Your in luck-guarding you is Tyler Hans-bro.' I can't believe that human "charge-actor" has not flopped on the floor and claimed a foul. the only thing more fraudulent than BH Obama is the myth of the invincibility of "Tar Hole Nation." As Sam Cassell, put it, "it's a wine an cheese crowd," When they lose, it's time to head to head for the exits and whine. My greatest joy is listening to the whine-fest that is the Tar-Heel post game radio show after a loss-priceless! They lost a football game to UVA on a last second field goal about 10 years ago and the radio crew had the unmitigated gall to claim that the ball had passed under the goal post, then was blown back by a rogue zephyr wind which transported the ball back in front and then over the crossbar-they talked about that for two weeks! Listen-I went to Wake Forest and I've heard their whining and BS for 25 years-I grew up a Tar Heel fan but when I went to law school, I made a 180-everyone of them in my class acted like UNC was the equivalent of Harvard-it's a great school, but I ain't buying that! They are passionate about their school and rightly so, but I recognize BS when I hear it-I try my best to hate Duke worse every year, but I simply can't, as despicable as they are. Go Deacs!
