” and “The Right Reverend Mack Brown” on adjacent stools being queried by some guy from OTL.  As I’m sure you all already know – Butch & Mack “Went Sgt. Schultz” sans the German army helmets.   

As Butch “pled the Schultz” I wondered where are NASCarl Torbush and Burly John Bunting?   I figure either (1) Carl and John not being ESPN employees, might have expected travel expenses, or (2) ESPN OTL only had two stools.

AP: Vince Flynn Predicted This....

Dec 13,’14:   AgentPierce has a terrific piece recounting how the late best-selling author Vince Flynn predicted this latest radical left-wing attack on the American Intelligence Community back in 2008 in his book Extreme Measures.

NOTHING is Certainly A Possibility!

Dec 11,’14:  If I had a nickel for every time, over the past several years, I’ve been asked “So BobLee, what’s eventually going to happen at Carolina?”   Boy, would I have an awful lot of nickels.   If I got a quarter I would be in Ken Wainstein's tax bracket.

Within a few hundred miles of Ground Zero that question is much more prevalent than “Who will be the 4th playoff team?” or even “How will Johnny Manziel do this Sunday?”.    UNC’s Fate even more on the regional mind than Johnny Manziel ???   WOW!

.... and a few other lesser items, too.

AP: Sports is on a VERY Slippery Slope

Dec 9,’14:  Everyone who is AGAINST Freedom of Speech raise your hand.   How about “finding a cure for breast cancer?  Anyone opposed to THAT?.... How about “9/11”?  Everyone agree that was a huge tragedy?  OK, I see a few IslamoTerrorists out there shaking your heads.  

How about “Ferguson”?  The NFL and now the NBA are sheepishly complicit in giving a voice to Just One Side of a very volatile issue.

A Brand New Tradition Like No Other!

Dec 8,’14:  Yesterday saw the Dawn of a new American Tradition.... “Where were you when The First Final Football Four were announced?”  Will this latest annual made-for-TV soectacular go the way of other such eagerly anticipated BFDs?

Cities vieing to host The Announcement show..... The Beyonces and Taylor Swifts performing.... “The Event” even getting its official name from Lamar Hunt’s granddaughter’s toy – i.e. Super Ball = Super Bowl.

I think TeamCondi got it right enough to satisfy as many fans as will ever be satisfied with any decision involving sports.  Both Baylor and TCU are private “faith-based” institutions.   Was their snubbing just the latest attack on Christianity in America?

AP: I Agree (??) With The UNC-CH Whinners

Dec 4,’14:  STOP THE PRESSES!   A motley little gaggle of runny-nosed whinny misfit toys are doing their votive candle, locking-arms, aswaying and abeseeching act as generations before them have done so predictably over at The Flagship.  This time, of course, its “Ferguson”.   Next week it will be something else.....  I agree with them... SORT of!
