Playing The End Game Game

June 23,’14:  We finally got a peek at Investigator Wainstein aka “$900/hour Ken From Washington”.   This leaves Deborah Crowder as the only yet-to-be-seen PrimeTimePlayer in the NeverEndin’ Unpleasantness.   

“$900/hour Ken” expects to turn in his exhaustive report “in the Fall” giving us 3-4 more months of thumb twiddlin’, bitchin’, blamin’, and teeth-grindin’.   Also it keeps me, Dan Kane and “the BusinessWeek guy” in easy column fodder.   Every ill wind blows someone’s sails.

Our recent “Lunch with ....” columns have gone mega-viral resulting in yours truly being summarily insulted by being called......

"Mary" has moxie.... and doesn't like Coach K.

June 17,’14:  They are both from the South Side of Chicago.... but she doesn’t drop F-bombs in conversation.   Neither of them are too popular along picturesque Franklin Street these days.  He would certainly be recognized....  she was not as we strolled that legendary sidewalk earlier today.  Both their names start with “M”.

She had a cheese quesadilla.  I had a cobb salad.   Who she ?   Oh, I’m sorry.  I had lunch Tuesday with Mary Willingham. ......

On A More Pleasant Subject

June 16,’14:  This is a deep cleansing breath column.   One that does not beat a certain “not dead yet” horse of infamous unpleasantness.   Fear not you fans of unpleasantness, we shall return to our favorite dumpster fire, but not today.

Mid June is either a marvelous buffet of sports viewing.... or a plethora of yawnful banality.   It’s not exactly a “tweener season” but neither is it “must see TV” unless it is to you.   We’ve got The CWS in Omaha, The World Cup in Rio, The Stanley Cup Finals, The US Open in Pinehurst (The Village of .....) and The NBA Finals.

Primal Hope / Primal Fear

June 13,’14:  I can’t keep pace with the verbal ping pong between Rashad McCants and RoyzBoyz.   WWI trench warfare with each side lobbing Big Bertha shells at one another.

Let us consider a dare-we-speak-of-it destination of all this.  Where one side gleefully Hopes it might lead.  Where the other side dreadfully Fears it might lead.

An InsideCarolina sniper could have.....

June 10,’14:  So I’m sitting at a booth at Breadmen’s on Rosemary Street in Chapel Hill enjoying a very pleasant lunch conversation over a bowl of brunswick stew. Suddenly it occurred to me – a sniper dispatched by InsideCarolina could score some bonus points, and become a hero in some beady eyes, if he knew the two who dats that were sitting there together.

That smart aleck BobLee..... and JAY SMITH !!!   THAT Jay Smith ??  Yep... that notorious UNC History Professor that is “out to destroy UNC Sports”.... if you believe the hyperbole hate spewed by the usual spewers of such drivel.   BobLee and Jay chatted about ships and sails and ceiling wax and "going to college".   Nice guy.  We intend to chat some more ......

June 7,’14:  Q:  What do Hurricanes, Tornados, Wild Frat Parties, and Rashad On ESPN all have in common?  A:  They all have an AFTERMATH Morning After.

We survey the AFTERMATH across The UNC / ABC Universe on "The Day After ......"

Then Rashad might say ______!

June 5,’14:  I try to stay away from rumors even ones from multiple solid sources.   But when the subject is Ye Olde Great Unpleasantness..... that spaceship left Planet Sanity a loooong time ago.   What rumor hasn’t been floated, digested and carved in stone by one or more partisan factions.   Try THIS ONE on for size:

The Buncombe County Bad Boy – Rashad McCants has struck a deal with ESPN to go on Outside The Lines and “tell all”.  Could Rashad be the Tru-Blue AntiChrist that ABCers have been waiting so impatiently for?   Could be.

CONFIRMED:   OTL on ESPN w/ Rashad = 3:00 PM Friday (Today)

AP: "... and two more were dry humpin' over in the corner."

June 5,’14:   Every “writer” gets asked two questions: (1) Where do you get your ideas, and (2) How do you go about writing a column.

For (1) I walk outside and shake a tree and ideas tumble out.  For (2) I come up with a provocative title, then compose 600-800 words beneath it.   I don’t think either method is taught in any creative writing class on Earth.

Today’s Eye-Catching Title came in the backwash of recent BullyBarber Mob attacks on the NC General Assembly.   Stuff Bully’s media DEFINITELY will hide from you.
