Did you get that? My Tar Heels are bowl eligible as of October 25th. Have I said how much I love Butch Davis? Yeah. So we beat Boston College yesterday. Really beat them. Not a squeaker, not a last minute field goal … we kicked their butts: 45-24. This is most satisfying because the last time we went to a bowl, in 2004, we lost to … drum roll, please … BC.
That fella you see over there? #88 Hakeem Nicks? Four touchdowns. I love Hakeem Nicks. He was just voted one of the permanent team captains. He promised his teammates he wouldn’t let them down. Whoa nellie.
I can’t get these games on TV down here in the land of Alabama and Auburn where they can’t get their heads out of the SEC. Of course, I come from ACC country, so who am I to talk? Anyway, I’m rediscovering the joy of listening to Carolina athletics via the voice of Woody Durham and it’s oh-so-grand.
I could put something here now about how Elizabeth Dole might just (probably will) get beat by her Democratic opponent Kay Hagan down there in the Tar Heel state so I could give political cover and credibility to this story for this blog on politics, but since I own this blog, I really won’t make apologies for simply revelling in the glory that is Tar Heel athletics.
