Blame Cannada

Tributes to No. 11

There’s no protocol for what happened at Greer last week. There’s no good way to deal with the loss of a student athlete. You shouldn’t have to go through this sort of thing in high school.

Kids shouldn’t have to be heartbroken over the loss of a friend or family member. Parents shouldn’t be burying their own children.

Spending a billion

Let’s be honest, we’re all dreaming about what we would do with our Powerball winnings. With the jackpot surpassing a billion dollars this week, I’ve started to compile my own list of plans for the money. Just for fun, here are a few:

1. I would go see any game I wanted, whenever I wanted.

Clemsoning

Is this what my life has come to? Is this reality? Am I really about to root for Clemson in the national championship game?

I can’t believe this is something we’re talking about in early January—an undefeated, No. 1 Clemson team. It seems surreal.

This is a nightmare for Gamecock fans (I’m not one of those, by the way).

The piano

I’m not musically inclined.

I don’t know how to play any instruments (unless, of course, you’re counting the kazoo as an instrument…in which case, I am a beast at kazoo).

Emotional

It’s hard for me to get emotional during movies.

Perhaps it’s because I’m analytical, but it’s a rare occasion when I get so caught up in what’s happening on screen that an emotional response is triggered.

Throw all of that out the window when Star Wars is involved.

Oh, grandma

Hold on, Grandma! You’re gonna have to give me a minute!”

Those were my words Saturday night as my beloved Tar Heels dropped a last-second loss to Texas on the road in disgusting fashion.

13-0*

Clemson fans, you sit on a throne of lies!

Confetti fell, Dabo recited his victory speech during a post-game interview and DeShaun Watson performed the Heisman pose with the ACC Championship trophy…but it was all LIES.

You see, Clemson didn’t beat North Carolina on Saturday night.

The referees did.  

Calling it quits

Kobe Bryant is retiring, and he’s taking a big piece of my basketball-shaped heart with him.

I have to admit, when I heard this news a few days ago, I wasn’t shocked. Kobe has been a shadow of his former self these past few seasons, battling injury and suffering through some terrible years with some terrible teams.

For Gee

For a few minutes last Friday night, it wasn’t about a Greer football game.

It wasn’t about beating Union County. It wasn’t about the second round of the playoffs. It had nothing to do with an undefeated Yellow Jacket team.

It was about the team’s number one fan, Gee.

Playoffs predictions

The playoffs are finally here and two of our teams have a legitimate opportunity to make some history in the next few weeks. Greer has been on a tear once again, breezing through the regular season with a perfect 10-0 record.
