More Obama + Heels

Apparently this morning Obama played a little pick up with the fellas.  Let’s hope Tyler didn’t go all Psycho T on him. 

More coverage in the N&O.

But overcoming the likes of Tyler Hansbrough, the national collegiate player of the year, proved difficult for the 46-year-old presidential hopeful.

With more than a dozen members of the national press corps and several local TV crews watching on the sidelines, Obama took on the tough center, but missed to a resounding “ooh.”

“I thought I had one over the national player of the year,” the candidate said.

Obama kept up with the run-and-gun pace for at least five minutes before benching himself. When he got back in the game, Coach Roy Williams called a play.

“You’ve got the future president of the United States wide open,” Williams told his players.

Last night at the Obama Rally in the Dean E. Smith Center, Mr. Sam Perkins urged a crowd of 15,000 or so enthusiatic Obama fans to “wear the uniform of hope”.  But just before that he turned to a young man standing behind him in the stands (an unusual place to see Ty Lawson), waved his arm over the cheering crowd, and explained, “This is why you stay in school all four years”.

Big Smooth knows.  But will his message of hope reach the people?

And if there is news. . . . I’ll probably be too busy working for Barack Obama to blog.

Tar Heel Fan should have any news should there be some. Have a great weekend!

Carolina Overwhelmingly Rad

Performances like the two that the Tar Heels had this weekend are absolutely the kind that title winners have. Arkansas may have played poorly, but even if they had played well, they probably would have lost by 20. Sure, there is no reason to get carried away by two expected wins, but watching this team play their best basketball of the season in March is so encouraging. If Carolina plays like that, I’m not sure anyone can beat them. I think we were starting to see this team right before Lawson went down, and while it did take a bit of time for him to find his confidence, this team is awfully difficult to stop with Tywon running things. We also saw the Deon Thompson that we had hoped would adequately replace Brandan Wright for the first time all season. I’m not saying he was as good, but he was contesting penetration (heh) and just awesome on the offensive end. Washington State will certainly offer a different challenge, and the four best teams in the East will be in Charlotte. Hard not feel confident anyways, no?

Dook sucks. How fantastic is it that DBR had to shut down its boards on Saturday? You might think it was due to trolls, but really it was tons of irate Dook supporters. Dook certainly has lost a bit of luster and when considering that Coach K is on TV more than reruns of Leave It To Beaver, they should be competing for the title every year. I do think some of them have gone overboard though. Dook out-performed most of the pre-season expectations and the Nolan Smith injury killed them. At any rate, I fully support any movement to fire the rat!

Dook Jr. does not suck. I’m no fan of small elite private schools and the Wildcats are pretty hard to support. The were clearly under-seeded and Wisconsin better be ready. I do wonder how they got to play Georgetown in North Carolina. Not too much though.

One shining muppet. A leg of lamb? Premiership lowlights.

Ryan Reid will F you up.

Captain Thuggerton

Not content to demonstrate his borderline criminal style of play by taking Ty Lawson out of the game and almost doing the same to Tyler Hansbrough, Ryan Reid was ejected from the FSU-Wake Forest game last night for punching Chas McFarland in the chest.   I have but one thing to say about this.

 Ryan, work on that.  If you’re trying to be a gametime thug, take some lessons from Joey Barton and consider props.

Huh?

I found myself wondering who won, so I looked it up.

Dear NC State Fans

It must get under your skin that Coach Williams said last night on his radio broadcast that Lawson’s dunk didn’t bother him.  I guess it doesn’t matter that he hit the nail right on the head in his explanation.  They’re kids.  They just won a tremendously hard fought game in which both teams played a very high level of basketball.  Roy just didn’t think that it was that big a deal that Lawson decided to let loose and celebrate by dunking.  I’m inclined to agree, except for one thing.  I thought it was a HUGE deal. I was so glad that Lawson punctuated our victory with a slam (not his first of the season, mind you), a clap, and a F*ck Yeah.  It’s because I abhor NC State fans.

NC State fans, you are terrible.  Calling you obnoxious would be like calling Brian Peppers a little creepy. You think that you get a raw deal in the public eye because State-Haters bill you as redneck hicks.  Well, it’s not as though there isn’t some evidence out there.  And practically every time I come across a state fan, whether it be commenting on YouTube files, on message boards, on sports radio, in replies to online columns, or anywhere else, it’s the same stuff.  In fact, the only state fan that breaks this stereotype is my brother.  And lord knows what he says when we’re not together, working hard to keep our true feelings hidden from each other when we talk sports.

 There is a reason why Arizona State is my second favorite team in the NCAA.  There is a reason why I get sick to my stomach every time a full grown adult flashes that wolfie sign.  And it’s not that I hate NC State University.  I hate State fans.  You drove away the coach that gave you this team which you have been congratulating in-between expressions of your desire to get old school on Lawson and hang him from a tree.  You whine more than Jared Dudley after he attempts to drag Tylers broken nose to the back of his head.

But most of all, you call for violence just because a kid demonstrated his joy by scoring two points when he didn’t have to.  State fan, everyone in the region knows this but you.  You have no grasp whatsoever on what is fun about loyalty to a school or a team.  You miss the point entirely.  YOU PISS IN YOUR OWN STANDS.  So just accept that you are in fact the bottom of the sports fan barrel, and here’s to hoping that one of you doesn’t shoot another one of you in the parking lot this year.
