Greer will miss Tony Tipton

I’ve never seen a town that loves its football like Greer, and I’ve never met a man who loved Greer football quite like Tony Tipton.

Tony was an ambassador for Greer High School and an advocate for all Yellow Jacket sports. His passing will certainly leave a void in the hearts of his friends and family.

Due

This national championship was due for Clemson.

Over the past couple of years, there hasn’t been a college football team that has done more to put itself in a position to succeed like the Tigers.

2017

It’s something man knows very little about.

Each year, between 11:59 p.m. on Dec. 31 and 12:00 a.m. on Jan. 1, people resolve to become better versions of themselves, pledging to improve wealth, spirituality, physical appearance and all kinds of other good stuff.

I don’t get it.

Do-over

Alright, Clemson fans.

Second chances come so rarely in this life, but you’re about to get yours.

Ranking

As a lover of all things Christmas, I’ve decided I want to be your guide as you sort through all of the holiday movie choices. There are good ones out there, but there are also some really, really bad ones.

Late

My wife and I are habitually late.

This is not something I’m just now realizing, but it’s something I’m finally willing to admit out loud.

Haunting memory

As a North Carolina basketball fan, there’s a certain night in April I’ve tried to forget.

When your team loses the National Championship on a buzzer beater, you don’t recover quickly, if ever.

Choir practice

There are several years in my childhood I no longer speak of for fear of being made fun of.

Not that I’m a super self-conscious person, but I’d rather not bring unwanted ridicule on myself. I get enough of that as it is.

People watching

What’s more American than stuffing your face with Grandma’s delicious cooking before joining the line at Target to get your paws on that 50 inch flat screen for $199 bucks?

Not a thing.

Coach Lane

The Byrnes football program lost a head coach this week, and he was a really good one, too.

The Rebels are coming off one of their toughest seasons since the 1990s, only winning three games and failing to make the playoffs. Monday afternoon, it was announced that Brian Lane would be stepping down from his position.
