Carolina Basketball Season Preview

Wednesday marked the beginning of the college basketball season, and like everything this year, it didn’t go exactly as planned. Some games were cancelled, some were postponed, some games had an official test positive right before the game tipped off. But the Heels managed to get their season underway with a win over College of Charleston.   Since it’s always wise toContinue reading “Carolina Basketball Season Preview”

Weekly Ramblings – November 22

After our exhaustive, or perhaps exhausting, coverage of The Masters, we gave our staff most of the week off in order to recover. That was a lot of pimiento cheese, after all. Regardless, we’ve located all of our pants with elastic waistbands and we’re back with our usual Sunday stroll through the world of sport.  College Football  COVID continues to dominate, but college football is pressing on, and we’d expect nothingContinue reading “Weekly Ramblings – November 22”

Saturday Masters Update

Apparently, more golfers need to embrace the sandwich as their favorite Masters tradition. Enough of the Green Jackets, the Par 3 Contest or skipping balls across the pond at 16 during practice rounds. It’s all about the sandwiches. And Masters Sunday will be all about DJ.   Despite all the big names bunched on the leaderboard going into the third round, oneContinue reading “Saturday Masters Update”

Masters Thursday Update

2020 just couldn’t let us have nice things, at least not without making sure we remember who is really in charge.

Ten to Win the Masters – For Real!

Back in April, it was a simpler time. We figured COVID would last a few weeks so we started a blog and figured it would probably not last much longer. Well, here we are in November and COVID still exists, and perhaps more surprisingly, this blog still exists.   Way back when, we were longing for the Masters so we wrote a column picking whoContinue reading “Ten to Win the Masters – For Real!”

Who We’re Rooting For @ Augusta

Way back in early April when they postponed the Masters, we did a hypothetical Ten to Win for no other reason than there were literally no sports happening, so we had to come up with something. For both of you that have stuck with us through the ensuing seven months, our kudos. Frankly, we weren’t sure we’d still be around, much less anyone actual reading it.  Well, it isContinue reading “Who We’re Rooting For @ Augusta”

Weekly Ramblings November 8

Well friends, we made it. Many times, it felt like this day would never come. We’ve lived with fear, uncertainty, sadness, anger and confusion. Through it all though, hope remained and today, finally, we can breathe a little easier, the sun shines a little brighter, the birds chirp a little happier and food tastes a little sweeter. That’s right, it’s Masters Week.  We’ll have plenty of coverage throughoutContinue reading “Weekly Ramblings November 8”
