Blame Cannada


They go to work early. They stay late. They look after your children and spend countless hours finding ways to better educate them. They sacrifice time with their own families, so they can spend time with yours.

We owe a lot to our teachers, and we should show them how much we appreciate them this week.


I’m not what you would call “outdoorsy.”
I love campfires and S’mores and cool weather and clear skies, but I also like being inside.
I have nothing against camping. I’ve done it quite a bit, in fact.

Clearing the air

I could just let this die.
I probably should just let this die.
But what fun would that be?
If every journalist covering the Final Four in Phoenix can voice their opinion on UNC and the NCAA investigation into several of the university’s African American Studies classes, why can’t I?

Carolina victory

Sports have a funny way of always telling the perfect story.

I believe this now.

If you would’ve told me that last year, I would have called you a liar and told you where you could go. But as you know by now, my North Carolina Tar Heels have been redeemed and are champions of the college basketball world for the sixth time.

They’re back

I know this feels like destiny, Gamecock fans.
I know you’re heading into this weekend feeling like you’re going to win two games and cut down the nets in Phoenix.
Some of you may be on your way there now to witness it in person.
But before you get any further down this road, we need to talk.


It’s funny how moments I thought were the most important moments of my life can lose their significance in an instant.

Graduating college. Buying a home. Getting my first job…

None of this stuff matters when you compare it to seeing your child’s heartbeat for the first time.

Welcome to Greenville

One of the greatest sporting events of the year gets underway this weekend, and two national title contenders will begin their paths to the Final Four in Greenville.
Yep, the Tar Heels and Gamecocks are the favorites to win it all, and Upstate residents will get a front row seat to the first two rounds…

MJ’s coolness

The ceiling is the roof.”
These are the beautiful words of Michael Jordan, who addressed a sold out crowd at the Smith Center Saturday night at halftime of the North Carolina/Duke game.
For those that might be confused by this quote that has gone viral, there’s only one thing you need to understand.


There’s this recurring dream I have…
In it, I’m the best man in somebody’s wedding and I wake up on the day of the ceremony having forgotten to do all of my duties. I don’t have the tuxedo. I haven’t prepared the speech. I don’t even know where I need to be.
It’s a nightmare, actually.


What allows a Division I basketball team to win 100-straight games?

The short answer is: I have no idea.

Geno Auriemma, I guess. That has to be the answer, right? Nothing else makes sense.
