College Sports WILL Be Changing.

April 7,’14:  This Northwestern Union thingy might not be “the straw”..... even The Dreaded O’Bannon Case may not “do it” BUT the camel’s back of Big Time College Sports is hanging by the slimmest of threads.  It IS going to break and soon. “Soon” being within three years..... or sooner.

A victim of its own gluttony?  A Tower of Babel built by decades of unresponsive ostrich management?  ESPN?  The Internet?  A bread & circus constituency?  The natural evolution of all cultural mores?

I vote for all of the above.  BUT, not to worry Bunky....

AP: Meet Kim Strach..... NC's Dr Van Helsing !!!

April 4,’14:   I will be VERY impressed if you recognize the name Kim Strach.   You would have to be (1) an NC state government administration “wonk” or (2) “a Strach”.... or (3) someone who enjoys treking about in the Great Dismal Swamp of “the campaign / election bizness”.

Most of you may not recognize “Van Helsing” either.  Peter Cushing and, more recently, Hugh Jackman portrayed Bram Stoker’s legendary Vampire Hunter on-screen.

Internet history being made here as I, AgentPierce, connect  that purty little lady over in the Elections office  to the Scourge of The Undead - aka BullyBarber’s mob-minions.  Grab a crucifix and some garlic and .....

READ ON.  If you dare ..... bwahahaha!

AP: UNC BOG 101... Pre-"New Breed"

April 2,’14:  I do enjoy poking around The UNC Board of Governors.  The noble concept of that august body  incorporates so many of the fascinating incongruities within our representative republic, especially of a socio-political nature.  Incongruities reflecting the broad spectrum of human nature.  Human nature doesn’t change, ergo much of the derm & strang involving “The UNC BOG” will not be changing within our lifetime

.... but some of it HAS changed.  Maybe more will be changing.

I Broke My Own Rule.....

March 30,’14:  I broke my own rule last night.  I “got emotional” at the end of Wisconsin v Arizona despite having no dog in that fight whatsoever.  This pathological over-saturation with “instant replay” reviews may be a worse plague on sports than “board monkeys”.  OK, nothing is THAT bad.

The Wiscy / Zona game was as fine a competitive basketball game as I can recall.  That at several points there were eight white kids on the court out of ten was irrelevant but OMG.... we haven’t seen THAT since the game BEFORE Rupp’s Runts played Texas Western in 1966. 

..... Really, it looked like a noon pick-up game at Raleigh’s Downtown Y.  I kept looking for Smedes York, Danny Lotz and Lou Pucillo. .....

AP: BAZILLIONS Flock To Raleigh Right-Wing Rally!

March 30,’14:  BAZILLIONS of God-luvin' Conservative pilgrims FLOCKED to Raleigh this past weekend.   Their numbers so numerous they blotted out the sun and backed-up traffic all the way to Mebane. ..... OK, not quite THAT many but they didn't have Jim Goodmon's "logistics expert" Peter Anlyan on staff. There WERE a bunch of'em.  ..... But "80-100,000" is hyberbolic BS used to fool Rev BullyBillyBarber's Low Information Hoot 'n Haters.

The Civitas Institute held its annual Conservative Leadership Conference this weekend.   The Raleigh Crabtree Marriott was overflowing with polite, smiling mainstream Americans.  None were "armed".... and none were demanding abortions.

Obvious differences between Civitas' conference and a BullyBilly Hoot &Hate are: (1) gender preferences were generally limited to two for this one.... and (2) what few signs were displayed were spelled correctly and devoid of obscenities.  There were no trashed-out mini-vans with Asheville plates.   OK ... there were A LOT of differences....

Hey Rosa! Where's My HazMat Suit?

March 28,'14:  I told you earlier this week how tired I am of shoveling the sludge from The Great Unpleasantness, but I do what I gotta do.   So I get back from my wonderful weekend sojourn into “yesteryear” when the worst story on sports was “Does Gaylord Perry throw a spitball?” and here comes more yuck spewing out of Chapel Hill.

There are little kids in kindergarten who have never known a world when The Old Well was not ringed with yellow Crime Scene tape. 

Holy Rosa Parks, Mr Friday! ......

AP: McClatchy's Latest WHO ?? MayorCannonWHO ??

March 28,’14:  In the context of “this week” and “in North Carolina”; where were you when you heard: The FBI Have Arrested Charlotte’s Mayor Cannon!.   The story “broke” around 2:30 PM on Wednesday.

Within 90 minutes, those whizbang newshounds at McClatchy’s Charlotte Observer had a lengthy on-line article quoting dozens of semi-prominent Charlotteans / Mecklenburgerites documenting dozens of instances of “Heck, we all knew Patrick was crooked as a dog’s hind leg.”  YIKES! 

They KNEW, and McClatchy editors knew !  Another RielleWho !!.....

AP: Not ANOTHER One.... Yep.

March 26,’14:  I was at a local Panera’s with Eric My Website Guy when my email went to WILDFIRE mode.   Ten emails within five minutes containing the three words “Charlotte Mayor Arrested”.  I reckon you’ve heard, huh?

Eric and I concluded our business.  It had been another fifteen minutes and I had another dozen emails about “it”.   I got up-to-speed thinking: Not ANOTHER One! ..... and quickly decided what I would do about “it” – Not Much.   And here’s why.....
