American Idol in Greensboro: very interesting to see who turned out from our fair city, and I want to reitirate that the beligerant woman at the end was from CHARLOTTE! The one guy who identified himself as UNCG student did nothing to dispell the stereotypes that people have of the school. Question: Do the "bad" performers really think that they are good or are they just wanting to be on TV?
NFL prediction: I am going with my heart and picking the Steelers (even though I think Shawn Alexander and Matt Hasselback are swell guys). Plus, the Steelers have two Tar Heels playing prominant roles, Will Parker and Jeff Reed.
UNC B-ball update: The up-and-down Heels are up right now, although I wish that they had shot that well agains Boston College, since I was at that game and had excellent seats. When the Heels play together and play "D", they are a lot of fun to watch, win or lose. When they play like the ball is a piece of radioactive poop that they don't want to hold onto, it's not fun to watch.
TV Suggestion: If you've not given a look to "My Name Is Earl" and "The Office" (NBC, Thurs. @ 9:00 and 9:30), do yourself a favor and spend an hour with them. The Office is especially hilarious (especially if you like Christopher Guest films).
UNC B-ball update 2: In Sports Illustrated this week, one NBA scout rated Tyler Hansbrough as the fourth best college prospect for the upcoming draft. Tyler, don't believe the hype! You need to stay at least two more years to work on your mid-range jumper and going to the hole off the dribble. (But I will say that if he doesn't make first-team All-ACC, it will be a shame).
